Have a Bubbly Day by Debbie Fisher

Hello! Today I have a fun card to share with you using Inky Antics Spa Turtle stamp set. I think this would be so much fun to give to someone with some bubbly bath, lotions, etc. Maybe a good book and some chocolate too!

Have a Bubbly Day

 

I used Irojiten Colored Pencils to color in the image, Mono Glue Pen to color in the bubbles and add glitter and Mono Adhesive Dots to adhere all the pieces together.

Thank you for stopping by,

Decorative Painting Trick with Irojiten Colored Pencils by Marie Browning

IMG_3502

This is a quick fix for all you decorative painters out there. I painted this little frog in with acrylic paints on a wooden surface. I was not happy at all with my floating and used Tombow’s Irojiten Colored Pencils to do a quick re-do.

IMG_3505

Here is Mr.Frog again, this time the shading is a bit smoother, the highlights more defined and the coloring a bit brighter. I started by choosing my Irojiten colors, and making sure the paint is bone-dry, I blended the colors on top of the painting. I loved using the Fluorescent green to really make the green ‘pop’! Even the very fine details were easy to handle. In a few minutes I was much happier with the finished piece. The acrylic matte varnish then was applied to protect and fix the painting.

Here is the finished seed box lid ready for my spring planting!

april showers bring may flowers….by melissa cash

Hi there!  This week Jennie has challenged us to created something based on her
“April Showers” theme.
 I couldn’t help but think of all of the beautiful flowers that bloom after a good Spring rain.
I watercolored this beautiful Penny Black Promise Me #4384K  image with Tombow Dual Brush pens onto some Canson 140# Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper.  This is such an easy technique and you should give it a try….soon!
Color directly onto a bold image stamp (such as this one) with your Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then spritz the stamp 2-4 times (but don’t over saturate) press stamp to paper and hold there for about a count of 10-12 to allow the ink to soak into the paper just a bit.
When you lift the stamp you will have a beautiful image to embellish as you would like.  I added some glitter to the flower for a little sparkle!  What girl doesn’t like a little sparkle?
I used Tombow’s Xtreme Glue Tape to adhere the purple embossed panel to the base card and Tombow Foam Tabs to adhere the watercolor panel to the embossed panel.  Added a ribbon and pretty sentiment from the Penny Black Special Wishes #30-229 set.
Be sure to play along with the challenge and you could have a chance to win this awesome prize pack:

You have until  Monday April 7th at midnight to participate!

Remember that voting starts on Tuesday April 8th so tell your friends to vote!

Winner will be announced on Wednesday April 9th!

Last but not least you can win: The NEW Tombow Xtreme Permanent AdhesiveTombow
