Getting Gelly - Tiddly Inks Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
  This week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog we are challenging you to create a water themed card and would love it if you made a gel card!! There are a number of links to tutorials on the challenge blog if you have no idea what I'm talking about =).  I did add a tiny bit of a gel card here and even snuck in a tiny shell! 
 The image is called Going Swimming and there is also a little girl Going Swimming!  I used hand sanitizer because that's the only gel I had - I added some sparkles and Distress Ink to make the water look green and oceany! 
Please stop by the Tiddly Inks store and see the new images and then head over and join our Watery Challenge!

  15. Shoot, I never thought of sanitizer. We only had green hair gel and it was too bright, so I ran out and bought a new bottle of blue just for this. Needless to say we have a year supply of gel now.

    Love this card. The tiny window is so perfect, I wish I had of thought of that too. Great paper too and the sea shells are adorable.
