Gel water card with By the Tide

 Hello Stamp and Happy Birthday Mick!
   Yes today it's my Masculine Monday and like I said yesterday I switch my video day from Tuesday to Today for this week cause I wanted to share this fun technique the water gel card. This technique was one of the first if not the first technique that I learn when I join Stampin'Up! back in 2002. When I got back from fishing with the boys Saturday I got busy to make this card. The boy got their biggest trout and thought it would be the perfect card for Mick birthday today. I had done another one but I will save it for Brett Birthday next week :) Okay here what I use for this fun card and again to view the video visit my blog at
  • Stamp set By the Tide page 77, Sketched Birthday page 13
  • framelites oval collection #129381
  • Magnetic platform #130658
  • zip bag 4-1/2 by 3
  • Hair gel (the cheap one work the best)
  • Sticky Strip #104294
  • Dimensionals #104430
  • Card stock White and Marina Mist 
  • Aqua Painter 103954
That is about all of the supplies plus the ink. The top card is using the blue gel and the bottom one is the clear gel either one work great. 

 See the bubbles in this window to much fun to look at....

 Here you can see the window when when you open the card fun fun.

Here the boys...Brett and Mick with the big 19" trout the catch of the day! Mick is turning 17 this year it's so hard to believe that he will be a senior this year and then no more kids at home what a weird feeling but at the same time I feel so bless to have 2 great kids. So a Happy Birthday to YOU Mick Love Mom!
