As the summer sun begins to rise and the temps heat up, what better way to beat the heat than crafting! Join us all this week for a special collaboration with Penny Black. We're sharing fun projects here on our blog using Penny Black stamps AND you'll find projects from the Penny Black designers on their blog featuring our Paper Crafter Crayons and Double Scoop Gelatos. We want you to join in the fun, too, so don't miss the giveaway details at the end of this post.
Jen Matott here for Day 4 in our Blog Hop! I have a fun project that I did using many of our Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.
Using this gorgeous Penny Black Poppy Stamp, I created a background of Gelatos colors in Mango, Margarita Mix, and Watermelon (from the Designer Tropical set) by applying them dry to a thick mixed media paper from Marco's Paper.
I used my heat gun to warm up the paper (it's 100% cotton) on a heat resistant surface. While the heat gun is concetrated on one area of the poppy, I colored with the Paper Crafter's Crayons. I used a variety of reds and oranges layered while heating. The colors are so vibrant and intensify when melted!
Just using my heat gun and some of the fun Paper Crafter's Crayons, I created a vibrant, summery piece of artwork! What can you do with the crayons?
