Hi there! This week the Tombow gals and I are using fabulous peel-off stickers from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Els sent us several sheets to play with and here are two of my favorites.
I love whimsy and decided to take these elegant gold ornaments and give them a touch of whimsy. I started by placing the ornament stickers on some 140# cold press watercolor paper and then I colored them with my Dual Brush Pens. I colored the different areas of the ornament with the following Dual Brush Pens colors: 093, 133 and 847 and then blended the color with a waterbrush. I used Mono Adhesive Dots to attach the layers together and a couple of Foam Tabs to pop up the ornament that is in the front. To finish off this card I added a wee bit of Mono Glue Pen to a few areas and sprinkled them with Elizabeth Craft Designs Warm Highlights glitter.
Stained Sticker Technique
For my next card, I used one of the beautiful floral stickers that Els sent. I had never seen the Dual Brush Pens used to color the solid portions of the sticker, but I wanted to give it a try. I am happy to say that I really like the way this turned out. Because the stickers have a slick, shiny surface I knew that the markers were going to resist the ink so as soon as I colored in the flower, I wiped off the ink with a dry cloth and created a stained effect on the gold portions of the stickers. I had to use darker markers for this technique and apply a few layers of each color. For the interior of the flower I used #847 and for the leaves I used #249. I used more of the Mono Adhesive Dots to hold all of the layers together and a few Foam Tabs behind the image panel to pop it up and add some dimension. I finished off the center of the flower with some Mono Aqua Adhesive and ECD Warm Highlights glitter.
