Dual Brush Pens and Peel-offs are great card companions… by Marie Browning 2

Negative Image with Peel-offs

This technique is a fun and different way to use peel-offs and Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

My favorite Peel-offs come from Elizabeth Craft Design – the designs are beautiful with lots of open spaces for coloring.

Step 1: Place the peel-offs onto the paper panel. I like to use a piercing tool. Fine tipped tweezers also work to lift the peel-off.

Step 2: Color the peel-off and add color around the outside edges of the peel-off image.

Step 3: With the water mister, lightly mist the card so the colors blend. Let dry completely.

Step 4: When the panel is completely dry, use the piercing tool to remove the peel-offs. It’s important that the panel is dry or the paper may rip. Do not use a heat tool to dry this quickly; it tends to make the peel-offs stick more.

Step 5: Reattach the peel-off off centering it from the colored image. Leave blank, as in the ornament card or color as in the tree card.
