Blog Hop with 100 Proof Press & Faber-Castell


This week we're having a blog hop.  100 Proof Press Rubber StampsFaber-Castell have joined forces and are having a 13 artist blog hop!  You should have just been visiting Mou Saha  and all of her beautiful work.

I got my Faber Castell gelatos (yum yum) and watercolor pencils and let's just say I want more... in EVERY color.  Since I had very Autumnish colors I thought I might pull out the turkey stamps.
The aquarelle pencils were fun to use, I kind of felt like a real artist.   I used three shades to create the background on both of the Thanksgiving Day cards.  I used the big stamp pen for the wishbone stamp, and I even did some shading with gelatos.  My hands got messy, and it was fun!

I also played around with some more of the gelatos in my art journal.  I used a template for the circle background, and was able to coat a gear chipboard with them.
the fortune says "find release from your cares - have a good time"

Thanks for stopping by.  Next up is Amy, she's sure to have something super cute to share.  To find the complete list of the blog hop click here. Both 100 Proof Press & Faber-Castell are awarding prizes, so you might want to check it out!
