Good wintery morning to you! I am excited to be sharing a project with you today featuring some great products from DCWV and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! We are having our winter blog hop, and not only have we had a couple of great days of projects already, but we have more to come.
I decided to team up the Winter in the Woods stack with a fun teal coloured Faber-Castell Double Scoop Gelato in “Snow Cone” and an awesome PITT artist pen in silver 251 to create a winter -themed banner.
This banner was a lot of fun to make. I really loved the colours in this stack – the muted greys and creams together with the brighter teams and the green! There is so much going on, and yet there is a cool, peaceful feel to the papers and patterns.
The Faber-Castell products were a great compliment to the papers. I actually used the Gelato much like I have used distress inks in the past – I ran it along the edges of the banner pieces, and then rubbed it in with my fingers. It’s a great way to pull all the pieces together and also to help them stand out a bit from the background paper. Oh, and the PITT pen was used for some doodling – the think ink running smoothly over even the textured paper. Man, I love this pen! Oh, and that ribbon happens to be from one of our other partner companies – May Arts (you know I love my 3/4″ Chevron Twill)!
