Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well :) Well I'm back already! It was a rainy day yesterday and I just stayed in and had some fun in my craft room :)
I recently received the July issue of Craft Stamper magazine that is again loaded with lots of inspiration and tutorials. On page 70, designer Helen Chilton shows various techniques using Brusho ink powders and one using a stencil. I would never have thought to try a stencil with them, but it worked out great, similar to the first 'pull' from a Gelli plate.
You simply sprinkle Brushos to your card stock (I used mixed media but water colour would work great as well) and then lay your stencil over stop and spritz water. Voila ! Easy Peasy background.
I used the exact Brusho colours that Helen used in her example as they happen to be favourite colours (but then I do love most colours :)) Turquoise, Yellow and Leaf Green. I also stamped over the stencil with a letter stamp (as Helen did) but I had trouble as the stencil was a bit too thick, but some of the lettering is showing.
I used the Turquoise and Yellow brushos to colour the flowers, which I fancy cut and layered up on the card. I molded the back a little to shape the petals.
Stamps used: Magenta- The 2 large flowers (no name on the package) Impression Obsession -(Zenspirations CL530 clear set) and Hello(A3579).
Stencil: TCW- Pointy Circles
Die: Joy Crafts - Leaf (6002/0263).
Thanks for visiting and have a great day,
