Pens, markers, adhesives, colouring pencils…we use them every day! We use them at the office, at home and of course for our hobbies! I would almost be willing to bet most of us have at least one Tombow product in our collection, even if you aren’t aware of it!CSM Spotlight on Tombow / Dual Brush Pens

Search the web!

You don’t have to search too far on the internet to see countless, beautiful examples of their Dual Brush Pens at work. They have become a favourite among team CSM! These pens are often used to create beautiful brush lettering projects and art! You can see lots of examples on Kelly Klapstein’s website! We are blessed to have Kelly as a long time team member and magazine contributor!Complete set of Tomboy Dual Brush Markers
Unlike, the talented Kelly…I am not a brush lettering guru! I would however like to share other ways to use these wonderful pens and Tombow adhesives!

Tombow Products and Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking layout using Tomboy Dual Brush Pens and adhesive / layout by Kim Gowdy
This layout using the Tombow Dual Brush Pens three ways! First I coloured the hummingbird card from Paper House Productions, second I added colour behind the photos by using the pens like a watercolour and third I used the nib end to write my journalling. To use the Dual Brush Pens like watercolour…scribble on a non-stick surface, spray with water and apply to page with a brush.
Card using Tombow Dual Brush Pens to achieve a dreamy water colour effect / Tomboy Adhesives / Stampin Up stamps
For this card, I scribbled a few colours of the Dual Brush Pens onto a non stick surface. I liberally sprayed the inks with water and placed my watercolour paper on top to pick up the colours. Let it dry on it’s own or speed up the process with a heat tool…continue until you achieve the desired result. I used the Tombow Xtreme adhesive to adhere my coloured piece onto glitter cardstock. Stamped image form Stampin Up.
Simple tag using Tomboy Dual Brush Pens / Stampin Up stamps / baby wipe
The background for this tag also using the Dual Brush Pens. I coloured my stamp directly with the Dual Brush Pens, liberally sprayed with water, stamped onto water colour paper and quickly wiped image with a baby wipe to spread the wet ink! The detail image is coloured directly with a Dual Brush Pen and stamped randomly over background. I like to leave my tags bare and add a sentiment as needed at a later date! This could easily find itself on a bottle of wine with a “THANK YOU” added to it! My flower embellishment stays in place with Tomboy Xtreme adhesive!
