Hi there everyone! And happy Monday Punday!
My name is Devan and I normally work behind-the-scenes on the Tombow marketing team, but today I am here to show you how to create a punny little celebration card!
- Dual Brush Pens Colors 126, 098, 249, 636, 055, 725, 493, and 925
- MONO Twin Permanent Marker
- MONO Drawing Pencil
- MONO Dust Catch Eraser
- Paint Brush
- Mixed Media or Watercolor Paper
Sketch it out! I chose the pun “Lettuce Celebrate” with an adorable little head of lettuce. Using the MONO Drawing Pencil in 3H and the MONO Dust Catch Eraser to fix my mistakes – I sketched out my design.
Time for some color! My favorite thing about the Dual Brush Pens is that they are water-based so they can be used to create watercolor effects! Using Dual Brush Pens 126, 098, and 249, I randomly scribbled the various shades of green all around the lettuce. I then used a paintbrush and water to create the watercolor effect!
More color! Using the same watercolor technique, I added the Dual Brush Pens in colors 925, 493, 725, 055, and 636 to the word “lettuce” and to his little birthday hat.
Draw your outlines! Because the Dual Brush Pens are water-based, I used the MONO Twin Permanent Marker to outline so I wouldn’t get any mixing or blending where I didn’t want it. Lastly, I used the MONO Twin Permanent Marker to write over the word “celebrate!” And to spice it up a little I added some confetti using the fine tip of the Dual Brush Pens.
And there you have it! A cute little card to give to anyone in your life who is celebrating. We would love to see your Monday Punday creations so tag us on Instagram @TombowUSA!
