Design * Memory * Craft project & GIVEAWAY!


I'm So excited to show you all something NEW and FUN today!
I have been playing with the new Design Memory Craft products, the Mixed Media Sampler sets and Color Gelatos...ummm...and the Gelatos look like LIP GLOSS, so they are basically perfect ;)

The Mixed Media Sampler sets are fabulous sets of coordinating coloring mediums and the Gelatos are these creamy sticks of color that you can blend and stamp with and water color with, very COOL!

I have made one card so far using them.  I used the Big Brush Pen and the Gelatos on this card:

 
To be exact, I used all 5 of the Gelatos on this card!
I used the 4 colors in the Gelatos and Clear Stamp kit and the metallic
Gelato from the Mixed Media kit.
I colored the butterfly with the 4 Gelatos from the Red set
and smudged them around with a sponge!
Then I put some of the metallic Gelato onto another sponge
and sponged the embossed dots on the background.
If you could see them in person you'd see how shimmery it looks!
I used the Big Brush Pen to color directly onto my stamp for the sentiment.

Very FUN and EASY!

Here is a little bit about these products from the company:

Mix & Match from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft 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.

Mixed Media Sampler Sets in Red, Yellow, Blue and Green encourage you to spread your creative wings and experiment with mixing mediums!  Each set includes a Stamper's Big Brush, Gelato Metallic Stick, Pastel Pencil and Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor pencil.  Experiment with mixing colors and mediums or layer different mediums to create depth and details.  Or try using your rubber stamps with the different mediums to see which effects you like the most. 

Color Gelatos are creamy sticks infused with brilliant color.  The color slides easily onto papers and can then be dissolved with water to create watercolor effects, or left to dry for vibrant bursts of color.  Try stamping with the Color Gelatos, or apply a field of color and use a stamp to remove the color.  Color Gelatos work wonderfully on flocked papers and embellishments too!  Color Gelatos are acid-free and odorless.

Do you want to WIN BOTH of these products???
Faber-Castell is giving away both of these products
to 2 winners right here from my blog!

LUCKY DUCKS!

Just leave me a comment saying you want to win!
and if you share it on Facebook or Twitter or your own blog,
that will give you 2 entries, just come back and say so!
Easy, right?
and be sure to include your email address so we can contact you!

Winner will be chosen Wednesday at 9:00am EST and posted that morning!

I'll be back later this week with another project using these FUN products!


HAVE A GREAT DAY!
