Hi everyone. Just a reminder the challenge at CAS Watercolour for November is TEXT (other than a sentiment).
(other than a sentiment)
Having more fun playing with Brushos. This is a technique I tried when I had a play day in my studio with my friends, Susan and Christine. The technique combines Brushos with spray starch and cling wrap.
First I sprayed a piece of mixed media paper with spray starch. Then I sprinkled with Brushos Colour Crystals. The starch seems to hold them in suspension. I took a piece of cling wrap and placed it over top, scrunching up the wrap as I put it over the Brushos. Then I left it for about 1/2 hour to dry. The colours tend to pool in the creases of the cling wrap. When I removed the wrap, this is the design I got. Love it!! So artsy! The panel was still a little wet, so left it to dry completely before heat embossing this awesome text stamp that I've had for ages. My sentiment is on the inside of the card.
There are lots of fantastic cards in the gallery of the challenge already. Why not check them out and come join in the fun. Make a CAS (Clean and Simple) Watercoloured card with TEXT (other than sentiment) and play along. The challenge is open until end of day Nov. 24th.
Thanks for stopping by!
