Here is what I made using products from Faber-Castell and myStamp BOX:

I received Faber-Castell's Mixed Media Sampler with metallic shades of gold and silver. I rubbed the creamy Gelatos across brown cardstock, highlighting the texture with each scribble. These luscious acid-free pigment sticks glide on vibrant color and blend beautifully with or without water. The metallics work especially well on dark papers!

I stamped the animal print pattern from myStampBOX's Graphic Border set and heat-embossed in gold. I added a little faux stitching with Faber-Castell's silver PITT artist pen. This pen is made with professional-quality odorless India ink that won’t bleed through your projects, and is waterproof, lightfast and archival. The sentiment came from the Whatever! stamp set.

Now it’s time to HOP along and find out what the next talented designer has created. Your next designer is the fabulous Rita from Faber-Castell . Don’t forget to leave a comment below for a chance to WIN one of our three product giveaways!
