And here is what I made using products from both Faber-Castell and myStamp BOX! I was in a great need of two birthday cards for yesterday. So I grabbed this wonderful Mixed Media yellow set and started creating! As what's in the package is coordinated it was easy peasy!
The first birthday card was for our grand-mother. As you can imagine she is an elderly lady so I wanted a classic card with a touch of elegance. First, I stamped and heat embossed some images from mSB (Abundant Blossoms set), then applied some golden Gelato, smearing it over the panel. Since it covers everything, I wiped out the excess from embossed areas with a baby wipe.
Then, I've added some golden accents with the Metallic Pen inside the flowers. For the background I've applied the same Metallic Pen DIRECTLY to a flower stamp and stamped on the card. It stamps perfectly, even without spraying with water!
My second card was for a cousin, someone young and energetic. So I wanted a card with modern elements. I took a piece of a printed paper and stamped some butterflies over it with ink coming from the Big Brush Pen that I applied directly to the stamp. This pen is incredible! And it's not simply yellow, it's Dark Naples ochre! :)
Here also, a simple application of ink on the stamp is enough for a perfectly stamped image. It gives a slightly watecolor look so it's so cool! The butterfly comes from one of my favorite sets, Colorful Companions. Sentiment on this card, as well as on the first one, is from Everyday Lines set.
I liked this technique so much that I continued stamping butterflies to make some simple, smaller cards.
Don't know for whom these might be but I'll be ready! (Just in case you've wondered, this last sentiment is from another versatile set, Mention it!)
