Elizabeth Craft Designs:


                
I've been using Tombow Dual Brush Pens for a long time and one of the techniques I love to do with them is to color on fabric. The colors stay so vibrant!  Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel- Off Outline Stickers work perfectly for the project I'd like to share with you today. 



Here are the steps to make this card:

1. Fold white card base in half.  With the Elizabeth Craft Designs Swirly Curves embossing folder, emboss a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of white cardstock. Ink edges with brown  ink, lightly and adhere to the base.

2. Attach the Daisies in Ovals Peel-Off sticker to a piece of muslin. Press down to secure well. Using Tombow Dual Brush Pens, color in the image one color at a time, using a heat tool to dry each color before adding the next to prevent bleeding. Blend lightly with the blender brush for a smooth look. When dry, fray the edges of the muslin for a vintage look.



Note: In the above image on the right side, you can see the first attempt I made at coloring on fabric with the outline sticker removed. ( another fun look you can achieve with this technique) and the bleeding that occurred because the fabric was too saturated. Take the time to dry the different colors for best results!

3. Glitter and color a butterfly from the Daisies in Ovals Peel-offs. Cut out and add to the right edge of the image with foam adhesive. Adhere the completed muslin to a yellow mat with Elizabeth Craft Designs double sided adhesive. Add "x" s made from strips of black Straight Borders Peel-Offs around the image to simulate stitches.

4. Fold a long strip of ribbon in half and adhere to the center of the card front with loop on the top. Add the muslin panel over the ribbon on foam adhesive to complete.

Elizabeth Craft Designs products used:

Tombow Dual Brush Pens in the following colors:
 452, 076, 055, 993, 373, 158, 977

I haven't tried coloring on fabric. Sounds like fun. I did tole painting many years ago but that was altogether different. Have to try this new technique. I liked both examples you showed. The one with the sticker is bright and clear but the bleeding on the other makes it soft and pretty too.
