Altenew and Tombow USA collaboration Blog Hop

Hello,

Today I'm participating on a collaboration blog hop between Altenew and Tombow USA. If you came from Jennie Garcia, blog you are on a right track. If not, please start at the beginning of the hop from Tombow USA blog. I know my teammates and Tombow team as well, have been wonderfully creative with this hop, so there's gonna be a lot of inspiration for you - and a chance to win prizes as well.




I've taken these collaboration hops as a challenge for me and I've tried to go out of my comfort zone. Although these markers pegged for me to color with them, I stayed strong and did something else. I was very positively surprised, how well you can stamp with these Tombow Dual Brush Markers - I haven't tried these pens before and my experience with stamping with (different brand's) markers hasn't been so good but I really loved the result what I was able to gain with these. For the flower I used Altenew Buttercream Crisp Die Ink but the leaves and the outline of the flower is stamped with a Tombow markers. Also, the center of the flower is stamped also with three different shades and just loved the result what I was able to gain very easily. 


I used Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to adhere my card panel to my card base. I die cut the center panel and adhered a piece of fun foam with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue I used Tombow Adhesive dots to adhere the flower to my panel.


Supplies:
Stamps: Spring Daisy and Beautiful Quotes by Altenew.
Dies: Spring Daisy Die by Altenew and Stiched Rectangles by MFT.
Paper: Spicy Yogurt Card Stock by Altenew

Tombow Dual Brush Pen Set, 10 Muted: Chocolate (969), Burnt Sienna (947), Yellow Gold (026).
Inks: Buttercream Altenew Crisp Die Ink, Versafine Onyx Black
Yellow Enamel Dots different sizes

Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
Tombow Adhesive Dots 
Tombow Xtreme Adhesive
