Hey Tombow friends, this is Jennie! Today, I’ll show you how to color hair using the NEW Tombow ABT PRO Markers. The NEW Tombow ABT PRO are alcohol-based markers with two tips. The brush tip is perfect for coloring stamps like these Whimsy Stamps. You can also use it for illustrated images.
- Tombow ABT PRO Alcohol Based Markers
- Patterned paper
- Tombow MONO Adhesive + Permanent
- Mixed media or marker paper
- Die cutting machine and dies
- Sewing machine (optional)
Start with the lightest color. Leave a space where the light hits the hair. In this image, the light comes from the viewer’s point of view.
You should pick at least three colors for the hair. You will use the medium color from the roots to the light, leaving a little space to let the lightest color show.
Use the darkest color from the root to the light, letting a space to show the light and medium colors.
Go back over everything with the lightest colors. This will blend the colors. You could color everything including the light spot but I like to leave that color break.
To put the card together, I used the Tombow MONO Adhesive + Permanent. I also added a shaker inside the card. For shaker cards, you have to make a sandwich. First the mat, then the paper with the stamped image, then the shaker pocket and then the top. For the top, I cut a square of pattern paper. Then, I used a metal die to cut a window. After assembling the top of the card, I used my sewing machine to add a little more texture. To finish it, I added a sticker and glued everything on the card.
I hope you enjoyed this holiday card!
