Full Bloom Chalkboard by Tonya Gibbs

ChalkboardTeaser2_800

 

Hi everyone,  I'm super excited to bring  you today's project. I've created this Chalkboard Art that would make an awesome gift for someone.   This project is one of those that started out being one thing and ended up being something totally different.  I started out wanting to make watercolor card gift sets to share with friends. But when I finished the Art Panel it was just too beautiful to turn into a card. It needed to be displayed on a wall!

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.

A Little Fun in the Sun with Terri

DSC_0019

Aaaah!  Summer is here.  In my house that means sunshine, time at the pool, friends, and fun!  I thought I would play with my "stuff"  while watching the kids have some fun in the sun.  I made a fun little card that I can send off to the grandparents.

Quick and easy.  Let me show you how.  I began with a card made from Bazzill smooth white cardstock.  Using the roll of tape on the desk I traced a circle in the center of the front of the card.  Carefully I painted the inside of the circle with Gesso.  Once dry, I sketched a sandcastle in the center.

Rainbow card using PITT® Pastel Pencils

2014-06-06-16.36.09

Hi everyone! I'm Susanne from Germany and on the guest Design Team this summer. This is so exciting for me!!! It's my first post today and I'd like to show you a rainbow flower card! I'm a fan of bright and happy colors. On the video below you can see how the background is created. I used VersaMark ink and some of the Faber-Castell PITT® Pastel Pencils.

 

After the background is finished I'm going to embellish my card and add a sentiment. For the sentiment I used some of the brand new Chalk Board Paint. I coverd my cardstock twice before I stamped on it with my white pigment ink pad. I decided to cut it into a banner because I wanted a loose look on the heavy background.
