Materials:

  • Gelatos® (bubblegum, mango, metallic mint, gold champagne, black licorice)
  • Glaze
  • Die-cuts/dies/stencils (Sizzix Chevron Alterations Die by Tim Holtz, Lawn Fawn Thanks Scripty Die, Studio Calico Sunbrust Mask)
  • Paint Brush/Foam Brush
  • Collapsible Water Cup
  • Stamper's Artist Pen in White
  • DCWV Adhesive Cork Sheets
  • 12" x 12" Cork Tile
  • White Cardstock
  • Washi Tape

1. Die-cut cork.

TiffCork5

2. Color cork pieces with Gelatos of choice.

TiffCork7

3. Blend with Glaze. This will also help seal the color into the cork without adding water while adding a nice shine to the finished piece!

TiffCork6

4. Color a large piece of cork with Gelatos using an ombre/gradient effect. Blend with damp foam brush! There's no need to add Glaze to this as the water will set the Gelatos color into the cork.

TiffCork8

5. You can apply the same ideas to a large piece of cork tile! Use the Stamper's Artist Pen in White to trace a design, then color with Gelatos of choice!

TiffCork9

6. Just like with the smaller die-cut pieces, blend the Gelatos color with Glaze to seal the color in! 

TiffCork3

Once dry, you can hang it on your office wall using some double-sided tape & you're ready to hang small reminders & mementos!

PITT® Pastel Pencil Cards

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:

 Step 1
Stamp the image using a light coloured pigment ink. 

Step 2
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.


Step 3
Add some lighter colour. Streaks are appropriate for this image as the shell itself has striations on it.

Step 4
Using a blending stump, blend the colours. Depending on the image, lines or small circles may work best.


Step 5
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.

Products used:
PITT® Pastel Pencils
Darkroom Door stamps: Seashells, Full Bloom Vol 1
Dina Wakley stamps: Scribbly Birds
Patterned paper: KaiserCraft
