Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft & Perfect Layers Blog Hop


Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft is teaming up with Perfect Layers for a blog hop!  Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft will be giving away $50 in prizes and Perfect Layers will be giving away 3 Perfect Layers Rulers! 
Here’s how you can win:
  1. You have until midnight EST, on April 5th to complete the hop
  2. Just follow the links below- be sure to leave a comment on each post.  That way, we’ll know you were there.  Happy hopping!

Perfect Layers also has a special discount for you- use coupon code FC5% to get 5% off your entire order! 
Here's my card for the hop:

I used Perfect Tears 3- Tool set to tear decorative edge strips from cardstock.
Then I colored the pieces with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® (Bubblegum, Cotton Candy, and Lemon) and  blended the colors with a wet brush.

 
Once the paint dried, I layered the pieces to my card and stitched at the very top.



I stamped my sentiment using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pen (Pink Madder) on cardstock.
I used PITT Artist pen to add to the sentiment and cut it out.
I attached the sentiment to the card with foam tape for dimension.

Happy Hopping everyone!
