If you have not guessed it by now, you know I love Tombow products, I love the Tombow mono multi purpose glue and for a project like this you would need a lot of glue. You also know I love to make 3D projects.
This project took 15 sheets of cardstock , that is a lot of gluing. It took 5 days for me to make this project, working on other things of course
My little elf, Hope helped fill the cubby holes.
A laugh is a smile that bursts. This is one of my favorite stamps sets right now.The inks I used matched the paper perfectly for the bursts.
Back to Tombow products, The irojiten pencils are awesome Here are a couple of projects that I have made using the irojiten pencils. What is it that I love about them? They stay sharp, they are wax based , but do not leave a waxy build up.
Here are my three Tag girls
I have some exciting news, I participated in the "100 Days of Tombow". Last year was Tombow's centennial year and by my participating along with many other artist's they would donate $100 for each participant, to the Council of Arts Education, a national non profit dedicated to promoting and supporting art education and quality art programs nationwide Their goal was to raise $10,000 for this cause and they did it
the products used below are TOMBOW Irojiten color pencils in Rainforest Volume 1- pale tone 1
I also received , the Tombow dual brush set "GROOVY" collection - I love the colors - it comes with brown, green, orange, yellow, blue and red
I used every single color out of both packs, for this project
For the first girl I used. Narcissus P-3, for the crown. For the skirt I used coral and P-2) Aqua (P7) for the outline,
for the bodice and shoes I used lilac P-9. For the hair I used pigeon gray and a little bit of forget-me-not (P-4)
For the skin I used every color in the set. I was trying to get a dark skin tone, it worked! the skin came out tan looking.
For this gal I was going for the mono tone look but at the end, I decided to add the red on the bow, with the dual tip pens and the dots are made with the green dual tip pen
Now, for more more fun :
The background was so much fun to do. The images are from the Silhouette online store, Hexagon and flower. I gave it dimension using fiber paste mixed with ink
My girl image is from Julie Nutting, They all like thier outfits.
I used the dual pen brush end to ink up the stamp, for my sentiment. The card stock & stamps (Asian Fusion) are from PTI-Card Stock- plum pudding, simply chartreuse, and lavender moon Asian Fusion and my twine is from The Twinery. I also added a mini jeweled red, green and blued AC elements brad to the top of each tag.
Here is a little fun I had with white tags white ribbon and some shimmering paint and stamps ink and embossing powder
Ink blown through a straw to give a fun whimsy effect to cards
I took part in the sticky University program. I received a certificate and a T-shirt and the awesome XTREME adhesive. Wow was I impressed when this held the lapel pin bottom to the top. I absolutely love this product.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the projects that I have included for the design team call.
Have a blessed day Diana
