Good Morning Ladies,
Wow I think that this week is going to go fast with Paul being off Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday was a very flat day for me, I was in a lot of pain from travelling and felt emotionally exhausted too, I just feel like I don't want to engage in conversation, which as you all know is not like me at all !!
After a slow start to the day I ventured into my craft room and wanted to play with something different so I reached for my Brusho's which I haven't used for months, for this card I used Lemon and Ost.Red, I used watercolour card which I spritzed with water and then lightly sprinkled the Brusho powders over the whole card, the key to using Brusho is 'LESS IS MORE'! Literally add a tiny sprinkle from a whole that you have punctured in the top of the Brusho pot with a push pin, NEVER take the lid off, believe me, its disastrous!! Don't let that put you off playing with them though, they are so pigmented and so much fun to play with. I made a few different backgrounds at the same time.
I allowed my background to dry naturally and then before stamping I dusted with an antistatic bag before I stamped the 'Meadow' stamp using Versafine Clair, I did use my stamp platform as I was stamping onto Watercolour card. I covered my stamped images with clear embossing powder and heat set. So as you can see below it leaves a nice shine which adds to the interest of the card.
I edged my card with Black Soot Distress Oxide and matted onto Black card and then onto a white Linen card base.
I really thought that the Brusho background looked like a Sunset, this was what inspired the card.
I am looking forward to seeing your Silhouette cards at the weekend.
Love and hugs to all of you,
