Card Set using Watercolor Mediums

Hello Everyone!!
Isha here, sharing my first post as Guest Designer at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. I am so excited to be here.   All the products are amazing, I just want to use and try everything. And, to make things even better, you can mix and match all the products. The color code system by Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® makes it easy to pick the right colors/products.
I created three Clean and Simple cards using various products on each card, keeping the same Hero Arts Stamp (Frames and Feathers). 
Card: 1 
I decided to use Stamper’s Big Brush Pen,  and Gelatos® on Kraft cardstock. This is how I created it: 
First spritz the stamp twice, using a water mister. Apply Gelatos® and mist again just once. Stamp directly onto the card. The Gelatos® react with water and give bright and vibrant colors.

Use the  Stamper’s Big Brush Pen onto the sentiment. Huff once and stamp the sentiment. Flick some Gesso mixed with water.
Card: 2 
I decided to create a resist card using Gelatos® and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens.

I took cardstock which was stamped and embossed using white embossing powder. Apply Gelatos® directly onto the panel. They are so creamy, just like using a chapstick. Rub and blend them using your fingers (use a different finger for each color).


I then stamped my feathers using Stamper’s Big Brush Pens, since I did not have the purple, I used purple Gelatos® to stamp one feather.


I then stamped the sentiment onto a white scrap. Rub a bit of Gelatos® onto the acrylic block, add a bit of water and color in some parts. Stamper’s Big Brush Pens are permanent once they are dry.
Card: 3
For this card I used  Art GRIP® Color Pencils Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens.


I stamped the feathers using the pens. They blend so well together and that is how I achieved the gradient look.


I then used the Aquarelle watercolor pencil underneath every feather and then blended it using some water. Since Stamper’s Big Brush Pens have India ink in them, they are permanent once dry, so you can easily use water over them.
To finish off, I just stamped the sentiment using the black Big Brush Pen.
I hope I could inspire you to mix and match of whatever products you have at hand.
