Hello everyone and welcome to day 6 of Waffle Flower Crafts 3 year celebration!! I’m just thrilled to be here with you all with a new video share! Today we are collaborating with the tremendous Tombow and oh boy do we have a fantastic giveaway for today, 4 sets (Bright, Primary, Secondary, and Grayscale) Dual Brush Pens! And these markers are my new favorite things!!
Watch below or on our YouTube channel.
First, I did some ink smooshing using 4 Dual Brush Pens (346, 476, 493, 133). I simply colored with all markers on a piece of acetate then misted it with water and then turned it over smooshed the acetate down onto a 4.25” x 5.5” panel of watercolor paper. I then allowed by panel to dry and then ink smooshed a little more with 493 and 133.
Next, I stamped several images from the new Stay Cool Stamp Set in Versafine Black Onyx Ink (a waterproof ink) on watercolor paper. Once the images were dry (I dried them with my heat gun because I’m impatient) I colored them with the Dual Brush Pens (Bear-933,992,977; Trunks/umbrella-885; Towel/Leaves-158,133; Bird-055,993; Coconut-992,977; Book-346,493) and used a waterbrush to blend the colors together and create a gradation. Once the images were dry I diecut them out using the matching dies. Next, I stamped and white embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and then trimmed my dry watercolor panel down 1/16” on all the sides. I then adhered all my diecuts using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to my panel and then adhered my panel onto a black A2 card base using a Tombow Mono Adhesive + Permanent tape runner. Lastly I trimmed by sentiment and adhered it down with foam tape.
For this card I started by stamping the wave and bird in inner tube from the Stay Cool Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto a 4.25” x 5.5” panel of watercolor paper. I then masked the bird and stamped the wave over the bird and stamped the bear’s head, fish, sunglasses, and sentiment all in Versafine onto my panel.
Next, once the images were dry, I colored them using the Dual Brush Pens (Water-346,493; Bear-933,992,977; Bird-055,993,743; Leaves-158,133; Innertube-885,925; Fish-933,925) and used a waterbrush to blend the colors and create my gradations. Lastly, I trimmed by water color panel down a 0.25” at the top and then adhered my panel down using Tombow Mono Adhesive + Permanent tape runner onto a A2 black card base.
I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to comment for your chance to win these 4 sets of Dual Brush Pens by Tombow. Thanks for stopping by!
