Video : Gelato Background by Request!

Hiya, today I’m back by request as I was asked ‘how’ I created this Gelato background here.  It was heaps of fun to do and not ‘too messy’ for my precious hands.  Not sure how it happened but the front panel ended up taking over, although I do still like that the texture and colour that shows around the edge.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

I wanted to make a card for my parents 50th wedding anniversary and I knew my mother would adore this Summer Love image from Penny Black, therefore the happy couple have my Mum’s red hair and my Dad’s dark brown…   although it hasn’t been that for a long time lol.   They are both amazing people and I am so lucky to have them in my life, BIG hugs and congrats to you both x.
