For my card, I used Tombow’s Dual Brush Pens like watercolors.  I started with a piece of cold-pressed watercolor paper, then embossed the floral image from Majestic Bloom in white.  Then, I scribbled 885 Warm Red and 993 Chrome Orange Dual Brush Pens onto an acrylic block.  With a waterbrush, I picked up the color and applied it to my flower.  My sentiment is stamped from our Penned Rose set, and I finished off the card with a frame cut from Gold Mirror cardstock.


To accompany my card, I made a handmade envelope.  I first used the 885 Warm Red Dual Brush Pen to write out the name “Jennifer” onto my envelope…it was easy to get the thick and thin lines with the pen.  Then, I stamped “happy mail for” as well as a leafy accent from our From the Desk Of stamp set.  I just love how this set helps you to create fun personalized cards and gifts!
