Lovely Hello From Concord & 9th

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello friends!  It’s Lisa here with you today and I have a bright floral hello to share with all of you.  Since Concord & 9th is celebrating their 2 year anniversary, and they have released some pretty amazing new goodies (which you can get now in the store!) I just had to pull out some of my favorite stamps to share with you…

To create this card I started by stamping my background panel with the Sunshine Turnabout stamp set and my Altenew inks from the Rock Collection.  Next, I worked on the floral image from the Hello Lovely Stamp Set.  Normally I find some way to color this image in as I’ve always been a bit timid about using the matching water colored images in the set.  This time I set my fears to the side, and let things get messy.  I will admit that I did use some masking to keep too many of the colors blending, but for the most part I let it mix freely.  To do this I colored these images in with my Tombow markers and repeatedly stamped them until they were covering the flowers the way I wanted them to.

Once the image was completely colored I cut the whole thing out.  I then adhered it with a small piece of vellum to my sunshine background.  For my sentiment I embossed it with white embossing powder and adhered it with foam adhesive.  The card was finished off with some sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope to see your projects in our challenges!  They are fun to play along with and you can win prizes!

Happy Crafting!

Thank You, with Tombow & Lawn Fawn

Written by Valerie Ward. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

I was THRILLED when I saw a couple weeks ago that MarkerPop (MP) is carrying Tombow Dual Brush Pens! You see, long, long ago, Tombows were the first coloring medium I ever used when I started stamping & coloring. I loved them then, but I stopped using them because Copics entered my world next and took over my heart, and also because MP didn’t carry them…BUT THEY DO NOW!! So this month’s Watercoloring focus gave me the perfect excuse to take out my Tombows again, and rekindle our relationship (lol)!

Here’s a great video by Tombow demonstrating different ways to use these markers:

For my card, I pulled out a lovely older Lawn Fawn set, Flutter By.

I stamped the images with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink (available in this mini ink pads set) onto Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. There are many ways to color with these markers. For this project, I wanted bold color; so added the ink directly onto the paper, then used the Colorless Blender N00 to pull the ink out into the image which creates a lighter tone and shadowing effect. You can see this technique in this next Tombow video starting at 1:03:

When I was done coloring them, I die cut the images out. I decided to make thIs card a Thank You card, so I used the Lawn Fawn Thank You Border die for the sentiment. I cut that sentiment 3 times and glued them all together using my Fine Point 1mm X-Press IT Glue Pen to create a “thick” sentiment for added depth. I mounted the sentiment onto a banner cut from the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners die set.

The background paper is from My Favorite Thing’s 6×6 Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Paper Pack, and I die cut it using the largest die from Lawn Fawn’s STAX Scalloped Rectangle Cut Set

For some sparkle, I painted the butterfly with my Zig Clear Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Pen Marker. Then I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Cupped Sequins in 4mm, 6mm, and 10mm.

I will definitely be using these markers again! FYI, you can get them in Sets of 10, or in singles. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I’ve encouraged you to check these beauties out!

A Clean and Simple Watercolor Featuring Tombow Markers

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It is Lisa here with you all today and I have a very clean and simple card to share with you today that incorporates layered stamping with watercoloring.  Most often layered stamps are used for their crisp lines and well obvious layers.  When you add watercoloring to these images it tends to soften layers, and depending on how much water you add it can even mix the layers more than desired.  For my card I chose to stamp the images using my Tombow Markers instead of ink pads, and this allowed me to have a little more control of how and where any blending would occur once I added clean water…

To create this card I first started with the stems of the flowers.  I loved that by using the markers I was able to achieve a two toned look without much effort.  I then went in with a brush and clean water to blend and smooth out the colors.  Next came the leaves, and finally the flowers on top.  For each of these I went back over each layer with a brush and clean water, making sure that the first layer was completely dry before adding my next.

The Timless Tulips by Sunny Studio also had the perfect sentiment for my card so I stamped it with Versafine ink.  I finished the card off with Distress Ink in Tumbled glass to give it a soft blue background.  To tie in the watercolor look I added a few drops of water to the background and blotted them off.

If watercoloring seems too “messy” or “uncontrollable” for your tastes then using markers such as Tombow is a fantastic option for you!  I can’t wait to see what you create with this technique, and feel free to add it to our latest challenge, where we are asking you to watercolor people or animals.

Happy Crafting!
