Hello everyone! I'm Smitha and I am excited to be typing up my first guest post here!
Hi friends! It's Lisa here with you with a simple and fun card for you today using Gelatos®, Textural Accents, the Gelatos® Tool Set, a large area stencil, and some fun embellishments.
If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
This month's challenge is to create something you don't usually create. It could be style, colors, theme, products, anything you don't create often.
For me, it's Steampunk. I like the look but don't try doing it myself. Here's my take:
In my project, I used -
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso
Others: stencil, dress pattern, deli paper, paper towel, stamp
Here are some close-ups of my page:
Instead of doing a photo tutorial, I did a video this month to show you the techniques. I hope you enjoy!
Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Friday, 7/18 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
The prizes for this challenge are: One set of Metallic PITT Artist pens 3 ct in your choice of classic or color
Don't forget to check back on Monday, 7/21 to see if YOU won!
Good luck to all!

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy 4th of July! It's Teresa here, and I have some cards to share with you today that I made using PITT® Pastel Pencils. Here they are:
I was really pleased with the 'fine art' finish to these stamped images. Believe me when I say this was easy to achieve - so easy it's almost cheating! These pencils are intensely pigmented, and look just fabulous on black cardstock. Here's how I achieved the look:
Stamp the image using a light coloured pigment ink.
Choose two or three colours, keeping in mind that when they are blended they will appear a little less intense. Colour parts of the image with the darkest pencil.
Add some lighter colour. Streaks are appropriate for this image as the shell itself has striations on it.
Using a blending stump, blend the colours. Depending on the image, lines or small circles may work best.
When you've blended the image to your liking, add a few highlights with the white pencil and spray with a matt fixative. The fixative will stop the pastel pencil from rubbing off.
Thanks for stopping by, and I do hope you give the PITT® Pastel Pencils a go next time you need a softly shaded image.
