Lawn Fawn Faber

Hey bloggers Rita Barakat here!

Today Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® and  Lawn Fawn are having a blog hop! I  got to work with Lawn Fawns Making Frosty Friends stamps and the Fa La La Petite paper pack. The bow and the background paper for my tag was from the paper pack.

I had lots of fun coloring the peices with PITT® Artist Pens and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens.

Lawn Fawn Faber2
PITT® Artist Pens are perfect to get those hard to color tiny spaces! The molted background look on my tag is achieved by misting the paper, drawing on a craft mat with Big Stampers Brush Pen, mist the color and wipe it up with the tag!

Rita always rocks the Faber Castelll products and I love how she incorporated the great Lawn Fawn stamp set and papers I to this. I also loved learning about the new (to me) techniques of using the big brush pens and running the tag through the ink to create that background, genius! Love how the whole thing turned out and can't wait to try to copy it for myself!
