Faber-Castell Collaboration with Stampendous!


Greetings! This week, the Stampendous team gets to play with lots of wonderful Faber-Castell products. We are showcasing the Art Grip Aquarelles Watercolor Pencils. PITT pens and Pastel Pencils, and our very special guest Nathalie Kalbach will be sharing projects with Gelatos. We are really "Bloging in Color" this week! In addition, it's Dreamweaver Thursday, so you are going to see some wonderful stenciled projects today! 

I started off with the Chunky Art Tools stencil, watercolor paper, and the "S" tipped black PITT pen and I drew in all of the tools. Then, keeping my stencil taped in place, I started to play with the Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Man, I love these pencils! The colors are beautiful, they color up great, and when you add the water....pure magic! Love them! 

By leaving my stencil in place, it kept me from coloring outside the lines. Which, is not something I usually mind, but I wanted to keep this image nice and clean. The only 2 spots that I didn't use the Aquarelles, was the tip of the brush (I used PITT pens), and the tip of the pencil (I used PITT Pastel Pencils). After everything was colored, I removed the stencil, and used the included brush that comes with the watercolor pencils (great brush, by the way...and I love that it comes with the pencils!) to start painting. A little water goes a long way, and again, the pencils blend beautifully. I went for a few different textures and finishes on the chunky tools. You can really do so much with these pencils. 

Then I used the appropriate art tools to add the drawn/painted lines. I added the little "Make Art" from the "Charmed Art" Stampendous set. I rounded the corners, and added a mat of purple cardstock. I then decided it was time to stop. I was planning on making a card, but I decided that I am just going to frame it and hang it in my craft room instead. Because really, no matter what mediums I use, I love to just make art! Please be sure to visit the lovely ladies listed below. You are sure to love their creations. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll have another post for this fantastic collaboration tomorrow. Have an inspiring day!

this is a fun piece.
Was a good idea to leave the stencil on while coloring.
I'm not good at staying in the lines so I'll have to remember that.
thanks for sharing a cute card.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
