Here is another project I created with the Faber-Castell products.

I started by painting a chipboard circle with gesso to prime it. Next the grit background from Moments in Bloom was inked with Nougat Big Brush Pen and stamped over the chipboard. Once it dried, blue metallic and pistachio gelato were rubbed over the circle and smoothed out with a finger tip.

Flowers from Moments in Bloom were inked with the Cobalt Turquoise and Chrome Green Big Brush Pen and stamped over the grid. Once that dried, the same pens were used to add more detail. Small black lines were added with the Fine Artist Pen and highlights with more gesso (I used my paper piercer to apply it). The sentiment, also from the same set, was inked up with the Black PITT Big Brush Pen and stamped over the flowers.  More gesso was used to soften the edges of the circle.

Ribbon was run through the hole in the chipboard, topped with a button and tied on with Honeydew Twine. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
