This week the Tombow USA Blog has a challenge for you, so wake up and smell the flowers! The challenge is “May Flowers”!
You could win this awesome prize!!
For this challenge, I made a card using Tombow’s Recycled Color Pencils and my new Big Bold Blossoms Stamps!
I started by stamping the face on ivory cardstock. Then I stamped the flowers on white cardstock and cut them out.
Next I used the Recycled Color Pencils to color the flowers. I started with yellow in the center and worked my out, then I colored pink and finished with dark pink. When you color with pencils you should color in circles so you don’t get lines in your coloring.
I also colored a little bit of pink pencil on the cheeks of the face. There is no way to do that without leaving some circular marks. In the picture above, I pointed out the cheek color and the lines in the flower. No matter how hard I try, there are always some marks. And I have a solution! Use a paper towel and “buff” you coloring!
Just take the paper towel and put it around your finger and “buff” the coloring! It makes your coloring positively shine! And the Recycled Color Pencils by Tombow are AWESOME to use! They are so soft and they color wonderfully!
When I was done coloring and buffing, I cut a piece of patterned paper and attached the face to it with the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Pattern Adhesive. I also used it attach the flowers. I cut some of the leaves off of the flowers and adhered them in different areas too.
This was a super fun project to make and I love how it turned out!!
Now, it’s your turn!
