Stampendous, Dreamweaver, and Tombow Go Shabby and Chic!


The Stampendous team are hopping with Tombow all this weekend, playing with all of the fun goodies that Tombow has so generously sent to us, and mixing them up with our Stampendous and Dreamweaver products...and boy, has it been fun! Remember to leave comments along the way to be entered into a chance to win one of the prizes. You can find all the rules and details on the Stampendous Blog! Meanwhile, here's some shabby fun with the Zero Drawing technique...

For this card, I started with a panel of Bazzill Dotted Swiss white cardstock for fun texture. I daubed graphite dust over the paper before placing the Dreamweaver Mittens stencil on top. This was taped with removable tape, and then the magic happens! Using one of the Tombow Mono Erasers (I have the Non PVC eraser as well as the Zero Mono with it's small, pen-like tip), I erased the graphite from the stencil design. I also used the Dreamweaver Snowflakes background to erase and add those designs in the graphite as well. This same stencil was used to create the background of the pink card base by inking the design with Versamark ink, and embossing it with Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel .

Using the Dreamweaver Southwest Snowflake, I used the Tombow Recycled Colored Pencils to color pink flakes on the mittens. These, as well as another flake, were paste-embossed in Translucent Paste over the top, and one of them was also sprinkled with Crystal Micro Glitter while wet.

The cuffs of the mittens were daubed with Regular Embossing Paste, and sprinkled with the Shabby Pink enamel, and heated until puffy and shiny.
I also covered a decorative pearl corsage pin with Versamark ink and coated it in the Shabby Pink as well, before melting it, and inserting it through a looped and crinkled pink organza bow.

All edges were inked and distressed, and a perfect sentiment from the Perfectly Clear Holiday Expressions was stamped and matted on pink ovals to finish this card.


Now, here's the list of today's team players...
