Faber-Castell, Day 3

This card was created using the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush Markers, PITT Artist Pens, and Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I began by coloring directly on the large damask background stamp with the Stampers Big Brush Markers. I "huffed" on the stamp and then stamped onto white cardstock. I then used the fine tip of the PITT Artist Pens to add shading to the background image by coloring directly on the paper. Finally, I used a light wash of yellow paint from the watercolor pencils over the stamped image. Because both the Stampers Big Brush Markers and PITT Artist Pens are india ink, they are completely waterproof once dry. Background Stamp by Purple Onion Designs, Sentiment by Hero Arts

Thanks again for peeking! Hope your week is going well. :)

Awesome! Saw your card on Purple Onion. I thought I recognized the background stamp, but then I thought, no, that must be printed paper. It's gorgeous!

Hi Jill!

I was looking for inspirations or tutorials on how to use Faber-Castell grip markers that I recently purchased and I stumbled upon your blog. What a nice site! I love the card you made? It's gorgeous. I wonder how you were able to achieve it. Thanks for sharing!

Hugs,
