Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing another card from my get-together with my crafty friends a couple of weeks ago.
I've been away on vacation for a week, and I'm so happy to be back playing in my studio. :) I missed it! Today I made a card using a stencil and Color Bursts that Shirl brought for us to play with. They are really beautiful and very similar to Brushos. I did find it easier to get the powders out of the containers with Color Bursts, but other than that, don't see a lot of difference. I already have several colours of brushos, so for now I will stick with what I already have. :)
I placed my stencil over top of my watercolour paper, sprinkled wih Color Bursts, spritzed with water, then removed the stencil. Love how the panel above turned out. When I removed the stencil, it had brushos and water on it, so I flipped it over to create a stencil monoprint on a second piece of watercolour paper. Will make a card with that panel soon to share. :)
I sponged some Vintage Photo distress ink through a mesh stencil for the background, cut down my clock face monoprint to a small panel and stamped the sentiment in Vintage Photo ink as well. Each layer is popped up on foam to add dimension to the card.
I'm heading over to enter at Addicted to Stamps & More #191 - Anything Goes.

Also want to share how I store my brushos. I followed the video instructions from Sandy Allnock for organizing my pots of colour --- definitely worth watching.
Here's a picture of some of my pots of brushos ...
Thanks for stopping by for a visit! :)
