We are giving away some amazing product from both participating companies. All you have to do is COMMENT on all designers blogs along your journey to WIN.

We will announce the winners on the myStamp BOX blog and Faber-Castell blog on Monday, March 26th. Good Luck!

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




























Color the watercolor paper with Faber Castell gelatos Mango, Metallic Melon, and Silver Ice. Blend with water and brush.



Ink the Lots of Dots alphabet stamps with Warm Grey Stampers Big Brush marker and color the letters h and i with Scarlett Red brush marker. Press the watercolor paper face down on the inked stamp and gently rub to transfer the image.

Mount the piece to patterned cardstock, attach a butterfly die-cut negative on top and stitch. Add details with PITT Artist pen to finish.





























Now it’s time to HOP along and find out what the next talented designer has created. Your next designer is Isolde Pyncket. Don’t forget to leave a comment below for a chance to WIN one of our THREE product giveaways!
