pretty in pink….by melissa cash

Hi there!  This week the Tombow team has been sharing cards/projects with a pink theme in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month and all of the Warrior women who have had  breast cancer.
I think if you ask anyone, they will say that they have either battled breast cancer or held the hand of someone who has.
The card I am sharing today is for all of them.  This card has a bit of a vintage feel, yet soft and powerful with pink tones.
The technique I used for this card is one that I call Glazed Watercolor Technique. It is simple, fun and quick!
I started this card by pulling out the Noble stamp from Penny Black and applying Tombow Dual Brush Pens directly to the rubber.  The colors I used are:
Leaves:  126 and 098
Flowers:  772, 723 and 761
Shading:  N95
After coloring directly to the rubber, I gave the stamp a few spritz with some homemade shimmer spray (recipe below) and then I stamped it onto some 140# cold press watercolor paper and held it there for a count of 10.  Carefully lift the stamp and allow image to dry.
 Now here comes the fun….glazing part…okay it isn’t really glaze, but it looks that way when finished.  I inked the stamp with Versamark ink and overstamped the watercolor image (be sure your image is dry) a little to one side or the other as this gives a bit of a shadow. Emboss with clear embossing powder.   Use the Tombow N95 marker to add some light shading to the side of the image that is not covered by clear embossing.  See, I told you the technique was easy.
I would love for you to give my technique a try, if you do please come back and leave me a message so that I can check it out and show you some love!
Now, here is the recipe for the homemade shimmer spray:
In a fine mist spray bottle add a little bit of Ranger Perfect Pearls in whatever color you prefer and then fill with water.  Give the bottle a shakey shake and you are ready to go.  If you like a little sparkle, just add a little powder.  If you like a lot of sparkle, add a little more.  I always start with a little and adjust as needed.
I used Tombow’s Xtreme Adhesive and Foam Tabs to hold everything together.  This is a great combo when you are using heavier paper like watercolor paper.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so we are making projects to show our support to our friends and family! For my project I made a Good Vibes Card.

 I paper pieced this dress form from Market Street Stamps using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. For all the papers and the doily I used the Tombow Mono Adhesive Permanent and for the dress form I used Tombow Foam Tabs. For the trim and flowers I used the Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.

Remember to check the girls, ladies!

Pink Halloween by Debbie Fisher

This week the DT is creating with pink in their projects in honor of it being Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Since it’s getting close to Halloween, I created this fun Skull Treat Box using the file from Cutting Café.

IMG_0065 (900x675)

I used Xtreme Adhesive to put the box together as you want a very strong adhesive so it doesn’t come apart. I also used Power Tabs for the buttons and bow.

Thank you for stopping by,


 

Think Pink with Marie Browning

thinkpink

October is THINK PINK month and just the time to create a page for my sister Teresa, a Breast Cancer Survivor.  The photos were taken at the Run for the Cure in Vancouver, and Teresa is the gal on the right beside the ribbon with sister Sharon on the left.

I used my new bright pink cutting board, trimmer and scissors from Westcott that actually inspired me to do this page! I started out with beautiful pink shades of cardstock and ‘Just the Edge’ cardstock strips from Bazzill and adhered my panels, strips and photos with the Dot Stamp Runner. The dot adhesive works especially nice with the long rick-rack strips as the adhesive is applied neatly to the very edge with no excess to mess up your page.

The ‘Walk, Run, Cure’ stamped panels were done with alphabet rubber stamps and pink Dual Brush Pens. I choose the colors 725 Rhodamine Red and 703 Pink Rose and used the brush tip to apply the color to the stamps. Mist a little water onto the stamps and stamp onto white cardstock. I also misted a little water onto the stamped images to further ‘run’ and distress the lettering. I colored the white cardstock paper with the ‘splashed background’ technique using the Dual Brush Pens and then cut out flowers using the Tattered Floral die from Sizzix.

The ribbon flowers are made using the Mono Multi Liquid Glue and Power Tabs and the rhinestones and flowers are attached to the page using Foam Tabs, Power Tabs (for the large flowers) and Mono Multi Glue. The pink awareness ribbon is held together and applied using Power Tabs.

Look at all the wonderful pink products from Tombow! Think Pink and let’s work together to abolish all types of cancers! Make sure to leave a comment in support!
