Tombow and Avery Elle Blog Hop



HAPPY MONDAY! and welcome to the Tombow USA and Avery Elle Blog Hop! 


To follow along in the blog hop, I hope you have arrived here from the talented Caryn Davies blog, but if you have stumbled across my blog, please make sure you start the hop party directly at the Avery Elle Blog


Now on to my project!


I LOVE the Canopy Clear Stamp Set from Avery Elle for coloring with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens, so This was definitely a FUN project for me to complete - plus who doesn't LOVE glitter!

STEP ONE:
For me, the first step is ALWAYS a color scheme.  I placed the flower section of the Canopy Clear Stamp Set onto an acrylic block and stamped it about 8-10 times with black archival ink.  A brand new stamp normally takes 2-3 impressions before the image becomes crisp and clear.  Then I started selecting colors of Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  Once I was pleased with my selection of colors, I wrote in the number on the color swatch.  This allows me to stay organized.

STEP TWO:
Then we are on to coloring in the images.  I needed five of the canopy of flowers, so I colored while watching a movie with my niece and nephew.  Coloring is very relaxing!!

STEP THREE:
I roughly cut out the five canopy of flowers, selected some bright yellow and bright pink coordinating cardstock and then got busy glittering some chipboard letters!  Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue is excellent for glittering chipboard letters and this Lapis Glitter matches the Tombow Dual Brush Pen #452 perfectly!  My tip is to color the edges of your chipboard with the matching color of Dual Brush Pen, so the color is uniform.

STEP FOUR:
Measure and cut five rectangles 4 1/4" wide by 5 1/2" long from bright yellow cardstock. Measure up 1" from the bottom and to the center, then connect the center dot to each of the bottom edges to create a triangle.  Cut triangles out with scissors, add Tombow Foam Tape to the top edge and attach canopy of flowers for dimension. Attach glittered chipboard letters to banner with Tombow Foam Tape, then draw a dotted line to highlight the bottom edge with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #N15.  Cut 1" strips of bright pink cardstock, then punch with decorative edge punch.  Attach to bottom of banner with Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive. Trim excess cardstock flush with side of banner.

STEP FIVE:
Attach each banner to 60" length of lavender satin ribbon, leaving 12" at either end and 2" in between banners with Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.

Here is a close up detail of the "H" section of the HELLO banner! It's bright and sunny and I am going to hang it on my mantel to welcome family and friends.
