One Card Three Ways

Hello, Leonie here today.

I know it's getting closer to Christmas and we're seeing some fabulous Christmas craft ideas here on the Design Memory Craft blog but before I get busy creating all things Christmas I have a few birthdays that all occur around this time of the year.  In a bid to stay organised and knowing that next month is always a busy time I  created some quick yet effective cards.  I thought why not create the same card but use slightly different techniques to give each card it's own individual touch?   

So today I'd like to show you just how versatile Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products can be.   I’ve created one card design using three different yet quite simple techniques.   As you can see the results are quite different but equally effective and pretty.  I put together a collage step by step for each card to show you just how simple it was to create these cards.

Here's the first card I made using Gelatos® and a dry blending technique.

I first embossed some watercolor paper and then colored the raised areas with Gelatos® (all the particular colors are listed below) and blended them.  This blending tool with the rubber nib is quite a handy tool for dry blending Gelatos.  Of course if you don’t mind getting a little dirty you can just blend the colors with your fingers!

Here's the step by step.

The second card has a subtle watercolor appearance, which I think may be my favourite.  Although I do like the dry blended one! It's always hard to choose a favourtite!

With this card I used the same color Gelatos® as in the first one.   I scribbled straight onto the embossing folder and spritzed it with water before inserting the watercolor paper and putting it through the die cutting machine.  You can see the final result below.

Finally on the third card I used Stampers Big Brush Pens.

Here's the step by step used to create the card with Stampers Big Brush Pens.  Using a similar technique to the card above I drew directly onto the embossing folder.  However by drawing into the grooves of the image it creates the opposite effect.  I then inserted some watercolor paper and ran it through the die cutting machine.

Each card was then stamped with a sentiment using the Black 199*** Stampers Big Brush Pen.

And some doodling with a medium point PITT® Artist Pen before I backed each image onto black card and embellished with flowers and twine.

So there you have it one card three different ways.  An easy way to create some cards in hurry and yet still give them there own individual flair. 

Cheers,

Leonie Neal-Dawson.
