Hello everyone! Happy Valentine’s Day! Welcome to Sweet Treats Hop co-hosted by Tombow and Avery Elle! If you’re here from Debbie Fisher, then you’re in the right place!
Tombow generously let us pick a pack of 6-color Dual Brush Pen Set and I went with GROOVY. I used 5 of the colors on my card!
Aren’t they beautiful? I love how intense the colors are!
Using the markers to stamp and creating ink splatter is a little out of my comfort zone. But it turned out to be as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. Use the brush tip to get some color on the stamp.
Feather stamp from Avery Elle Love Notes stamp set.
2. Spray with water.
Holding the spray about 10″ above the stamp, I sprayed 3 times.
3. Tilt and stamp
I gently tilted the stamp so the water can move around a little before I stamp. The more water you have at a spot, the more intense the color will be when dry. Tilting your stamp a little can make a big difference in the results.
I then stamped more feathers in some other colors. I watched some video tutorials on these markers and some of them suggested using watercolor paper. I used Avery Elle Pure White smooth cardstock and it went pretty well.
Then the card developed itself. I had a few splatters while stamping (if you don’t want them, lift your stamp up slowly! LOL) and decided to go with the look. Quick helpful palette: the marker packaging!
I put some color on the plastic surface, sprayed with water and picked the color up with a small paint brush. Then I held the brush about 5″ from above the card and gently tap on it to make the splatters. Quick Tip: Cover your work surface! Guess how I know…
Did you notice the long line came out from my second feather? I decided to cover it with a label maker sentiment! It has always been a problem for me to adhere the labels – they don’t stick! I was very excited after watching the Introduction Video and finally got to try out the new Tombow Xtreme Adhesive!
Well, it’s been 7 days and it’s till holding! ;) Not a sign of the label getting loose = LOVE!
“like birds of a feather” stamp is also from Love Notes stamp set.
Thank you so much for joining me in my little adventure of trying out the Tombow products. Check out the other stops on the list for more ideas and maybe try your luck in the giveaway?
