Tombow, 5 of 8: Elizabeth

For the next two days, things are going to get wet and wild in the Studio with Tombow's Dual Brush Pens.

I separated our theme into two parts for my design.

First I went "wild" and created a splattered-filled background on the card base.  I scribbled a big puddle of ink (Tombow Dual Brush Pen 985) on a plastic palette.  Then a wet paintbrush was used to "scoop" up a big dollop of the ink so it could be "flicked" on to the card.

For the "wet" part, I colored Penny Black's Creative Die "Field of Dreams" die cut from watercolor paper with various hues of blue then misted the ink.  The wet die cuts were turned and tilted to allow the ink to move and blend.  

Once they were dry, the flowers were randomly dabbed with Liquitex Medium Gel Mat and sprinkled with Crystal Art Glitter.

A sentiment from Kind Words (Penny Black) stamped in black and turquoise was matted with a thin strip of Sea Breeze Cardstock which was adhered with Mono Aqua Adhesive.

For all the dimensional layering, Tombow's 3-D Foam Tabs were used.

Two small pearls added the final embellishment to the flowers.
