Gelatos with a Touch of Gold

Over the past couple of days, I've been participating in the Studio Calico CHA 2014 Crop. We've had lots of fun sharing and creating together. Challenge #2 is a color challenge to use navy, pool, lime, pink, and gold. I will admit, I am not a huge fan of gold on layouts (I prefer silver), but sometimes you have to go with the flow. Challenge #8 is to use a digital die cut element on the layout. I decided to combine the two challenges and much to my surprise, I actually love the small touches of gold on this layout!

I started with the digital element of the hearts from SC's digital shop. I used my Cameo to cut the hearts, I also used the Cameo to sketch hearts on another sheet of cardstock to use as a template for painting. I took the sketched cardstock and painted in the hearts with Gelatos, I also added a sheet of vellum over the painted hearts to soften the colors. The die cut hearts were placed over the top and with a few embellishments the layout was complete

This layout is proof that I need to be a little more open to trends that I don't like. Are you team silver or team gold? :) I am happy to report that I've seen some silver popping up in the CHA sneaks!


  1. Super cute layout, love the colors! I'm team silver with everything except my scrapbooking. Go figure!?! :)

  2. I've been team silver for forever, but gold has definitely been winning me over lately!

  3. I'm with ya... I prefer silver over gold too. I just made a card tonight though and I used gold butterflies.
    I really love the technique used here on your page... love the heart pattern! Looks terrific girl :)

  4. I am totally team silver BUT lately I have been slightly drawn to gold if it is paired with the right colors. LOVe this LO!

  5. This is so pretty!
    Hope you are well.
    Just stopped by to say hello and that I miss you on the MB!
