Whimsy Stamps and Tombow Collaboration - Day 3, Post 1

All week long Whimsy Stamps and Tombow will be joining forces to bring you some amazing inspiration combining products from these great companies! Be sure to visit both companies’ blogs each day this week to see all of the incredible projects the designers have created AND to enter the giveaways! 

Hello Everyone, Iris here today with my creations for the Whimsy Stamps and Tombow collaboration. For my first card I used the adorable Winter Wonderland clear stamp set illustrated by Krista Heij-Barber and the Slimline Marquee die.

I inked the background using Distress Oxide Inks in different blue tones and sprinkled on water and some white acrylic paint for a snow effect. The snowflakes and sentiment in the middle window were stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  

 I used several different media to color my images therefore I stamped the images with a hybrid ink onto white mixed media paper. To color the snowmen I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens, Tombow ABT Pro Alcohol Markers - Orange Tones and Tombow Colored Pencils 1500 Series
I love to use different media when I color images and these markers and pencils from Tombow worked all very well together and it was a joy to color these adorable images from Whimsy Stamps.

Here is a closer look on the images. I used the markers to lay down the base colors and went over it with the pencils to add some more depth and details.

 For my second card I used the Rounded Rectangles dies, Forest Majesty dies and the Winter Wonderland clear stamp set again.

The background on this card is blue glitter paper and the window was cut out using the Rounded Rectangles dies

 I used the Tombow ABT Pro Alcohol Markers - Orange Tones to color the Snowmans nose, scarf and gloves. For everythign else (including the birch trees in the background) I used the Tombow Colored Pencils 1500 Series.

  3. That first card is amazing. Second card, great idea to make a "frame" on the card. I never think to do that. I usually frame behind the image.

  4. Both are sweet cards! Love your coloring and showcasing of stamps, dies and coloring tools! Beautiful!!

  5. These are two snowman-riffic cards! I like the way you combined all the various Tombow markers together to color in the snowmen. They look great. Whimsy has some fun snowman stamps!

  6. Awwww, sweet cards. Love them both!
