Stampendous and Tombow.....

I'm excited to be hopping along with Stampendous and Tombow this weekend! I had a blast experimenting with the Tombow markers and found a few fun ways to use them. 

To create the background paper, I scribbled blue marker on a nonstick craft sheet, spritzed with water and placed my white cardstock down in the ink. 

When it was dry, I colored one of the Yule Diamonds with the same shade of blue marker, spritzed the stamp with water and stamped onto my cardstock. I was able to get 2 or 3 stamped images, each image getting a bit lighter. 

The last way I used the markers was to color in this cute reindeer. I scribbled color on an acrylic stamp mount and picked it up with a waterbrush. I colored the entire image in this fashion. 

I used 837, 969, N35 and 528 in the Tombow  Muted Palette to color the reindeer and background. 

Supplies Used: Stampendous (Deer Stole Cling,Yule Diamonds Clear, Lime and Crystal Microglitter ), Tombow (Muted Palette), SEI sticker

Be sure to comment on all the designers in the list below. A winner will be announced Monday, November 24th at 11:30 am PT. A complete list of rule can be found HERE.

Clear Scraps and Kaiser Craft

This week the Clear Scrap team is pairing up with Kaiser Craft. I was excited when I discovered the large circle in the XL Dots fits the Kaiser Craft Celestial pattern paper perfectly! 

I randomly stenciled a bit of white acrylic paint on the XL Dots with the Quarterfoil Mascil. To keep the pattern light, I sponged off most of the paint before applying it to the acrylic. 

I fussy cut the butterflies and roses from the Honey Chai pattern paper. I layered it on the front of the XL Dot and added foam adhesive on the back of the acrylic. This allowed the Clear Scrap acrylic to be raised slightly towards the middle, showing off the stenciled design. 

Supplies Used:
Clear Scraps XL Dots,  Quarter Foil MascilKaiserCrafts Blubelle and Honey Chai Collections
Beacon Zip Dry Adhesive
Zig Marker
