Splash Technique with Tombow

Greetings! The Stampendous Design Team is getting ready for a fantastic blog hop with Tombow. I love Tombow products, and I use them in many of my projects. Today, I am using their wonderful watercolor markers to share the Splash Technique with you.

I took a piece of watercolor paper and tore the top. I then stamped my skeleton and his top hat from the super fun Skeleton Style set, and I embossed it with black embossing powder. Then, I stamped and embossed my sentiment and bats, from the Spooky House set. Then I started to really play.

I pulled out a few of my Tombow Dual Brush watercolor markers and I scribbled on a large acrylic block. The colors I used were 985, 933, 636, 603, 055, and 025. Then I spritzed the block a couple of times with water. Then, I turned my watercolor paper over so that the images were face down, and I swept, dabbed, and tapped the paper across the acrylic block. There's no right or wrong way to do this, it's just a matter of how much coverage of color that you want. So simple!

I added some decorating tape to one side, and that was it! What an easy card to create. Think about all of the color possibilities, since there are 96 markers in the Tombow Dual Brush palette. So many options! Below is the list of ladies that are posting along with me today. Be sure to check them all out and leave some love!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
