Give Away time from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft!

happy Friday!


The folks over at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft have generously offered up a prize pack for me to giveaway!

If you haven't had a chance to use their awesome Gelatos®, this is a great giveaway for you!  My card today focuses on Gelatos®!



I started with Silver Ice, Metallic Mint, & Raspberry.  Just scribble onto your card stock alternating colors.

Dampen a paper towel, (or use a baby wipe, I'm all out at the moment) and work the colors together.

The silver got blended out a bit too much, so I went back and added color until I achieved the look I was going for.

My background all blended and ready to use.
You can also ink your stamps with Gelatos®.  Run your Gelato over the stamp, and lightly mist.

Here I didn't like the last word not being so clear-

So, I colored over with the coordinating Stampers Big Brush Marker in Cobalt Green and stamped it back over my sentiment again.

the prize includes the following- The Designing with Gelatos Kit $24.95, Mini Journal Boards $4.95, Art GRIP Aquarelles in Neutral $12.95, the Gelatos Tool Set $11.95 and the Stamper's Big White Pen $6.25.
I'll leave this open until Monday night, and post a winner Tuesday! just leave a comment about your favorite Faber Castell product or if you have never tried them!

enjoy!!
