Got any hair gel ??

Hi Everybody,


Over on my YouTube Channel today is a fun card using some hair gel to create an underwater scene and it is sure to delight children.

This is the Hair Gel Pocket Card  and I have used the cheapest tube of hair gel that I could find.

I specifically bought the one with bubbles in it as this will help with the effect.

Once you have watched the video you will understand what I mean when I tell you that the gel settles towards the bottom of the pocket once the card is stood up so be sure not to overfill it.

And seal it carefully so that the gel doesn't escape when you have finished.

The stamp and die set  that I have used is Make A Splash  from Clearly Besotted ... and they are a UK company with wonderful items for you to buy

The card is from AnnaMarie Design and I have used Spellbinders 5x7 Matting Basics  to create the card and frame.   Make sure that the pocket you use will fit inside the frame work  you create.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. Hi Christina
    Love today's card with the fishes, also loved yesterday's card as well. Internet playing up I'm afraid so I'm having problems getting in every day.

  16. Oh, Christina...you said the magic words on the video...'the ink blending must be blotchy'...my blending is ALWAYS blotchy so perhaps I've finally found the right kind of card to make lol.
    The dolphins are so cute and have gone right on my wish list...hopefully they won't go out of stock before I place my order next week lol. Thanks for the video, it's shown us all just how easy it is to make this brilliant card :)

  26. Very cute card. I have seen this done before but like how you put yours together better it looks more like the water. Enjoyed your video.I did one but just a fish bowl did not look as nice.
