I created this sweet card using our new Bottle It UpPetals and Stems clear stamps and some of our new inks - Lemon Grass, Pixie, Orchid and Sugar Plum (stamped off once to give a softer look).  I took a wet paintbrush and touched the tip of the blue marker in Tombow's Soda Pop Dual Brush pen set and used it to gradually paint the color into the bottle image.  I love the soft look that I was able to achieve.  It is so pretty in person.  I used the same technique to shade and ground the bottom of the bottle with the grey marker.  I taped the front card panel down using Tombow's new Xtreme Adhesive.  This tape is strong!!  It will hold wood, metal bits, fabric, glass and rubber!!!  Amazing!



Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Have a great day!

Adorable card. I just finished the hop and I loved it. It has been a while since I was so inspired by so many products and techniques. Both companies and their DT did a great job.

What a great blog hop! I just loved all the cards and projects! Love the stamps and dies. Tombow in my opinion had the best glue. I am really loving the colors of their markers. I'd love to have some of that really sticky for the Veneer piece.
What great ideas! Thank you to all the ladies for sharing such great ideas.
Happy Valentines Day!

Sweet card, thanks for the chance to win !

lynda said...

I'm going to have to get some of that extra strong adhesive. I despise when my projects don't stay together! I like that it's a tape & not a liquid.

Katie said...

Really cute card! Love your marker coloring. Great hop, I learned some new things and saw some stamp sets that I liked too. Thanks for sharing.
