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

For my first card I used the Funky Flowers collection and stamped directly onto a piece of canvas from Canvas Corp using a black Big Brush Marker and then proceeded to colour in my images using different colours of Big Brush markers.
I was so amazed at how vibrant the colours came out on the canvas!

Markers: Faber Castell
Cardstock: SU
PP: Bo Bunny
Canvas: Canvas Corp
Ink: Tim Holtz
Misc: brads, ribbon

On my next card I played with the Metallic Gelatos. It's like playing with a tube of lipstick!! How fun.
I clear embossed the star image from the Back to the Basics set and then coloured all over the top with the gold gelato. I used a baby wipe to clean off the embossed areas and presto.....I had a fabulous background for my card.
For my sentiment I used the Small Greetings set...a must have in my books...and white embossed onto a piece of chalkboard paper from Canvas Corp.


Stamps: myStampBOX
Gelato: Faber Castell
Cardstock: SU, Neenah
Ribbon: LYB
Misc: Versamark, button, embossing powder, floss, Uniball Signo pen

On my last card I stamped this cute image from Warm Tweets. I'm loving this adorable set!
I coloured it in using the Big Brush Markers.
The sentiment from the same collection was stamped using the Black Big Brush Marker.
