"Inspiring and honoring creativity"

Blog Hop with Hilary Kanwischer October 7, 2013

The fabulous Tombow Design Team is blog hopping this week with talented guest designer Hilary Kanwischer . If you just came from Jennie’s blog you are on the right track! If not, and you want a chance to win a prize, go back to Tombow’s Blog and follow the projects!


Isn’t this a great background? It was done with the blending palette, mister and green Dual Brush Pens using the splash technique. I then did a direct-to-stamp inking with blue hued Dual Brush Pens onto a cracked background stamp. The secret? It was done on glossy photo paper! (Thanks Rick for the idea!) If you want to learn more about this and many other techniques using the Dual Brush Pens, check out my new class Viva la Vivid Cards at My Creative Classroom.

IMG_1933This is the card I made with the background. The lizard was done in the same manner, direct-to-stamp coloring, misted and then stamped on glossy photo paper. Looks even better in real life! The dark blue cardstock panel was adhered to the background with the Permanent Adhesive Stamp Runner, the perfect adhesive for an excellent bond to glossy paper! The lizard panel was then popped up with Foam Tabs and paper leaves glued in with Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

    the background is spectacular. It’s too bad you can’t see more of it. The lizard is cute but he covers so much of the background that you worked so hard on
