This week our team will be showcasing the Art Grip Aquarelles Watercolor Pencils, the PITT Pastel Pencils, and our very special guest Nathalie Kalbach will be featuring the Gelatos! There will be guest-starring roles by the PITT Artist Pens for doodling and drawing!
3 Lucky Winners this week will get three sets of the PITT Pastel Pencils (red/yellow, blue/green, neutrals), a jar of Faber-Castell Chalkboard Paint, and $20http://www.stampendous.comreward card to choose their favorite images to color! WOW… these winners must have a U.S. mailing address (official rules here!)… BUT WAIT-Aussie Fans– The Stencil Specialist has you covered again this time!! One Australian Fan will win a Stampendous Stamp, a Dreamweaver Stencil (LJ size customer choice), and one Dreamweaver Stencils Regular Embossing Paste. Wow!!
Now, on to my post. It actually does triple duty as, of course, it is created with Faber Castell, but also contains Dreamweaver Stencils AND fits this week's Stampendous team of Perfect Pets.
I created a puppy box. First, I covered a paper mache heart shaped box with Faber-Castell Chalk Board Paint. I used two coats. When it was completely dry, I used an ordinary pencil to trace Dreamweaver Stencil LL 3029 Dog and LG 749 Dog Words on the paint. I made sure to use a very sharp pencil. Then, I colored the images with PITT Pastel Pencils. I lightly blew off the excess pastel. It seems to have stuck to the Chalkboard Paint very well, but if you are nervous about it wearing off, you could spray it with a fixative. That was it!
Let’s check out today’s inspiration from our designers, and don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win!
I live with my husband and my very spoiled collie in Michigan. I enjoy scrapbooking because I feel like it is both a way to preserve memories and create art. I love being on the Dreamweaver Design Team because I can explore techniques using these exquisite stencils and work with a group of wonderful teammates. I previously enjoyed working on the sparkling teams of both Art Glitter and Connie Crystals. I have also served on the Globecraft Memories Design Team, and completely addicted to their 3D Enamel Gels. I appeared in the Dec/Jan 2011 edition of The Stampers Sampler, The 2011 Catch Up Issue. and the April 2011 Stamp & Scrap Arts.
