Colorful Stampendous with Faber-Castell


Tuesday I was here showing you a colorful Cherry Bird spotlighting luscious Gelatos. Today the color focus is on Floral Lady using Art GRIP Aquarelles Watercolor Pencils and a few Gelatos to fill in here and there.


The background is done with Wired Stamp Set stencil and a Gelatos wash.

After all the layers were glued together I dropped some Aqua Liquid glue in dots around the edges of Floral Lady and then sprinkled Crystal Embossing Powder over them then tapped off the excess. Once the glue was dry and went over the dots with my heat tool. The result is clear sparkly dots! (Don't tarry on the dots or they will boil.)


Thank you for stopping by today and make sure to stop off at our other fine designer's blog.

Janelle Stollfus - that's me!

  20. Her blouse looks really good being only partially colored. It makes her clothes sort of melt into the edges. It's a good technique!
