A Colorful Time Of Year


Stampendous and Tombow have joined together to bring you a three day Blog Hop with a chance to win prizes! All you need to do is comment on the Designers Blogs listed below. 


 My card today was made using white glossy paper and coloring it with Tombow Dual Brush Pens from the Bright collection.  Here is how it was made:

1.  To color the grapes purple and pink markers were scribbled on a craft mat and spritzed it with water. Then place a piece of glossy white cardstock, glossy side down onto the marker scribbles and lift.  If there are any white spots you can place it back down in the puddle.  Let dry.


2.  Do the same using yellow and green markers for the leaves and yellow and orange for the background panel. Let dry.
3.  Once dry stamp the purple panel with the grapes from the Jumbo Cling Rubber Grapes and the green panel with leaves using Tuxedo Black Memento. 
4.  Stamp the background panel with the swirl by coloring directly onto the stamp with an orange marker.
5.  Now it's time to Frantage! Sprinkle Aged Copper Embossing Enamel on the background panel and heat from underneath.  Then sprinkle additional Embossing Enamel in the bottom left and upper right corners and heat again from underneath.
6.  Glue the grapes and leaves onto the background panel then wrap the left side with gold cord.  Layer onto a purple card.
