Faber-Castell: Mixed Media Cards


Hello!  Shellye along with you on this Tuesday as we continue to share Faber-Castell and Pink Paislee creations!  I will admit that I’ve been a bit intimidated by the thought of using Gelatos in the past.  When I received my package of Faber-Castell goodies I immediately set out to find some videos on the different ways to use the really cool emollient-based, water-soluble medium.  I was delighted to find that they can be used with or without water and blended with a paint brush or the tip of your finger…it doesn’t get much easier than that!  So let’s get started with the first card, “All Mine”

Shellye McDaniel-All Mine Card1

For this card I thought I would see how well the Gelatos would work with the coffee filter sheets by Christy Tomlinson (I was thinking rolled flowers). Inspired by the Bubble Gum Gelato, I selected a palette from Secret Crush to work with too.   Beginning at one of the points, I began rolling a single coffee filter sheet so that it would look like this:

Shellye McDaniel-FaberCastell1

Once you have it rolled, secure the end point with a thin glue dot.  Next, begin rolling the paper into a circle and then attach to a round punched piece of paper that is just a bit smaller than the flower.

Shellye McDaniel-All Mine Card2

Next, I ran the Bubble Gum Gelato stick over the different layers.  I chose to blend the color with a water-color pen, but a paintbrush dipped in water would also achieve the same look.  For the ‘leaves’ I colored two of the Artisan Chipboard Hearts with Metallic Mint and then blended/wiped off the excess with a soft cloth…I love it!  Gelatos and Artisan were made for each other :)

Shellye McDaniel-FaberCastell2

For the flower ‘centers’ I brought out a package of plain rhinestones by ZVA Creative and colored them with the White PITT Artist Pen.  This pen is also perfect for creating that ‘chalkboard’ look on vinyl, glass and wood.  I’m hiding this pen from my kids 😉

The last card, “UR My Little Star”, is so colorful and fun!  In my Faber-Castell assortment I received a yellow watercolor pencil, as well as a Blueberry Metallic Gelato;  wanting to mix the two colors together, I grabbed a few pieces from the City Sidewalks Collection and went to work.

Shellye McDaniel-My Little Star Card1

Again, I went with Artisan Chipboard Stars and Heidi Swapp Color Magic Chipboard Alphas.  Using the watercolor pencil, I gently colored the Color Magic Chipboard and then blended with a water-color pen.

Next I applied the Blueberry Metallic Gelato to the larger star shape.

IMG_3363 (500x500)

This is how the Artisan Chipboard looks after the Gelato has been applied.  It goes on creamy and smooth like a lipstick.

After using a cloth and wiping away the excess Gelato, you get this beautiful look with the resist areas showing up nicely!

I look forward to trying even more techniques with my collection of new mediums :)  There are many informative tutorials and videos on using these products…I hope that you’ll give them a try!

    I have watched a few videos and read through a few tutorials on using the Gelato’s I have not yet tried them, I don’t own any, but I would love to mess around with them. From what I have seen there are some many different things you can do with them and so many beautiful creations that can be made!

    I have never used Gelatos or Pitt Pens, but would love to give them a try. Love these projects and the way the gelatos go on like lipstick and can be used like paints!

    Those gelatos are amazing! My daughter just used some blue shades this past weekend with some Mistables for canvas art. She is only 13 and her friends all commented on how cool it came out. This was her first craft project and these products made it so easy. Thanks for that & if we could win more colors that would be awesome!

    Gelatos are difficult to find in Canada however I have some metallic gel sticks which are the children’s version. I don’t really think there is any difference in how they work and they are incredible. Love, love, love them. Thanks for the chance to win these products which were made for each other!
