Gina K. Designs Faber-Castell Hop: Day 3

 Fabercastell-GinaK-Blog Hop
Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K. Designs/Faber-Castell Blog Hop!  We are so excited to team up with the Faber-Castell designers! Both  design teams are sure to WOW you with their many beautiful, creative ideas for using Gina K. and Faber-Castell products together.    We've got another incredible day of inspiration for you, so let's get started!  Don't forget to keep those comments coming as you hop through the blogs to enter to win a Gina K. Designs stamp set of your choice (up to a $24.95 value)

Pop over to the Faber-Castell Blog  and leave a comment for a chance to win a Designing With Gelatos Kit, too!

I used three Faber-Castell products here: Stamper's Big White pen, which is hands down the BEST white pen I've tried, and worked beautifully on this Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury Kraft cardstock for my sheep (Gina K. Designs Fleece Navibaa set by Debbie Corbari), snow and drift; their neutral watercolor pencils to add some gray shadows to the body and brownish gray for his ears and face, both blended with a water brush; and finally silver and gold metallic pens to fill in the lights. Of course add a dot of white highlight over the gold and silver for dimension and twinkle! These pens and pencils I will be using again and again!  Red Hot cardbase, Black Onyx ink pad, Kraft button and ribbon are of course all Pure Luxury from Gina K Designs. :)
 
 Thank you Faber-Castell for your outstanding products and hopping with us today!

Now please go visit the lovely and talented Michelle Woerner!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hi Rosy, This pen has big fat bullet tip, you can color all those circle snow bits with one dot. You'd be coloring forever with what you could cover with a Signo. It's terrific! But too big to draw faux stitches :)
