Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing the second part of a play with Brushos. Click HERE to see Christine's Birthday card from yesterday. I sprinkled brushos on top of my fern leaf stencil, spritzed with water, and once dry fussy-cut and placed it in a frame ... that's the card I posted yesterday.
After taking a print of my fern, the stencil still had lots of colour on it (from errant Brusho crystals and water) ... so I flipped it over and placed it onto a piece of clean mixed media paper to take a Stencil Monoprint. I pressed it down onto the card, blotting with a paper towel to absorb any colour that strayed into the open parts. This leaves me with a coloured background, and my stencil image is white. After it was dry, I place the fern stencil back over top, matching up the design and then spread a layer of Crackle Paste over top. A black with white heat embossed sentiment banner was added to finish the card. Easy peasy and I got two cards for the price of one. :)
Adding this to the Take It Make It August Challenge at Craft Stamper Magazine where this time they are wanting us to Take a Technique - Stencils and Masks.
Going to add this to the CAS Mix Up August Challenge - Sprays gallery. My CAS Mix Up card has stamping, Brushos, stenciling, stencil monoprint, embossing paste and heat embossing. Come play along!!

A couple of days ago, I had a play day with my friends Susan and Christine. We experimented with more stenciling techniques and products. Lots of fun! Susan brought her puppy, Tessa ... and my son Jeremy came over with Violeta. The pups had so much fun playing with each other. :)
Jer quickly snapped some pictures with his phone. Susan is holding her Tessa, and Christine is holding Violeta. Aren't the pups adorable??!!
