Then, pop over to the Faber-Castell Blog by clicking HERE and leave a comment for a chance to win a Designing With Gelatos Kit too!
 
We have a full week of amazing inspiration to share with you, so let's get started!

Today's participating designers are:
I used a few different Faber-Castell products on my card today.  I am not an expert at all when it comes to mixed media items.  But what I can say, is that Faber-Castell makes it so easy and fun to use their products.


Here are some items that I used:
Faber-Castell Gelatos
Faber-Castell Gel Medium
Faber-Castell PITT pen
Gina K Designs Cardstock


 I started by, getting out a few Gelatos along with Gel Medium.


I rubbed the Gelatos onto a paper plate, then mixed in the Gel Medium to create a paint. I then painted on the color onto my white cardstock.  I set it aside to dry.


Once the Gelato/Gel Medium was dry, using the PITT pen, I was able to add ink to my stamp, and stamp my sentiment.


Quick, simple and so easy!!

Your card may be simple, but.....it works. I like how you used yellow cardstock instead of a pink tone. It makes the card pop. Love the stamp, too. And of course, the bling. I'm a bling girl so I like how you added just enough of a touch of bling. Thanks for sharing.

For a card that is supposed to feature the boldness of the Gelato colors, I find this example rather bland.
