Happy Friday! Whew, we made it through another week. Yeah! Now that Valentine's Day has come and gone for another year, I am starting to think about Spring. I have to say, we really haven't had Winter here yet. Although I am not a fan of cold, rain and snow. We really need the water, so I say bring it on!
This week on the Tombow Blog, the design team is focusing on working with some of the fine art pencils that Tombow carries. I have created two cards using the Irojiten Color Dictionary Pencils.
For this card, I stamped the pretty outline flower/leaf from the Our Craft Lounge Pretty Petals set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and then colored them in using some of the green, yellow and orange pencils in the Irojiten Seascape set. I blended the pencils out with some odorless mineral sprits and then glitzed the flowers up a bit with some Diamond Stickles. I stamped Happy Birthday from the Our Craft Lounge Big Birthday Wishes set in black ink onto a scrap of blue print cardstock and layered it to the front of the card using Tombow Foam Tabs. I used Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots, Roller to adhere all of the layers together and a Tombow Power Tab to fasten the button to the front of the card.
Using the same Irojiten Seascape set for this card I stamped the Classic Fabric Background from Hero Arts in Alabaster Fluid Chalk ink onto some black cardstock and then colored over the white areas with the pencils. After I was finished coloring, I spritzed the black panel with some pearl shimmer spray. It is so pretty in person! The aqua panel is raised up with some Tombow Foam Tabs and the rest of the card was secured together with Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots, Roller.
Would you like to have one these cards? I would love to send you one. Just leave me a comment letting me know which one is your favorite and I will pick two winners, one for each card. For an extra chance, I would love it if you "LIKE" my INKclinations Facebook page. Just come back here and let me know you "LIKED" me. :)
I will randomly pick the winners on Feb 22, 2012 and announce them here and on INKclinations Facebook on Feb 23rd.
