Blog Hop with Stacy Julian September 16, 2013

This week I am blog hopping with the talented Stacy Julian and the fabulous Tombow design team! If you just came from Jennie’s blog you are on the right track!

IMG_1845This week I travel to Mall of America in Minneapolis for ScrapFest! I will be teach two different card classes; here’s a card from the Holiday Card class that uses cardstock from Fancy Pants Etcetera Collection.

IMG_1832We start by learning how to draw a snowman and then add the doodles. We then jazz them up with brilliant color using Irojiten Colored PencilsRetro Dual Brush Pen set and Blending Kit.

IMG_1827I like to use a light blue Irojiten Pencil for shading the snowman, a nice soft effect and easier for beginners to shade.

IMG_1828I then use the brush tip of the Dual Brush Pens to color in the accessories. The snowman gets a light blue ‘halo’, and then cut out and attached to the card using Foam Tabs.

Blog Hop_SJNext go to Stacy’s Blog and see what she has created for you using Tombow products! Be sure to like both Tombow USA and Stacy Julian on Facebook! Then comment on the posting to win a new Blending Kit, Retro Dual Brush Pen Set and Irojiten Color Dictionary Pencils Volume 2.

    great card and tips Marie! I will have to try my hand at creating my own snowman. What permanent pen/marker did you use for the broad outlining of the snowman?

      Hi Debbie! I used the new mono twin from Tombow – I didn’t link it because they don’t have it up for sale yet – works great with the markers! Marie
