Faber-Castell Product Review/Giveaway! (CLOSED)

***This giveaway is now CLOSED***

As many of you know, I adore paper crafting.  That's why I was SO excited when I was contacted by Faber-Castell to review some of their new Design Memory Craft Mix & Match products!       

Mix & Match from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft makes designing with color simple.  Choose a color set that inspires you.  Choose a medium.  Mix & Match as you create.  Color coordinated palettes give you the freedom to design your project knowing the colors will work beautifully together.  Perfect for all your design, memory, and craft projects.

They sent me their Color Gelatos & Clear Stamp Set
                               
Color Gelatos are creamy sticks infused with brilliant color.  The color slides easily onto papers and can hen be dissolved with water to create watercolor effects, or left to dry for vibrant bursts of color.  Try stamping with the Color Gelatos, or apply a field of color and use a stamp to remove the color.  Color Gelatos work wonderfully on flocked papers and embellishments too!  Color Gelatos are acid-free and odorless.


As well as the Mixed Media Sampler
                                          
Mixed Media Sampler Sets in Red, Yellow, Blue, and Green encourage you to spread your creative wings and experiment with mixing mediums!  Each set includes a Stamper's Big Brush, Gelato Metallic Stick, Pastel Pencil and Art GRIP Aquarelle watercolor pencil.  Experiment with mixing colors and mediums or layer different mediums to create depth and details.  Or try using your rubber stamps with the different mediums to see which effects you like the most.

My 10 year-old daughter wanted to be a fellow 'Reviewer', so she tried the products out right along with me.  Here's what we came up with:



Using some stamps we already had on hand, we stamped an image on cardstock and then played with the different colors from the kits.  My daughter absolutely LOVED experimenting with the different products!  In fact, she pretty much took over the whole project!  Her favorite item was the Color Gelatos.  She liked how they were easy to use, and the colors were nice and vibrant.  I have to say, I agree!   

Now for the FUN part!!  Faber-Castell is giving away a Mixed Media Sampler AND Color Gelatos & Clear Stamp Kit to 2 lucky readers!!  Aren't they wonderful?!

I'm going to make this simple to enter.  You MUST be a follower of my blog to enter this giveaway.  Leave ONE COMMENT on this post with your email address included.  That's it!!

 This giveaway will remain open until MIDNIGHT on Sunday, April 24th.  I'll announce the 2 WINNERS on Monday, April 25th.  Good luck!!
