Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Designer
Today we welcome Jill Foster. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Jill’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
Always looking for fresh inspiration, Jill turns stamped images into true works of art. As her “Inspired By” blog followers know, Jill has a beautiful style and an unparalleled love of paper crafting. She also designs for Penny Black stamps and loves to share her passion for paper, color and stamping through video and photo tutorials.
Double Scoop of Inspiration
Hi, my crafty friends! Jill here with a double scoop of inspiration. These artsy tags allowed me to play and with my favorite thing… COLOR!
This is a look at each background before I added my embellishments.
I first painted both tags with Gesso. For the yellow tag, I colored directly onto the tag using the Double Scoop Gelatos® in the colors of Lemon and Butterscotch. I then blended the colors using my fingertips. For the multi-colored tag, I colored with my Double Scoop Gelatos® (Lemon, Snow Cone, Blueberry, Red Cherry, Mango) onto a large acrylic block, spritzed with water, and then pressed my tag onto the acrylic block. I applied several layers to deepen the colors, drying the tag with my heat tool between each layer.
To finish coloring/stamping the remaining embellishments, I mixed and matched with other Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® mediums including the Nougat Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and Gelatos (Blood Orange, Aqua Dolce).
Hugs and Happy Stamping!
