Tombow Guest DT

Hello everyone.....

I am doing a GDT spot this week with my
all time favorite marker company....


You all know how I love Tombow markers!
I have been using their adhesives too
and let me tell you...
I am totally impressed!!!

The first project I have created is a
wooden frame...

All the images I have used are from
High Hopes stamps

Sailor Andy T-120
Summer Sail Boat H-252
Anchor F-144

Summer sunshine H-251

I painted the wooden frame with white acrylic paint.
The first smaller frame is made with adhesive
backed cork. I punched the pieces of cork with
my EK Success border punch and cut 45 degree
angles for the corners. I used Tombow Mono Aqua
liquid glue to adhere the cord to the frame.
I laid out the cord to the design I wanted and
small strips of painters tape to hold it in place.
I lifted small sections (about 2" at a time)
of the cord placing glue underneath from the
fine tip end. I added the tape pieces back after
it was glued which I found out was unnecessary
because the glue held the cord in place perfectly!!
I cut another smaller frame from
thin cardboard, rounded the corners and
covered it with blue fabric CS suing Tombow
Permanent adhesive stamp runner. To adhere
this frame I used Tombow Mno adhesive
Power bond tape runner. The buttons were
attached with Tombow Power Tabs. I cut 1
square into quarters and used 1 quarter
for each button. Since I have been using
these power tabs I have retired my
glue gun!!!
All the images have been colored with
Tombow markers a paint brush and
water. The images are adhered to the frame
with Tombow foam tabs. The flat backed pearls
were adhered with Tombow Mono Aqua
liquid glue.
