May Arts & Faber Castell Blog Hop


The May Arts Ribbonistas are joining Faber-Castell to bring you some inspiring products this week.

I got to play with Faber Castell's Metallic Gelatos and Stamper's Big White Pen (can you say LOVE?)

I love the subtle shimmer on the water color paper as well as on the May Arts Eyelet Lace and that lovely salmon color..swoon!  I used it to color what began life as white May Arts Wrinkled Ribbon.

Now, with Gelatos, you can color white ribbon to custom match your cards in no time.

Here's how easy it is:  Rub the color on the ribbon, then use a baby wipe to blend it..a little or alot.  Easy!

I used watercolor paper for my card.  I made two swipes with the Gelatos, then used a very slightly dampened paper towel to blend them.  I found the baby wipe to be a bit too wet for the watercolor paper.

Thanks for joining us and be sure to visit each Designer's blog and leave some love.    Be sure to visit the Faber-Castell Blog and May Arts Blog as well for a chance to win your choice of 3 rolls of May Arts Ribbon (your choice) AND $50 in product from Faber-Castell Design!!
