I can't tell if I put too much gel in the bag or not---it's puffy, should it be puffy?
My problem came when I closed the bag---I had this HUGE air bubble. As a matter of fact every time I opened and closed the bag I had this HUGE bubble, so I tried just opening the corner and smooshing the bag to get the air bubble out only when I smooshed, the gel went popping out the little hole too and onto my keyboard!! Yuck!! Now my space bar is sticky!!
I put blue beads in the bag with the gel (ya know---for bubbles) only now I can't tell if there too many of those too. Do you think the fish is too hard to see behind the gel and the beads? I stamped seaweed on the image too, but I don't think that shows very well either.
LOL, I am so not gellin'!!!

I loved it all: the little fish that looks like he is simply swimming by to investigate this window into our world, the beads in the gel, the sea weed, and the choice of designer paper. I can hardly wait to try this technique. Bravo!

The one time I've done a gel card at a workshop, all the attendees decided that 'less is more' when it comes to the gel...just putting a teeny bit and then letting it squish around seemed to work well for us. So maybe try that and good luck getting hair gel off your space bar!

This is so totally CUTE!! I think it looks great.
Tip: Using less gel works better. No need to fluff up the bag.
Try buying the gel that's light blue. The one I got is by
LA Looks and was only $1.94 at Wal-Mart. I hope this
helps and your card really does look great!

Very cute...like the others....less is more with the gel. Love the beads added to it...looks great the way it is...just easier to work with when there is less gel. I think I have this fish!! Thanks for the reminder!
