Coloring Cork with Gelatos AND Freebie Friday!

TiffCork1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with a photo tutorial for ya! Lately, I've been all about adhesive cork from DCWV & decided to try my hand at creating a card with it!

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.

2. Color cork pieces with Gelatos of choice.

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!

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.

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!

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

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

Round Robin Journal with Jen Matott (AND Ustream winner)

P1010630

Have you ever participated in a traveling/ Round Robin swap before?  I used to years ago while active on Scrapbook.com, but haven't in a loooong time.  When a friend started a journal Round Robin swap, I was in!  We chose our own topic and journal and then we send it on to a designated person in our group for them to add to it!  It's exciting and fun to see the journals as we get them and create in each one.  It was hard to let go of this baby at first but I really loved getting someone else's to create in.  Here is a peek at my journal before I mailed it on to my buddy!

FCJuly2014Card_MouS

To make this card, you'll need:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso

Let me walk you through the steps.

1. Cut and fold cardstock to make a 5.5" x 4.25" card.

2. Trim corrugated paper to 5.25" x 4". Attach to card. With paint brush, apply Gesso to the corrugated surface.

3. Trim woven paper to 4.5" x 3.5". Color lightly with Gelatos. Blend with Gesso. When dry, ink up stamp with Black Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp on woven paper. Attach to corrugated paper.

4. Apply Gesso to muslin fabric. Let dry. Ink up stamp with Black Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp on muslin. Color the stamped image with other colors of Stamper's Big Brush pens. Cut a rectangle around the stamped and colored image. Attach to woven paper.

5. Stamp sentiment on cardstock using Black Stamper's Big Brush pen. Add some color with Pink Madder Lake Stamper's Big Brush pen. Cut into a strip. Attach below the muslin piece to finish the card.

Take the Challenge with Mou, July 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here  and welcome to the seventh Take The Challenge of 2014

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

This month's challenge is to create something you don't usually create. It could be style, colors, theme, products, anything you don't create often.

For me, it's Steampunk. I like the look but don't try doing it myself. Here's my take:

FCJuly2014TakeTheChallengeProject_MouS

In my project, I used - 

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso

Here are some close-ups of my page:
