Sir Rabbit mixed media card

Have you enjoyed the projects that you've seen from the Stampendous DT for the Stampendous/ Faber-Castell collaboration?  They're not over yet!  I have one more for you today, plus be sure to check the Stampendous blog today for more links.  Don't forget to check in on Friday as well for our blog hop!


Today is a card using gelatos again, but this time I've used them as watercolors over Pan Pastels.  I first stamped Sir Rabbit onto Kraft cardstock then colored his pants and bow tie with blue pan pastel.  After setting that with a quick fixative I added some gelato highlights.

I scribbled my colors onto my craft sheet then pulled the color with a waterbrush to add accents.

  29. I don't know what Pan Pastel are, but after seeing your cards, I intend to find out! I just recently got a set of Gelatos and have used them and can't imagine how I lived without them!
