Tombow and Stampendous BLOG HOP!

Hello and
welcome to the Tombow USA and Stampendous! Blog Hop!

 

You probably came here
from the wonderful blog of Wendy Price, but if you stumbled across my blog, please go to
the Stampendous! blog to start!

 

Now, on to my project!

 

 

The stamps the Tombow Design Team received from Stampendous! were so beautiful and winsome, so I created this lovely Blooming Box to feature the Stampendous! Cling Feminine Face #CRW169 – isn’t she beautiful?

 

Peel the Feminine Face stamp from the acetate (notice that there is a clear plastic cling material that the stamp is attached to) and place on clear acrylic stamp block.

 

Stamp the Feminine Face onto plain white cardstock and book paper with black archival ink, let dry.  I also received the Stampendous! Cling Beautiful Braid CRR247 stamp, which is gorgeous as well.

 

I then proceeded to pull out my Tombow Recycled Colored Pencils and create a sample color template on my white paper.  I used this as a guide and colored in both faces on the white paper and the book paper.

 

Originally, I was going to create 2 gift bags, but decided that these lovely ladies needed something more permanent, so I used the Walnut Hollow Card Box #1704op from my craft stash.  Stain the outside of the unfinished wood card box with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #126 Light Olive using random strokes, then go back across with a baby wipe and blend out all of the pen strokes to create an even layer of transparent color (I LOVE this technique!).

 

Next ,we are on to the embellishments – DIY Flowers from Petaloo, again from my stash.  Cover your work surface with an old towel and lay out a variety of flowers.  Color the flowers loosely with assorted colors of Tombow Dual Brush Pens then mist with water and let the magic happen!  The colors will blend into a beautiful watercolor effect.  Let dry for several hours, or use your heat tool if you are impatient, like me!

 

Cut out your Feminine Female and attach to top of box with Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue.  The MONO Aqua will not leave wrinkles in your paper, grabs fast, sets in just a few minutes and dries quickly.  Finish the cut edge of her neck with off white half pearls to create her very own necklace!

 

Dry fit your flowers onto the top of your card box to create a blooming head piece!  Once you are please with the composition, attach the bottom layer of flowers with Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue.  Attach the second and third layers with Tombow Xtreme Tabs, to not only create dimension, but also to create a permanent bond to your box lid.  Finish the flowers with colored half pearl centers (or you could also use rhinestones).

 

Embellish the edge of the card box with lace trim attached with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.  Remember to roll out the adhesive, then snap it off at the end.  The Xtreme Adhesive is 5 times stronger than regular adhesive runners and is my favorite!  The finishing touch is a shadow on the left side of the face made with several strokes of the Tombow Dual Brush Pen #126 Light Olive.

 

Now, on to the FUN STUFF!  We have two amazing prizes!

  • I love the technique you used on the box and your faces are colored beautifully! I agree that they needed a permanent place to reside because they are so pretty! TFS!

  • Wow!! That's gorgeous! I love all the flowers that you used. It reminds me of the hats they wear in England. I wouldn't have thought to use those adhesives on this project. It is good to know how well they work.

  • Wowzers! This is such a neat box and you have great tips for us all. I think Feminine Face enjoys her more permanent spot. 😉 Thank you for playing along in the hop with us this weekend!
