I just got some Gelatos, and used them to make the background. Actually this is the first background I made, but it proved too restless for the little boy, so the one you see here is my second play. I wanted some additional texture and used heavy gloss gel through a stencil. The same stencil (from Imagination Crafts) has been used for the envelope. I stamped the boy with Memento ink on a Letraset marker pad and coloured with Promarkers. The sentiment was stamped straight on the background. I used Stazon to be sure it would manage the gloss gel and added some accents with a white Sharpie. Looking from the front the gel barely shows, but at an angle it gives a nice glossy star crescent!
