So Happy For You
Happy Sunday, everyone.
Today I have a card made with some Faber Castell goodies I bought a few weeks ago. I got few of these sets containing a Big Brush marker and 3 Aquarelles. I've been using the Aquarelle watercolor pencils a lot, but hadn't tried the Big Brushes yet. Then I got the Faber Castell newsletter and found out that if you post a project on their Facebook page by 5/31 made with a Big Brush you can be eligible for a draw for a $25 GC. So that sounded like a good reason to try out one of my Big Brushes.
For the little scene here I used watercolor paper and scribbled the background with the #104 Aquarelle, then used a wet brush to make the washed background. I used the May Green#170 Big Brush for the Hero Arts Blooming Meadow image and the Black Big Brush for the sentiment, but then I heat embossed the Hero Arts Musical Walk silhouette image just to make sure nothing would show through.
And I found some great deals at Barnes and Noble on these older packaged Faber Castell items. I thought I'd share, in case anyone was going to BN anytime soon maybe yours will have them too. I got the set of 6 gelatos for $3.50 and the set of 4 Big Brushes for $5.99!
I hven't tried the Gelatos yet, but they're next on my list!
