Stampendous and Faber Castell Design Memory Craft...


This week our team will be showcasing the Art Grip Aquarelles Watercolor Pencils, the PITT Pastel Pencils, and our very special guest Nathalie Kalbach will be featuring the Gelatos! There will be guest-starring roles by the PITT Artist Pens for doodling and drawing!
Wait until you see the colorful inspiration we have for you this week! We’ll be Blogging in Color!


Directions:
  1. I created the background by scribbling Aquarelles in a variety of blues and purples on white cardstock. 
  2. Next I added a wash of water to blend the colors a bit. 
  3. When it was dry, I added a bit of thinned down Whipped Spackle with a embossing knife.
  4. Using a piece of dry wall mesh as a stencil, add a bit of black ink randomly. 
  5. Stamp the sentiment in StazOn.
  6. Stamp the feather image twice in Versamark and emboss with white.   


Supplies Used:



Winners must have a U.S. mailing address (official rules here!)
