Mix & Match Tags

Jill40Hi everyone! Jill Foster here and today I’m mixing and matching three Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® mediums to create a set of three tags.


I began by stamping my images (Penny Black) using the Dark Chrome Yellow 109 and Nougat 178 Stamper’s Big Brush Pens.  Next I colored the images using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils (147, 125, 156, 111, 176, 117, 168) blending with water and a small paintbrush.


Once dry, I added additional shading using Art GRIP® Color Pencils (125, 167, 109, 154, 152, 176, 158, 118).


Finally, I created splatters by coloring with Stamper’s Big Brush Pens (Nougat 178, Magenta 133, Cobalt Blue 143, Pink Madder Lake 129) onto my acrylic block, adding water, and flicking the ink onto the tags using a paint brush.


Each step adds a subtle change, but leads to a fun finished product!  I added ribbons (Ribbon’s Unlimited), twine (May Arts), self-adhesive pearls, and Candi to embellish my tags.

What mediums do you like to Mix and Match and layer?

Hugs and Happy Stamping, Jill

LOVE the images and colouring - WOW!!!
So far I only have Gelatos in my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft stash and have only recently used them with Gesso, so I'm working on building up my collection so that I can Mix and Match too :)
