For my card today I created a Pivot card using the Katie Label Pivot Card die designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs along with some Cute Bears Peel-Off Stickers also from Elizabeth Craft Designs and Towbow Markers and Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

ECDTombowBear6a-wm

To create my card I removed the liner from a sheet of Elizabeth Craft Designs Adhesive Paper and set that aside. I then attached the adhesive to some card. I took the liner paper I put aside and used this to place my Peel-Off Sticker Bears, Bees and Flowers sticky side up. Once these were in place I removed the remaining liner paper from my adhesive sheet and placed that on to off the peel-off stickers.

Remove the top liner again and cover the images with Warm Diamond Silke Microfine Glitter also from ECD. Don’t forget to polish the glitter into the adhesive. You can see a video Els created using this technique here.

Next we are ready to color in the images. For my images I used Tombow’s Dual Brush Pens from the Secondary Palette set along with their blender kit. I scribble the colors I wanted to use onto the blending board which comes in the blending kit and then used my Tombow blending pen to transfer the color onto my glittered bears. You can see how you can get different shades using this technique … the pads of the bears paws, and the flower are all colored using the same marker .. 856 from this set.

One thing to remember when using Tombows with glitter is to allow time for them to dry. The effect is worth the wait!

I used the flourish from the Agatha Edges die set to create the flourish on the left side of the card. I used digital sentiments and the label dies from the Katie Label Pivot Card set to decorate the pivot section of my card.

Finally I added the bear, bees and flowers.

And here is the front of my card, as you can see I added another of the Towbow Colored Glittered Peel-Off Sticker Bears (try saying that fast!).
