Purple Onion Designs + Tombow

This week, Purple Onion Designs and Tombow have teamed up to showcase each other's products on their respective blogs.

Here are the cards that I made using Tombow's Dual Brush Pens. I loved using the blender pen and it felt like I was watercoloring--without the water!



I stamped the images with Staz On ink on watercolor paper and brushed some ink onto an acrylic block to use as my palette. I loved how effortless it was to get the look of watercoloring with just a few swishes of the blender pen.


On my second card, I colored the flower using the brush pens and blender pen on watercolor paper. I trimmed it out and used Tombow's Foam Tabs to attach it to the card base. There are two sizes in a pack and I was able to use both sizes on different parts of the image.

The zig zag stitches were colored using a brush pen and since I used it to color in the leaves, it was an exact color match.

Be sure to visit both blogs to see more ideas using Purple Onion stamps paired with Tombow's awesome products. Thanks for stopping by today...
