Good Friends are like Stars ....

If you haven't tried a gel press yet, you're missing out!! I had heard of them but 
knew NOTHING about them. I think I "thought" you had to have some piece
of machinery to use them and I finally watched some you tube videos 
and decided to get this one at Hobby Lobby last week. It's alot of fun and
for the background of this card, I used my Tim Holtz Oxide inks
and stamped them directly onto the gel piece. Then I squirted water
and voila, I got this awesome background!! I did not use the brayer
in the pic but I did dig out my brayer and used it on a card
I made last week. I love this color combo too!!
