april showers bring may flowers….by melissa cash 1

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
