Faber-Castell Showcase; Day 1

July 14, 2011

We have teamed with Faber-Castell to bring an assortment of Penny Black stamped projects using Faber-Castell coloring products to you! I hope you enjoy what the Designers have created for this special feature.

Mix & Match” from Faber-Castell makes designing with color simple. Choose a color set that inspires you. Choose a medium. Mix & Match as you create. Color coordinated palettes give you the freedom to design your project knowing the colors will work beautifully together. Perfect for all your design, memory and craft projects.

Penny Black Designer, Kathy Racoosin created a pair of butterfly cards using canvas as her backdrop. Kathy applied Gelatos directly to the rubber and stamped the images onto canvas. The butterflied were colored using Pastel Pencils.

Penny Black Designer, Elizabeth Allan used our “Cheerful” stamp and Gelatos as well as Faber-Castell’s Stamper’s Big Brush Pens for her bouquet of flowers. She stamped the flower image multiple times and the leaves are stacked on florist wire to create a year-round bouquet. Elizabeth blended the Gelatos over the stamped images on heavy cardstock and the reverse sides are colored in black for a finished appearance. You can visit Elizabeth’s Blog for complete instructions and stepped-out photographs.

Designer, Cathy Andronicou also worked with Faber-Castel Gelatos and created a stunning, vibrant shaped card. You can view details of Cathy’s project at her Blog.

We’re back tomorrow with more…
