Stampendous & Faber-Castell Together This Week

6a0134896f7ad2970c01a5117af1c8970c-pi
 
This week Stampendous and Faber-Castell have joined up to make some wonderful projects for you. 
Blog Hoppers will have an opportunity to comment through March 9th, 3 winners will be chosen March 10th so be sure to leave comments for the designers!
 

 
Today I'm sharing a card using the Artist Elements stamp from Stampendous, stamped on a background made with Gelatos using 3 different techniques.  Here is how it was done...
 
1.  Apply Gelatos from the 50's Diner set randomly to watercolor paper, spritz with water and rub with your fingers (1st technique).  Let dry.
 
2.  Place stencil from the Wired Grillager set over your paper.
 
3.  Rub Blood Orange and Squid Ink on your craft mat, pick it up with a sponge and rub over the stencil in select areas (2nd technique).
4.  Rub Blueberry Gelato Double Scoop (3rd technique) directly on the mesh stamp from the Wired Grillager set, spritz with water and stamp on paper, spritz again and stamp a second time.
5.  Stamp Artists Elements with Tuxedo Memento, let dry and apply Copper and Ice Blue Micro Glitter on the tips of the brushes using Zig 2 Way Glue.
6.  Tear the bottom of the image and add Ice Blue, layer onto black, tear bottom and add Copper.
7.  Mount to card.
 
Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another card using Stampendous and Faber-Castell and another chance to win!

I am enjoying how you added several different stamped images to it. The "paint" is my favorite part, though. You are a genius.
