Hi everyone – Karen Ellis here!

My friend Sheri inspired me to play around with Tombow Markers

tombow set

and white embossing powder this week and I wanted to show you the results …. cause I LOVE it! HAHA

#1

Here’s what I used:

#2

  • Tombow Markers – Assorted Colours
  • One of my favourite rubber stamp sets (Catherine Scanlon Designs, Art Gone Wild)
  • Perfect Medium Ink (Ranger Industries) or your favourite embossing ink.
  • White embossing powder
  • Watercolour postcard (Strathmore) or other watercolour paper
  • a waterbrush (not pictured)
  • Heat Gun (not pictured)

The first thing to do is emboss a stamped image onto the back of the watercolour postcard with your embossing ink and stamp.   Heat to set and get ready to colour!!

#4

The embossing acts as a resist to the ink and water.   Go ahead and colour a portion of your stamp with the markers and then, with a wet brush, drag the ink and colour as you wish.   You’ll see the ink puddle around the embossing creating beautiful blended effects!

#5

But don’t forget the outside edge of the stamp!!

#6

Isn’t it pretty? The white outline gives a soft, feminine result.

I hope you get out your embossing powders and give this a try too! I created this sample on a watercolour postcard so I can mail it to a friend, but you can always use this technique on a layout or in a card.   Just have fun… and, if you try this too, a tiny word of warning – it can be addicting!

Have fun and a super creative day!
