Tombow and Stampendous Collaboration


Hello! It's time for an exciting hop with Stampendous and Tombow! I am super excited about this because I use Tombow products all the time. I have been featuring their products on my blog all week, so please be sure to scroll back and see what I've made. Tombow was kind enough to send the entire Stampendous team their Recycled Pencils...it's a set of 24 beautiful color. Take a look!

Colored pencils are my favorite medium, so I was thrilled to get this set. And I was not disappointed. I have been using these pencils a lot since I've gotten them, and I will be sure to keep coloring with them! Since you are joining us this weekend.....

There will be 2 prize packages that 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
To win:
Have a US Mailing Address
“Like” TombowUSA on Facebook and Stampendous on Facebook

And comment on all the blog posts from both teams all week. Including our pre-game posts Mon-Thurs and our Weekend hop Fri-Sun.
We’ll give you until Tuesday, September 22 to get all those great comments in, then we’ll choose 2 winners on Sept 23rd.
Be sure to comment and tell us where you’re from, because our Australian Distributor The Stencil Specialists are sponsoring a prize for one friend “down under” to win a Stampendous Stamp, a Dreamweaver Stencil and a surprise goodie from their terrific stock of Stampendous merchandise!


I used the adorable (and apparently hungry!) Mint Nibbler House Mouse today. My new Tombow Recycled pencils were just perfect for coloring this guy up. The tones blend so nicely. And before you ask, I do not use any mineral spirits or other blending medium.Only the colored pencils themselves. Here's a closeup.


I used a simple sentiment from the Holiday Expressions set. The rest of the card is pretty simple, because I really wanted the mouse to be the focus and not have a lot of stuff to detract from him.



There are so many great people that are sharing projects today, so I don't want to keep you here too long. ;) But don't forget to check out my other projects this week, or even do a "Tombow" tag search for my blog. You'll see a ton of projects then! Thank you so much, Tombow, for doing this wonderful hop with us, and for the fantastical pencils. I love 'em! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
