Tombow Collaboration--Fun with Pencils and Markers!

BannerGraphicToday, we have a blog hop using Tombow products, including a couple of wonderful prizes, so read on for your chance to win.
My project using these products is a Halloween card.


It was very easy to make.  All I had to do was stamp my Pumpkin Carving Rubber Stamp with Memento Ink on Mixed Media Paper.  These are products that were given to me by Stampendous for being on their design team.  Then, I tried out the Tombow Recycled Color Pencils, that I received as a gift from Tombow for participating in the hop this week.  I used a light, medium and dark color for each area.  This was a very relaxing experience, and the colors blended well.  I used a couple of layers to build up thick color.  Then, I moved to my Dual Brush Markers.  These markers are water based, and I love them so much that I purchased them in most of the available colors.  Today, I scribbled the colors 606, 665 and 679 on my Blending Palette.  Then, I used my water brush to pick up the colors and paint them onto the background.  The build up of colored pencils helped to resist the water in the spots where I accidentally painted over the lines.  To create even more texture, I colored over parts of the background with the pencils.  Then, I mounted the image on some card stock, and I was done.  Here is what those colored pencils look like:

Remember what I said about prizes?  There are two packages, which include:

  • Tombow Recycled Color Pencils 24 pack tin
  • A roll of Tombow Foam Tape
  • A Jumbo Perfectly Clear Handle
  • Your choice from Stampendous Create Fall, Create Christmas, Create Winter or Create a Poinsettia Cling Stamp set and Matching Dies
