~Day 2…Hopping with Tombow USA and Precious Remembrance~

Saturday, September 6, 2014

Hello, and welcome back for day 2 of the Tombow / Precious Remembrance Blog Hop.  If you missed out yesterday…take a look at the sweet prize package these two companies are offering up at the close of the hop...


Yep…someone will win Precious Remembrance's Coffee LoveOh So Fun, and Thanks stamp sets, and Tombow's Dual Brush Pen set (Retro), along with both the MONO Aqua Liquid Glue and the MONO Glue Pen.  
For today's project, I chose one of my favorite little sentiments from the PR Thanks set


 You can see I created a sunny space behind the sentiment.  (All the colors used on today's project are from the Jellybean Dual Pen set.)  I scribbled down a little bit of the yellow and orange on one of my acrylic blocks.  Then, using my aqua-flo brush, I started by applying the lighter yellow, and then deepened the center with the orange.  I stamped the sentiment on top of this sunny little area, using a dab of Post-it tape to cover the heart.  After stamping in black (minus the heart),  I cleaned the stamp, inked up the heart only with one of the pink Dual Pens, lined the image back up, and stamped.  (Glossy Accents was added to the heart.)
Then I had fun and using some blue, green, and violet Dual Pens, and more water on some little die cut clouds…


That little strip of glittered paper was done so easily with the Liquid Glue.  The broad end of the dispenser has tiny little flexible 'fingers' that spread the glue thinly and evenly all the way down my skinny little strip.  Then, I used the opposite end to dab the tiniest bit of glue on the sequins.  Oooo…I DO love this glue…SO much control with the fine tip side…it's a new favorite!!!


No…I'm not a big 'marker girl'…but I found working with these Dual Pens is such a forgiving process…you can't help but have fun and feel good about the finished product!  Hope you like it, too!

Now, if you're following the hop, you came to me from Melissa Chipperfield's blog, and if you missed her or are just starting the hop, you may want to head back to Tombow USA for the complete hop list.  Otherwise, continue on with Jennie Garcia's blog.
To be eligible for the prize package above, you'll need to comment on all the Designers blogs, as well as the company blog, and you'll also want to 'like' Tombow USA and Precious Remembrance on Facebook!

Enjoy the rest of the hop!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
