My first gel card

When Just Beachy arrived I wanted to create something a little different so went searching for ideas and found this great tutorial for Gel Cards on SCS so had to give it a go. It’s quick, easy & gives the illusion that the fish is in water and makes for a great for a male card! I have played around with it since taking this original photo by adding 1/4″ circle punchies in Not Quite Navy along the ribbon and when I demonatrated the card at a workshop on Saturday I got the girls to stamp the fish image in Not Quite Navy to make the fish stand out more and I have to admit the end result was much better! Thanks for taking the time to take a peek!
