enjoy this day….by melissa cash

 Hello and welcome to the weekend!  I am so happy to say that we have finally gotten some rain here in Central CA and is much needed.  Although most of the country has been freezing cold and in the snow, we have been unusually warm and dry here.
Today, I am sharing a card and tealight box that I created using a Watercolor Technique with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
I started with a bold image stamp from Impression Obsession called Solid Rose Cluster and inked it up using the following colors of Tombow Dual Brush Pens #452, 373, 133, 126.  I started with the lightest color on the flowers and then went in with a bit of the darker color, next I did the same thing for the leaves using the green markers.  I spritzed the stamp lightly and stamped it onto some white cardstock.  I always leave the stamp down for about a count of ten to allow the ink to absorb into the cardstock a bit.  I used Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock.
I used a Tombow Glue Pen to scribble random circle patterns onto each of the roses and sprinkled with Microfine Silk Warm Diamond Glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Now for the whammy!  I created this adorable little box following a tutorial from Pootles Papercrafts on You Tube.  You can check it out here.  I love making boxes and never, ever want them to come apart (especially when used as gifts) and I am thrilled beyond words to say that the new Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape worked perfectly to hold this little box nice and secure!
Hip, hip, hooray!  Can you tell I am excited?  I can’t wait for you to try this amazing new adhesive from Tombow. It really is the bomb diggity!
