I'm delighted to be this week's featured designer for Tombow, and to celebrate we're having a blog hop! (Hop list below.) You should also know that along with the hop, Tombow has a prize offering. Be sure to leave a note on each designer's blog for your chance to win!
Now, for the details of my card... I stamped Fishin' with Dad on watercolor paper using black StazOn ink. I then used Tombow dual-brush markers and a waterbrush to color the image. To get a soft watercolor look, I scribbled the markers onto the Tombow blending palette and picked up the color with my waterbrush. This allowed me to apply the colors much like traditional watercolors.
Once the image was colored and die cut, I applied a thin bead of Aqua Liquid Glue to the edge of the panel and smeared it a bit with my fingertip. Then I used a spoon to add an ultra fine dry glitter to the wet glue, and tapped off the excess glitter. I also applied Aqua Liquid Glue to the fishing net, and applied glitter the same way.
The background of my card was made using the fishy-fishy line image from the Lure the Best cling mount set. I stamped the fish over the entire panel with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Stampendous Kaleidoscope embossing powder. I then randomly colored some of the fish with various light blue Tombow dual-brush markers, to give a little more visual interest to the panel.
Now, get ready for a wonderful dose of inspiration and check out what the other designers created for the hop. Have fun!!
I hope you enjoy the hop! Don't forget to leave comments as you go to be sure you're entered for the prize package! Tombow will announce the winner on their blog, on Monday June 16th at 3:30 P.M. EST.

There's a new Mix-Ability Challenge posted in the challenge forum at SplitCoastStampers! The challenge is called Some Like It Hot (Mix72), and it's hosted by me! The challenge calls for you to pull out your heat tool and use heat reactive mediums on your project.
The idea behind the Mix-Ability Challenge is to make mixed media simple and approachable, and to let you experiment using things you already have. Each Friday a new challenge is hosted, but there is no time limit, so you can participate whenever you'd like on each challenge. Join us, won't you!?
