Faber-Castell and JustRite's Mixed Media Blog Hop!

What an exciting two days it's going to be!  JustRite has teamed up with Faber Castell for an educational blog hop.  The designers will not only have awesome projects to share with you, but a tutorial to go with it!  On top of all that goodness, JustRite and Faber Castell are both giving away prizes each day on their blog! 
Today's card uses the flower from the Floral Vintage Labels Two set by JustRite.  I paired it up with white embossing powder and Faber-Castell's gelatos.  I used a bit of embossing for texture and a bit of ribbon to finish it off. 
I added a blue acrylic flower to pick up the hint of blue in the card.  
This card was easy to make and was done in  a few easy steps! Just ink up your image with Versamark and emboss in white.  Use a Faber-Castell's gelatos, water, and a paintbrush to fill in areas of your stamped image. I "smooshed" a bit of the gelato color onto a transparency and added a bit of water. The transparency made a great painter's palette because the water doesn't absorb into it.  
I had so much fun working with this product!  Join along in our hop today to see what amazing projects the designers created!  
And don't forget to visit the JustRite blog and the Faber Castell blog, for your chance to win some pretty amazing products!
