Today the JustRite Design Team and the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Design Team have a fabulous blog hop planned for you! Be sure to visit each blog for full detailed instructions on how they created there mixed media projects.
Can I just say that I am in love with Faber-Castell Gelatos. I have been playing with them all month and just love how rich, smooth and creamy they are. To see additional cards that I have created using them - scroll down to my last two blog posts using them too.
For my project today I wanted to show you how to make a stunning card in just a matter of minutes. Today I am playing with Metallic Gelatos!
First I stamped in versamark and embossed in white Justrite's March Release set Grand Damask Background Stamp.
Then I applied my Gelato Colors - Metallic Mint and Metallic Blueberries to my image. Just color with the gelatos and then rub in the color with finger. This is super fast and fun. Next I spritzed the paper with water and using a paper towel remove any excess color from my embossed area (this gives it an even softer feel). Now you can add more color in certain areas to make your embossed image really pop.
For my Cameo Image I stamped and embossed in white only the frame. Then I used the Silver Ice Metallic gelato to rub over the white embossed frame. Next I went back and added in hints of Metallic Mint to the outside area of the ornate frame. In the interior of the frame I added both Metallic Mint and Metallic Blueberry. Once I got the feel I wanted in the interior of the frame I stamped my cameo using with Memento Danube Blue.
Next I die cut and embossed my cameo image with Spellbinders Stately Circles. Then I colored the outside rim with Metallic Blueberry and rubbed the color around with my fingers. I die cut the Grand Damask Background Stamp image with die #4 from the 5 x 7 Matting Basics A set which fits perfectly inside the largest die in the 5 x 7 Detailed Scallop Die.
