Hi everyone!! I was contacted by Design Memory Craft and asked if I wanted to try out the Mix & Match Mixed Media Sample and Colors Gelatos, post about it, and give away 2 sets to my followers. That sounded like a ton of fun to me :)
Here's a bit of info on the products:
Mix & Match from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft makes designing with color simple. Choose a color set that inspires you. Choose a medium. Mix & Match as you create. Color coordinated palettes give you the freedom to design your project knowing the colors will work beautifully together. Perfect for all your design, memory and craft projects.
Mixed Media Sampler Sets
in Red, Yellow, Blue and Green encourage you to spread your creative wings and experiment with mixing mediums! Each set includes a Stamper’s Big Brush, Gelato Metallic Stick, Pastel Pencil and Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor pencil. Experiment with mixing colors and mediums or layer different mediums to create depth and details. Or try using your rubber stamps with the different mediums to see which effects you like the most.
are creamy sticks infused with brilliant color. The color slides easily onto papers and can then be dissolved with water to create watercolor effects, or left to dry for vibrant bursts of color. Try stamping with the Color Gelatos, or apply a field of color and use a stamp to remove the color. Color Gelatos work wonderfully on flocked papers and embellishments too! Color Gelatos are acid-free and odorless.
Everything I used on my card is from the Mix & Match Sampler. I also have the Color Gelatos and Clear Stamp Kit which I hope to show a sample of tomorrow. For this card, I used the Gelato to rub over the embossed card stock. Next, I stamped the image and then used the Art Grip pencil to color the icing and the Pitt Pastel to color the 'flame'. I used a brush and made it a bit watercolored. Next was the Artist pen which I used to go over the dots on the cake. Then I finished it off with the Big Brush Pen to make the stitching and the Gelato again on the edges for some more color. I'm not sure you can see all that with the picture. It's not super fancy, but I haven't always been great with coloring images. The picture to the right shows the different pens/pencils in the Samper kit. The Gelato is at the bottom--I couldn't write with that one.
I think my favorite item are the Gelatos, but need to get the hang of it better. You should be able to stamp with them, but it didn't quite work for me. I think I need to try a different stamp. And I think I'd love to get the blues sets :)
I'm sure a lot of you can do some awesome things with these products!! Design Memory Crafts is letting me give away a Mix & Match Mixed Media Sampler and Color Gelatos & Clear Stamp kit to two winners!! So just leave one comment and a way for me to get in touch with you. I will draw two winners next Wednesday.
Check back tomorrow for a post on the Gelatos--I'm going to play some more tonight and see if I can showcase them a bit better for you :) Also, you can visit http://www.designmemorycraft.com/

I do love the product--the pencils are high quality and the markers just wonderful. And you can do so much with the Gelatos, I just have to practice a bit more :) I am just thrilled that I was picked to try it out!!
