Default TLC135 - Bye Bye Summer

The calendar says that summer is officially over (regardless of the weather!)...so let's say bye bye to summer with a technique that often invokes a beach/ocean/pool theme....GEL CARDS!

Here is the tutorial from our resources forum:
Gel Cards

There is a special gallery set up for Gel Cards under Technique Spotlight. Please upload your card there, and use the keyword TLC135.

For your inspiration:
Gel Card Gallery


Have fun!

Hmmm... I might have to do some scrounging, but I don't think I have gel. Good challenge though!

I would think that any clear or mostly clear gel would work....give the aloe vera gel a try!

I've never done one of these. Don't know if there's any gel in the house or any tiny zip bags. I'll have to check. Thanks, Beth.

Fun challenge, Beth - I haven't done one of these in ages! This is a dollar stamp I got while on our PA SCS gathering on Saturday. I love it!

WOW!!! Tried this technique for the first time only a few weeks ago and still have some of my "home-made" gel in the fridge!!! Will have a go in the morning (it's night time here in Oz at the moment!!!). And, we're heading towards our summer - lovely spring weather we're having here right now!!! Thanks for the challenge Beth!!!

I don't have any gel in the house either. I can't wait to see the entries though. This will give me time to catch up on the weekend challenges I missed.

No gel here either, but I'll see what I can do tonight when I get home. Maybe like Beate, I can finish weekend challenges. Thanks for the neat challenge Beth.
