Here’s how to create Watercolor Pumpkin Place Cards for Thanksgiving:

STEP ONE

Create splash background papers by scribbling a variety of Dual Brush Pens (757; 837; 885; 905; 993; 933; 925 and 946) onto the Blending Palette, then spray generously with the Mister – these can both be found in the Tombow Blending Kit.  Place the shiny side of your inkjet glossy photo paper into the color.  Shift slightly and peel back to reveal the splash marbled effect.

STEP TWO

Trace 6″ circle using a template (bowl or plate) onto the chipboard and cut out with scissors.  For each pumpkin, trace eight circles onto the splash backgrounds with the broad tip of the MONO Twin Permanent Marker.

STEP FIVE

Cut a 1″ strip from the bottom of each circle, so the pumpkin can stand up.

STEP SIX

Apply Xtreme Permanent Adhesive to one side of the folded circle, then attach the second folded circle.  Tombow’s Xtreme  Permanent Adhesive is five times stronger than traditional adhesive runners, just remember to roll to apply, then swipe tip to the side for a clean application.  Repeat until all eight circles have been attached.  If the back of the photo paper is visible, trim with scissors.

STEP SEVEN

Create a green splash background with Dual Brush Pens (158; 195 and 173).  Draw two leaf shapes with MONOTWIN, then cut out with scissors.  Attach, back to back, with Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.  Draw a pumpkin stem on to kraft colored cardstock, then cut out with scissors.

STEP EIGHT

Create details on the pumpkin stem with Dual Brush Pen 992.  Write the name on the leaf with Fudenosuke Twin Tip black.  The tip of this Fudenosuke is the softest and easiest to letter with, especially on the slick, glossy surface of the photo paper.

With sharp, pointed scissors, cut a slit at the top of the pumpkin to insert the stem.
