april showers bring may flowers….by melissa cash

Hi there!  This week Jennie has challenged us to created something based on her
“April Showers” theme.
 I couldn’t help but think of all of the beautiful flowers that bloom after a good Spring rain.
I watercolored this beautiful Penny Black Promise Me #4384K  image with Tombow Dual Brush pens onto some Canson 140# Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper.  This is such an easy technique and you should give it a try….soon!
Color directly onto a bold image stamp (such as this one) with your Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then spritz the stamp 2-4 times (but don’t over saturate) press stamp to paper and hold there for about a count of 10-12 to allow the ink to soak into the paper just a bit.
When you lift the stamp you will have a beautiful image to embellish as you would like.  I added some glitter to the flower for a little sparkle!  What girl doesn’t like a little sparkle?
I used Tombow’s Xtreme Glue Tape to adhere the purple embossed panel to the base card and Tombow Foam Tabs to adhere the watercolor panel to the embossed panel.  Added a ribbon and pretty sentiment from the Penny Black Special Wishes #30-229 set.
Be sure to play along with the challenge and you could have a chance to win this awesome prize pack:

You have until  Monday April 7th at midnight to participate!

Remember that voting starts on Tuesday April 8th so tell your friends to vote!

Winner will be announced on Wednesday April 9th!

Last but not least you can win: The NEW Tombow Xtreme Permanent AdhesiveTombow 


April Showers by Debbie Fisher

This week on Tombow is our challenge week and Jennie Garcia is our hostess. She chose “April Showers” as her theme and for some reason this one really stumped me. Maybe because it’s been so long since we’ve seen rain I forgot what it looked like! LOL!!

Then it hit me and I decided to share this card I designed for a bridal SHOWER that I am hosting in APRIL for my DIL2B. Ü The jar template is from Cutting Cafe’s Jar Shaped Card & Shaker Card Cutting Files.

I used Mono Dots Adhesive Runner for the lid. This is especially helpful with such tiny pieces. to hold down the pieces while I added the adhesive, I used Mono Removable Adhesive to all the pieces on a scrap piece of paper and then just added the Dots Adhesive all at once. The rest of the pieces were adhered down using Mono Adhesive Permanent.

I created the label on the computer downloading a chalkboard background and then typing in Bridal Shower with a chalkboard font. Kassy is decorating the wedding with mason jars and is a teacher, so I was trying to combine the two in the invite.

The card opens from the top and on the inside is all the necessary info.

Why not come and play along with us this week for a chance to win some fabulous prizes? Go HERE to upload your creation…any thing that says “April Showers” to you.

You have until  Monday April 7th at midnight to participate! Remember that voting starts on Tuesday April 8th so tell your friends to vote! Winner will be announced on Wednesday April 9th!

Jennie’s “April Showers” Challenge by Marie Browning

Great theme Jennie! I have LOTS of experience with rain! Living in a rainforest on the west coast makes me an expert! You would think I would get tired of dark and wet days but I actually love the rain!

I made my rain inspired piece on a page in my journal. I started with covering the blending palette with Dual Brush Pen colors. I used N60 Cool Gray 6, N55 Cool Grey 7 and 533 Peacock Blue. Then I sprayed the palette using the mister and then turned it over onto my page to create a splashed base.

IMG_3478

While it was still a bit damp, I made the raindrops by pushing down the brush tip of the N60 pen onto the paper. I made more raindrops when the colored splash had dried as well.

I then drew a Zentangle Inspired flower onto the page and added the Dr. Seuss quote from the “the Cat in the Hat”; “The sun did not shine. It was too cold to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet day.” This rainy background would also be great on a scrapbook page or a background for a stamped card.

Tombow Challenge: April Showers!

Happy Monday!! I am hosting the Tombow Challenge for this month and the theme is April Showers! 

To play with us just do a project with this theme. It can be whatever you want: a card, scrapbook layout, project life layout, smash book page, you can alter your boots or your umbrella! Just have fun with it! 

For the background I used a cool technique where I write with a Tombow Dual Brush Pen on a Blending Pallet and then I used the mister on top of the scribble to make it a colorful little puddle and then I drip it on the paper. It’s like watercolors but a lot less messy. I used pink and blue dual brush pens and also a little of Mister Huey’s Blizzard Mist to add some shimmer.

 I embossed a Peachy Keen Stamps Face on Vellum and sewed around the cloud shape I made. I left a little space open to add some sequins on the inside and then I sewed it to close it. You may wonder how did I glued the vellum if you can’t see the adhesive!! I used the NEW Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive! Which is one of the prizes you can win if you participate on this challenge!

I also sewed a bit on the bottom to mimic raindrops and the added some sequins with the Mono Aqua Liquid Glue, to glue the stars from May Arts I used the New Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive

 For my second project I made a project life using the photo that inspired this challenge!  

Here is Miss Cloud again with the sequins and glued on to the card with the New Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive! I also did the watercolor splatter effect here with the Tombow Dual Brush Pen

 I made a confetti pocket!  

Here I glued a star with the New Tombow Xtreme Adhesive and I glued the bow I made with the Tombow Power Tabs.

 Here I just wrote some journaling with my typewriter. I used the Tombow Mono Removable Adhesive (one of the prizes) to glue this card to a bigger paper while I typed.

 Here I just used washi tape, stickers, enamel dots and a cut from my Silhouette. 

 


Okay to recap:

The theme is April Showers!

You have until  Monday April 7th at midnight to participate!

Remember that voting starts on Tuesday April 8th so tell your friends to vote!

Winner will be announced on Wednesday April 9th!

Last but not least you can win: The NEW Tombow Xtreme Permanent AdhesiveTombow Mono Multi Liquid GlueTombow Mono Dots Adhesive Runner and Tombow Mono Removable Adhesive.

 

Can’t wait to see your creations!

Have Fun!
