Tombow Marker Watercoloring

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. Thanks, Simon!

Hello, all! I’ve seen a lot of amazing cards made using the Panda images from the Party Like a Panda stamp set from the August 2019 card kit, so I thought it would be fun to create a card using other elements from the stamp set! I used only the balloon stamps!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I started by stamping and cutting out masks with masking paper for all the balloons. Then I stamped them close together and visually overlapping. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof and I planned to watercolor. And I used Strathmore Bristol paper since that paper works well with watercolor markers.

After taping the piece to a hardboard, I painted the balloons and background using the Galaxy set of Tombow Markers. I filled in the “Happy” balloons with a Molotow Liquid Chrome marker.

To finish off the painting portion, I splattered some white gouache over the sky area to create stars, and added highlights to the balloons using a white Gelly Roll pen.

The very last step was to add a greeting. I stamped and white heat embossed “Happy Birthday” on black cardstock using Simon’s Tiny Words Birthday stamp set and adhered it to the watercolor panel using foam squares.

I hope you enjoy the card today! You can pick up the August 2019 Card Kit HERE, or subscribe to receive this card kit and future kits HERE.
