Hi everyone. I've been busy cutting out stencils with my Silhouette Cameo in preparation for a Stenciling play day this weekend with a couple of crafty friends.
Today I'm using one of the stencils I cut to create two Brusho snowflake cards. I first placed the stencil over my card front and sprinkled with three colours of Brushos and then sprayed lots of water. I took a monoprint (second card), where the background is coloured (see card near bottom of post).
I still had ink on my stencil after taking the two prints so pressed it into my mat, sprayed with more water, and splashed the colour onto my background of my first print (above), using my Splash Watercolouring technique.
I doodled around the outline of the snowflake with a silver metallic pen and heat embossed the sentiment in silver. I used my clear Wink of Stella to add a bit of shimmer to the snowflake. Hard to see the shimmer in the photo above, so here's a close up ...
For the monoprint card below (using the leftover ink on the stencil from above, flipping it over onto mixed media paper), I doodled an outline in black and also added wink of stella to add shimmer. A black banner with white heat embossed sentiment finishes the card. Two cards from just one sprinkling of Brushos. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
