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

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!

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!
