Taylored Expressions & Tombow Blog Hop October 23, 2013


Welcome to the Taylored Expressions and Tombow blog hop, if you just came from Stephanie’s Blog you are on the right track!

IMG_2054I sure had some great fun with Taylored Expressions Toil & Trouble Stamp set! There were so many elements to have some wicked fun with! I created this invitation for an evening with friends using the stamp set and colored with Tombow Irojiten Colored Pencils.Β  The invitation details are computer generated, printed out and shaded with the Irojiten Pencils.

IMG_2055The panels are attached using the Dots Adhesive Stamp Runner and Foam Tabs for a dimensional look. Look closely at the bottles, they were outlined with the #977 Dual Brush Pen (a color which matched the background paper) before cutting out. This results in a ‘shadowed’ image that blends into the background beautifully. IMG_2057It’s easy to be creative when you start with excellent products! Now go an see what Jen has designed on her blog!
