May Arts + Faber Castell

I had a crazy good time playing with the Faber Castell goodies I was working with!
May Arts + Faber Castell = BIG FUN!
Here's what I have to share:

I used 3 colors of gelatos from the red mix & match set & mixed it with the whipped spackle.
Gelatos Colors-Red
Whipped Spackle
Ombre fun? Yes, please!
I spread that over 2" webbed weave ribbon.
I tied a big 1.25" white silk bow & 1/4" pink silk tails

Another mix of gelato & spackle, this time spread over 7/8" adhesive fleur-de-lis scroll design.
I love having cards like this in my stash!

I can hardly contain my excitement for this project!!!
I've painted a bottle with a multi-surface paint on top & the bottom is Faber Castell's chalkboard paint!
Chalkboard Paint
I've tied 1/8" burlap cord in ivory at the color break- with a nautical knot in front.
Burlap string in ivory around the neck, with the tails holding navy satin cut-out anchors!

I used the Stamper's Big White pen to create my 'chalk' ahoy!
