Hi everyone, Mou Saha here on behalf of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft. Today, I’m going to show you a few things you can do with Stamper’s Big Brush Pens (http://www.fabercastell.com/design-memory-craft/products/categories/stampers-big-brush-pens). Stamper’s Big Brush Pens come in so many beautiful colors and the best part is that they are permanent once dry meaning you can keep adding layers, water, mediums, etc. and the lightfast India ink will not bleed. Here’s a card I made with Stamper’s Big Brush pens.
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper’s Big Brush Pens: Light Blue 154, Cobalt Green 156, May Green 170, Chrome Green 174
Essential PITT Artist Pens: BLACK
Gelatos Designer Colors – Tropical- Snow Cone
Mix & Match Deluxe Water brush
Others: Cardstock: Recollections Flower stamps: Stampin’ Up! Background stamp: The Rubber Cafe Adhesive: Scotch 3M Scissors: Scotch 3M
Instructions: Let me walk you through the steps.
Color the card with Snow Cone Gelato. Blend with water brush. While the color is still somewhat moist, ink up the background stamp with Cobalt Green Stamper’s Big Brush pen and stamp on the card.
On a small strip of cardstock stamp the silhouette of a flower using Light Blue Stamper’s Big Brush pen .
Ink up the detail stamp with Cobalt Green Stamper’s Big Brush pen and stamp on top of the stamped silhouette image to create a second layer. Stamp as many flowers as you wish to use. Stamp leaf silhouettes with May Green Stamper’s Big Brush pen and details with Chrome Green Stamper’s Big Brush pen. Cut the flowers and leaves out with scissors and arrange them on the card as you like. Use foam tape to add dimension. Use Cobalt Green Stamper’s Big Brush pen to write the sentiment ‘hello’ at the base of the card. Write ‘there’ with a PITT Artist pen to finish.
We hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial and will give Stamper’s Big Brush pens a try on your next project. We want to extend a sincere thank you to Mou Saha for her fabulous project and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft for sharing their company with us.
