Hi there! Well Fall is definitely in the air here in Central CA, the temps have dipped into 40's and we have had to fire up the wood stove to keep our tootsies warm.
Today I am sharing a card I created with one of my favorite techniques that I call Watercolor Stamping. Tombow Dual Brush Pens are perfect for this technique because they have a nice brush tip on one end making it very easy to color directly onto the stamp.
I think it is important to have a good quality paper for this technique and I like Arches 140# cold press watercolor paper. I chose to use the Cattails #3214K from Penny Black and I colored the leaves/stems with Tombow Dual Brush Pens in #076 and #098 and the cattails in #947 and #993. After you have brushed the colors onto your stamp, spritz the stamp with a fine mist of water. Immediately stamp onto your watercolor paper, hold stamp in place for a count of ten as this will help the ink settle into the watercolor paper.
I find when I use watercolor paper I like to use a strong adhesive like Tombow Power Bond to adhere the paper to the next layer. For each of the subsequent layers I used Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots as it is perfect for layering paper to paper.
I finished off the card with some Diamond Stickles on the cattails and some green ribbon ties.
Now, for the fun part. Tombow has a great giveaway this week. You could win the following:
