Today I’m making a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge, which is to use Sentiments. I wanted to use the Faber-Castell Metallic pencils on black card stock, so that the metallic will show up better. I went ahead and stamped one of the sentiments from the Lawn Fawn’s Chitchat stamp set and embossed it using white embossing powder. I then colored in the speech bubble randomly using 4 of the metallic pencils. I used Gold, Silver, Pink, and Blue. I think the metallic shows up really nicely on Black card stock. These pencils are not water-soluble like the Derwent metallic pencils. I believe these are wax based. These are student grade pencils and I think they don’t have as much metallic as the Derwent but it’s ok for techniques like this. No blending but just coloring in the image. I hope you enjoyed this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspiration and ideas. Thanks again 🙂
Today I’m sharing this journal page I made using one of the Prima stamp set that I had. I’ve been wanting to use her for a while. I also used Brusho crystal watercolor powder to color her hair. I wanted the bloom it creates when, it’s sprayed wit water. I kind of over did it I think, so at the end, it looks a little blurry to me. I also wanted to use the vintage bags that Tupelo Designs LLC, packages their order in. It’s a gorgeous vintage bag, which I thought it was perfect in the background. I’ve added some Double Scoop Gelatos and blended it with my finger. I also used some copper and gold sprays I had in my stash. You can view the video for the complete process of this page. It didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to, but I think it’s okay. After all, I’m still learning and I had a lot of fun making this page. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks again. I tried my best to put the supply list below but some supplies are missing…sorry.
