I’ve never considered myself an artist by any means, but I’ll tell you what …these Gelatos from Faber-Castell have be thinking I’m Georgia O’Keefe up in here!

I made this card a few weeks ago and wasn’t sure when I would post it, but considering this weekend’s 20% off sale that’s going on at Ellen Hutson, I think now is the time!

If ever you wanted some Gelatos, now is the time…and if your budget allows I would recommend the gift set that includes all 32 colors. Otherwise, I’d go for a few gelatos in the same color family so you can create pretty ombres and gradients.

Creating this floral pattern is very simple:

{1} Select two shades in the same color family. In this case, I used red and pink. Draw semi circles in each color as shown.

{2} Use a water color brush or water pen (which in included with the gift set) to blend the two colors. By adding a lighter color, you’re able to create a somewhat realistic looking flower without too much difficulty.

{3} Two swipes of a green gelato create leaves and finish of your flower. EASY!

  1. Love them! Will we be able to get them in the UK, if so when? If they are released over here will they be launched under the same name?

    1. Hi Liz! I am not entirely sure about the availability of this product in the UK. Since Faber-Castell is a worldwide company, I would imagine that you could get them there without a problem! Somewhere like the craft section at BHV in London might carry them.
