Gelatos have been used on the left and Portfolio Pastels on the right on the first four photos.
However, I did use different types of paper for each one.
For some reason I only picked up 2 greens in the Gelatos whilst I was on holiday, hence the different colour combos.
Each acts differently on the different papers, but I think both products blend really well.
I used black versafine ink to stamp the images.
Added some pen work to the main image and the row of flowers along with some gems.
Again I stamped in black versafine ink. The Dina Wakley images on the water colour card didn't stamp that well. I used my black smudgy pencil to the circles on the butterfly background which was the Portfolio Pastels.
I tried to use the same smudgy black pencil on the right of these two which used the Gelatos and it wouldn't write!!!
In my opinion, and it is only my opinion, I have no preference over the two products, one is better for one thing than the other and visa versa, but the type paper/card has a lot to do with how they perform too!! And some colours tend to blend better than others.
All I've played with so far is backgrounds, still got loads more stuff to try out from the techniques book that came with one of the sets!!
