Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Smitten

It's that time again...Curtain Time!!  We are excited to present the new
 challenge, Smitten.
We have an awesome new sponsor, Linnie Blooms, who supplied each of the crew gals with a package of Faber-Castell Gelatos!  These amazing little "chapstick"-like watercolors bring about the most beautiful colors!
 I had the honor of receiving the Faber-Castell Gelatos 50's Diner set.  This was my first time working with this fun medium so I went searching YouTube for some ideas and ended up on a video by Tiffany Johnson.  She demonstrated several different techniques on how to use Gelatos.  I fell in love with the idea of using them to enhance embossing.  For my card  I embossed the top pink panel with Cuttlebug's Hugs & Kisses folder and then lightly took the Squid (Grey) tube to highlight the embossing.  I can't wait to try another fun technique with them!!
Paper: Grey CS, Love Me 6x6 Pad (My Minds Eye); Stamps: Salutations (Paper Smooches); Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Tools: Hugs & Kisses Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Fishtail Flags Stax (Die-Namics), Of the Heart Dies (Lil' Inkers); Other:  Faber-Castell Gelatos 50's Diner, Satin Ribbon, Rhinestone, Foam Tape

Make sure to to check out what the rest of the Curtain Call Crew and our special guests have created for you!!
