More Brushos with Stencils


Hi everyone.  Sharing a Christmas card I made using Brushos with Stencils technique.  Click HERE to see my short video tutorial on how I do this fun and easy technique.

I found another stencil that works well with brushos.  This is from Simon Says and it has large snowflakes with both open space and solid space so you can really see the shape of the snowflake outlines.

I used two colours of Brushos (Ultra Marine and Turquoise), each having several pigments so there's lots of colour variations and blending.

I added a sentiment banner stamped with two colours of inks (first inking with Turquoise and then adding a little Pacific Point to get a colour match to my background).  To finish I added a silver foil die-cut snowflake that I got as a gift AGES ago from my good friend Karen (Snippets).  I tucked these snowflakes away in a "safe place" and just found them the other day. :)  Thanks so much Karen!

This card was so easy and quick that I made a second one to donate.

I'm entering this into three challenges:  AAA #66 - Watercolour;  Craft Stamper's Magazine: Take it Make it - Let's Get Inky where I used two types of inks (brushos and dye) and two colours (blue and turquoise) ... and STAMPlorations CAS Challenge where anything goes (optional twist for June is blue).



I do love to include die-cuts frequently in my cards, so you'll see lots of reminders from me about the current CAS Mix Up June Challenge - Die-cuts.  :)

My CAS Mix Up card has stamping, die-cut, and stenciling with brushos.



Thanks for coming by!
