Stay Brave by Daniella Hayes 2

When I work, I always make more than one thing.  If I already have paints, inks, stamps,etc. out, I might as well use them up.  Sometimes I make multiple cards, or a card and tag, or a tag and a canvas background.  I just hate to waste.  For example, I always pour out too much paint.  No matter how hard I try to pour out just the right amount, it never works. Then I have to pour out more and I have too much.  So, I use it for something else.  
Last week, I posted a mixed media card with a tutorial for the Tombow USA blog.  This week, I’m showing what I made with my leftovers.



This card was made with the same materials and the same instructions as last week.  Go HERE if you want too see them again.  The stamps are different this time.  The woman stamp is a Dylusions “Survivor” stamp and the “Stay Brave” stamp is by Dina Wakley.

I started with my background and used my FAVORITE Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Pattern Adhesive to adhere the papers to the card.  The “Stamp Runner” is fabulous because you can use it like an adhesive runner OR you can hold it vertically and stamp adhesive in one spot!  Pretty cool!  Next, I stamped my images and cut them out.  

Just like last week, I got my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  I used 2 different sets of them, Brights and Manga Shonen.  I used all of the blue and green markers from both sets.  I scribbled the colors onto my craft mat and used my Blender Pen to pick them up and apply them to my stamped image.  You can mix the inks or use one at a time.  The Blender Pen gives a watercolor look to your coloring.  And it will not get ruined by the ink.  Just use the ink on the pen until it is gone and you are ready to go!!  Every 10 marker set comes with a Blender Pen!

I love how light her eyes came out!  I also LOVE mixing and making my own colors!!

I added Tombw 3D Foam Tabs to the back of her and added her to the card.

Thanks so much for visiting today!!  I hope you will try these Tombow products for yourself.  I promise, you will not be disappointed!!

    I. Love. Your. Card! Awesome! I’m going to shamelessly admit that I do not own ANY kind of craft supplies. I would love to try my hand at making just ONE card, any card. I look forward to seeing what you designers create. TYFS!
