There is a new product review on SCS today. We got to play with Design Memory Crafts Mixed Media Sampler (Faber-Castell products). After checking their blog and finding this cool card, I wrote a tutorial for the technique for SCS. My sample is a lot more subdued then Jill Foster‘s, but I still like it. Those Pastel Pencils are a lot of fun.

I started by cutting a piece of black cardstock with a Classic Square Nestabilities die. Flowers from Verve’s Great Friend were stamped in Embossing Ink and embossed with silver embossing powder. The flowers were colored with PITT Pastel Pencils and the edges were smudged with a white gelato stick.

The card base was embossed with the Elegance M-Bossibilities folder and the image panel was adhered over it with dimensionals. A piece of Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with a Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole die. A sentiment was stamped over it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the right edge was cut straight. It was adhered to the lower right hand side of the image. It was topped with a black button, tied with Lemondrop twine.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
