Hey there and happy Monday. It is time for Jennie to share her challenge on the Tombow blog and Jennie has chosen a "Book" Theme.
For my project, I chose to make some Fall themed bookmarks.
I used one of my favorite Fall themed stamp sets from Reverse Confetti called Forever Fall. I love to color my stamps with Tombow's Dual Brush pens and wanted to give it a try with this set. I wasn't sure how well it would work because the stamps are clear and sometimes that can be a bit tricky. I loved how these turned out. I colored the images with the markers and then gave them a light spritz with water and stamped them onto some cream cardstock. I wanted to keep these very simple as I am going to make quite a few and donate them to our local library to give to the kids when they check out books.
A little tip I gave a few days ago and want to repeat because I used it again today.
Use some Tombow Mono Aqua on your twine to stiffen it up a bit as this allows it to be much easier to tie in a bow. The bow will really hold it's shape this way. To do this, I just squirt some Mono Aqua out onto a scrap of cardstock and run the twine through it, I use my fingers to lay the twine out nice and straight on my non stick craft mat and let it dry for a few minutes before I tie a bow or add to a project.
Now, how would you like to win this awesome prize pack?
Head on over to the Tombow blog for all of the details!
