Today's inspiration site Eskayel has all sorts of great pieces for cool background ideas. I used this wallpaper as my first inspiration. I have only 2 Gelatos so far, black and white. I scribbled onto my watercolor paper, wet them, added some more wet Gelato, dripped and used my wet brush to direct the ink around the page. After my black was as I liked it, I added more white Gelato accents and drips. I framed in black and added the accent eyelet "leather" piece. I embossed my sentiment in pewter to match with the eyelets and sponged a bit of black around to add definition to the words.

I don't even know what a gelato is! But whatever they are, you've done something wonderful with them - incredibly striking and because my favorite kind of cards are ones with Scripture this really appeals to me - fantastic verse!
