JustRite and Faber-Castell Mixed Media Blog Hop, Day Two!

Welcome to Day Two of the JustRite Papercraft & Faber Castell Mixed Media Blog Hop!  I hope you've been able to visit all the designer's blogs to check out their awesome creations!  And did you get a look at all the prizes?



For a chance to win these fabulous prize packages, please leave comments on each designers blog post.  Two designated mystery designers blogs have been determined and the winners will be selected from those blog comments, so be sure and comment on all participating blogs.  Comments will be open until March 22 at midnight EST.  Good Luck!

I have a birthday card for you today!  It measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" with card front bottom trimmed up a bit to accommodate the Spellbinders A2 Brackett Border die cuts!

The bird chipboard is from Want2Scrap.  I placed one coat of white acrylic paint on the chipboard before heat embossing.  A Grateful Heart Vintage Labels Two sentiment stamp along with one of the sets decorative stamps was stamped using the above ink and clear embossing powder for a heat embossed creation. (be sure to note the bird's eye on the finished card, a Want2Scrap teardrop adhesive pearl)

Three colors of Gelatos were used, Peach and Chocolate (Gelatos Color ct. Neutrals), Green (Mixed Media Sampler, Green).  Gliding the Gelato stick over my stamped heat embossed sentiment and bird was so quick and fun!  Yes, smooth as butter!  Then with a slight wet finger, I rubbed the colors to desired color.   

Included in the Mixed Media Sampler is this PITT artist pen that I used to detail the leaves.  When I first applied the lines, I felt I applied too many!  So I used a water mist, and let the color bleed!  After the leaves were dry, I went back in with the pen and drew a few more lines for less detail!   

I used a Spellbinders Beaded Oval die #2 to cut the stamped JustRite Grateful Hearts Vintage Labels Two sentiment.  Leaving the die on the sentiment, I applied the Green Gelato and rubbed it until I achieved the color desired!  A few other details regarding my card today, designer papers from PapertreyInk; Prima Trinket flower and Seam Binding from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  The Spellbinders A2 Brackett Borders Dies and Gold Labels Four are found in the JustRite Store by clicking on the bold red wording.

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your visits! Take good care and have a Terrific Tuesday! Check out the following creations by clicking on designer's name which will take you to each respective blog. Enjoy the creativity and be inspired!
