Day 2 of Design Memory Craft Feature!!

I hope that you saw yesterday's post because this week on my blog, 
I am featuring some gorgeous new products from Design Memory Craft

I am not going to go through the details of the products again...
you can go back and look at yesterday's post for that. 

Just know...
that you will want to comment on all my Design Memory Craft posts this week 
and you will have a chance to win 2 prize packs being supplied from Faber-Castell! 
How fun is that?!?!

For today's art, I used the same technique that I used on yesterday's post (misting the stamp image and then coloring directly onto it using the gelatos.) That's how I created the frame for the Moxie. The Moxie was stamped using the brush of the PITT artist pen.

In addition, on this card, I colored the background using the gelatos. That background is a page out of an old dictionary. I simply sprayed the whole page with my water, rubbed the gelatos directly onto it and then mushed it all together using my fingers to blend all the colors. After I had the look that I wanted with the colors, I crumpled up the page to create a more distressed look to it.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Moxie
*DCWV houndstooth paper
*Prima paper (blue)
*dictionary page
*pinking shears
*black flat-backed gems

Be sure to leave a comment on my Design Memory Craft blog posts this week.

Tomorrow, I will be sharing a different technique using the Gelatos!! 

Have a great Tuesday everyone!!

another beautiful card! Is that the trick, to spray the stamp with water first? As I tried using watercolour crayons on a Unity stamp once and it seemed hard to do - will need to try again with misting the stamp with water before colouring. Thanks for the inspiration.
