April Showers Mail Art Postcard By Jennie Garcia

Happy Friday Everyone! This week at the Tombow Blog we have an awesome challenge for you! See this mood board below? Make any project using it as inspiration and link it for the chance to win Tombow Goodies!

APRIL SHOWERS

April is National Card and Letter Writing Month, so I was inspired by this to make a mail art postcard. You know all those junk/promotional postcards you get in mail? Use it a a base for your Mail Art Postcard. For the background I used recycled book paper and to glue it I used the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive on each edge of the postcard and a diagonal line in the center. I didn’t want the text on the background to be overwhelming so I applied a little gesso.April Showers Postcard

I used recycled materials to make this mail art postcard including the Tombow Recycled Pencils! At the beginning my intention was to do a preliminary sketch on this piece of paper that I printed but didn’t needed. I liked how the sketch looked with the white pencil and the kraft background so I decided to go with. Whenever I make a mistake with a color pencil I use the Tombow Sand Eraser and it works like a charm! You can also use it to make highlights.

April Showers Postcard1 After I cut the excess of the drawing I glued it with the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive and I lined the drawing with the Tombow Mono Twin Permanent Marker. For the drops I used scraps of photo paper and the Tombow Dual Brush Pens. You can see this technique HERE April Showers Postcard2

You can interpret this challenge however you want and use the elements of the mood board that inspires you. It doesn’t have to be the whole thing. You could win the NEW Tombow Adhesive Dots, Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue and the Tombow Dual Brush Pens Groovy Set. April Showers Challenge Prize

This challenge will start on March 30 and will end on April 12 at 11:55PM EST. Winner will be announced Monday April 13. You can link your project HERE!

How to Make a Corner Bookmark

Happy April everyone! What a great challenge we have for you. I was inpsired by Daniella’s mood board for sure and pulled the black and yellow out as well as the black bow. Loved it.

APRIL SHOWERS

When I think of April showers I think of lazy days. For us it means catching up on some reading or just hanging out. I’ve been seeing this little tutorial around and thought I would give corner bookmarks a try. I followed this tutorial and you can find the template there as well.

You’ll need the following items pictured below.

Tombow MONO permanent
Tombow Adhesive dots
Bone Folder
Scissors
Paper
Die or bow template

Next follow the easy steps to create your corner bookmark. It can literally be decorated any way you would like. I added the bow to two of them and a scallop to the third. This bow die was perfect since I could press it flat and still know what it was. Flowers are perfect as well. I’ve seen monsters and more. A great way to get the kids involved and to reuse paper scraps like I did. edited-5

April Showers Gold Blue Card JPriest

How to make glitter lettering

When I think of the rain, I think of the color blue. I drew inspiration for the card I’m sharing today from the yellow on the April Showers Mood Board created by Daniella Hayes earlier this week. Join our Inspiration Challenge! Just visit THIS BLOG POST, create something inspired by the mood board, and then  link it up using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.

I created a gold and blue card inspired by the mood board above, drawing heavily on the yellow color and rainy day theme. This card has a fun and unique technique – how to make glitter lettering. Many companies offer pretty printed journaling cards, like this one from DCWV. I thought this journaling card would make a great handmade greeting card but I needed to add some color somehow.

April Showers Gold Blue Card JPriest

Using the Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue, I traced the lettering of some of the words on the journaling card. Then I sprinkled blue glitter on top and allowed it to dry. The result is glittery, dimensional lettering that really makes the card POP!

April Showers Inspired Card JPriest

I added the crepe paper ruffle to the back of the journaling card with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. Then I mounted the journaling card to the card front with Tombow Foam Tape. Finally, I added three buttons to the card with Tombow Adhesive Dots.

A card like this is certain to brighten anyone’s day. Consider using Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue to add extra dimension and glitter to your journaling cards and paper craft projects.
