100 Days of Tombow Centennial Celebration

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!! It's been beautiful here - sunny and low 80's. We were supposed to get some rain but so far, the sun is shining :)

I am so honored to have been asked by Tombow to participate in 100 Days of Tombow Centennial Celebration. In March of this year, Tombow kicked off its "100 Days of Tombow" program at the National Art Education Association Conference in Forth Worth, Texas. They asked 100 different bloggers across America to share a project using Tombow's products. For every submission by a blogger, Tombow donates $100.00 worth of products to the Council for Arts Education, a national nonprofit dedicated to promoting and supporting art education and quality art programs nationwide, with an overall goal of $10,000 worth of product.

The package I received included Irojiten Color Pencils in Light Grayish Tone 1, Dual Brush Pens in Jelly Bean and a Stamp Runner. I absolutely love the stamp's ergonomic so it fits in my hand perfectly, and it functions as either a traditional tape runner or a stamper. And I love pink :)

I used the Dual Brush pens to color a Tim Holtz dragonfly stamp from the Classics #1 set. The pens stayed wet long enough for me to color in all of the design and then stamped perfectly. I love the look of a multicolored stamp :)  The tag base is a Sizzix Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate die, with paper from Basic Grey Out of Print. The stamp is on a Spellbinders Labels 2 die and it was attached with the stamp runner. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my dear friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces.

I tried the same technique on another card, coloring the sentiment as well. The stamp is from the Tim Holtz Floral Tattoo stamp set. The sentiment is from StampingScrapping Label Accents stamp set. The base is a Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals Large die with paper from Bo Bunny's Garden Girl stack. The next layer is a Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large die, the edges inked with TH Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I wanted to try out the pencils, too, so I created two cards, one using the markers and the other the pencils. The base of both cards and the next layers are Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles dies, and the stamp is a Dylusions Mini Couture stamp.

It's a little hard to see in the pic, but I outlined the black layer with a Irojiten Color Pencil in Wax Yellow. The stamp was stamped with Versafine Onyx ink and colored in with Irojiten Color Pencils in Sea Fog, Campanula Blue and Porcelain Blue. The pencils have a very creamy texture and they apply smoothly. They are awesome!! The banner tag is a Spellbinders Nested Lacy Pennants die, colored in with Campanula Blue. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Fashionable Friends stamp set. Everything was attached with the Tombow Stamp Runner.

For the next card the stamp was colored in with the Dual Brush markers and a TH waterbrush. The color flowed beautifully with the water brush.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
