JustRite and Faber-Castell Mixed Media Blog Hop! Day 2

Welcome to the JustRite® Papercraft and Faber-Castell® Mixed Media Blog Hop - Day 2. Both design teams created inspiring projects so visit each blog for full detailed instructions. Oh, did I mention PRIZES?! Details at the bottom of this post ;)


Blog Hop(ブログ ホップ):ぴょんと飛び跳ねてあちこちのブログを回る、という企画です。このブログホップに参加している、JustRite Papercraft DT & Faber-Castell DTのブログをホップして、賞品を当てて下さいね!下の写真を参照してください。 なるべく多くのブログにコメントを残した方が当たる確率が上がります!是非全部のブログに書き込みしてくださいね。16か所のリンクは下記のとおりです。応募期間は、3月22日(アメリカ東部時間24:00)までです。

For the Blog Hop, I created a card using two products from Faber-Castell: GRIP WaterColor EcoPencils and Gelatos® Color 4ct - Yellow (Colors: Butter Cream, Lemon, Mango and Tangerine). From JustRite Papercraft, I used Antique Damask Background Stamp and Floral Vintage Labels Two Stamp Set.

Faber-Castellの水彩色鉛筆や、ジェラトスを使ってカードを作りました。とても楽しいかったです!是非試して下さいね。


I stamped the flower image three times with StazOn Jet Black ink. Then I fussy cut each flower (one entire image, one medium size and one small) to create layers.


Next color each cut layer with Faber-Castell's WaterColor Pencils. Then use a water brush to blend and soften the colors. I used 3D Foam Squares to make each layer dimensional and added Flower Soft Lavender texture in the center. Set aside to dry.




For the background, I stamped Antique Damask Background Stamp with VersaMark ink and loaded on Detailed White Embossing Powder and heat set the entire image.


I love the ombre look (graduation of color - shading of same color tones from dark to light) so when I heard about the blog hop, it was the perfect technique to try. The set had all the colors to make that easy! I added each color in quarters on the background stamp...


Then I used my mini mister and lightly sprayed over the area. Taking the paper towel, I buffed a little. The coloring was a little lighter than I liked so I added more Gelato and rubbed in with my finger for the desired look. Don't be afraid to add on or take off. It's a forgiving medium to use!


Next I cut/embossed with A2 Matting Basics A die #7 (the smallest size being #1)...


Then I cut a strip of 5 x 1⅛" purple patterned paper and cut a tail at the end. I didn't like the white edges so I penciled in with purple WaterColor EcoPencil and then blended with the water brush.


Using the sentiment from Floral Vintage Labels Two, I stamped first and then cut/embossed with Labels Four die #2 over the image. Assemble as shown in picture...
