Viva Crystal Gel - ROCKS!

Ok, first just let me say THIS STUFF FREAKIN' ROCKS!!  You absolutely must add this to your supplies.  Really, it is the BOMB!!  I will be posting some various things during the next few days with tons of different ways to use it.  In the meantime I have this to share with you and there are several more creations on the SCACD store blog Follow Your Heart so check them out.

First, I grabbed the FABULOUS Viva Decor Crystal Gel in orange gold and my silicone mold called Lace and created the elements above and below the image.  -more detail below.  I then stamped Fairy Queen and stamped her in black on kraft cardstock.  Some inking, some tearing and a lot more inking later, she was ready.  I also inked and shimmer sprayed the lace behind the image then added my completed embellishments.  They were truly the perfect finishing touch!

I won't go into a ton of detail about how to actually use the gel and molds to create these items because there are videos available on the store blog that will do a much better job.  However, I DO want you to know that there is a TON of stuff you can do with them.  The ones here I used the metallic rubons at SCACD on them to bring out the detail.

You can also...
paint them
use beads in them
punch them
texture with it
and all sorts of other fun things!  The sky is pretty much the limit!!  So, go watch the videos, check out the other creations, go shopping, and get ready to PLAY!!!  oh yeah- and watch this space for more examples, LOL!
