Stamp girl with flowers, “for you” and “mom” with black pigment ink and heat emboss with clear powder on white cardstock. Working DTP (direct-to-paper) add a highlighted rectangle over the sentiment with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #090. Add color to the remaining image, but do not worry about blending or highlights as there will be attachments added on top. Set aside.
Stamp the girl with flowers on watercolor paper with black pigment ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Color and trim the image. Skin tones: 800, 723, Hair: 090, 912, 991, Flower Pot: 133, 158, 912, Roses: 133, 158, 725, 755, Dress: 443, 452.
To create an overlay for the skirt, ink the dress portion of the image with black pigment ink and stamp on vellum. Heat emboss with clear powder. Color the reverse side of the stamped image with Tombow Dual Brush Pen 443. Trim the skirt as shown.
Using the stamped image on the white cardstock as a guide, align and attach the trimmed watercolor image on top. Use Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue under all parts except the flower pot and roses. Under these two portions place a Tombow Foam Tab. Hint: For a slightly less elevated look, cut the thickness of one tab in half, attach to the image and then “stamp” adhesive on the exposed cut portion with the Tombow Permanent Adhesive Stamp Runner. The vellum skirt was attached with a small portion of Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive placed at the waist of the dress.
The fine-tip ends of Tombow’s Dual Brush Pens are great for adding tiny doodle dots. To hide the raw ends of the ribbon, adhere the decorative loop with Tombow’s Permanent Adhesive Stamp Runner before attaching the remaining artwork.
Mat the artwork with colored cardstock and attach to the scalloped base with Tombow Foam Tabs.
A fun gift tag to attach to flowers or a perennial plant given to mom on Mother’s Day.
