Brusho and template (by Maria)


Hello crafters, I have another sample to show you today,  I hope you like it and will try it too.



I made this card with a stamp from Awesome Orchids clear stamp sheet, a flower template and some Brusho. I took some smooth white paper, stamped my image and stamped it again on masking paper. I cut it out and put the mask on the flowers, then I placed my template over the top and sprayed a tiny bit of water over it. You do need to be careful not to use too much water otherwise it goes under the template and you get a messy background. Then I took my orange Brusho and sprinkled a tiny amount all over the background. I took away the template and the mask and dried the card with a heat tool. Normally you have a white card with the orange flower background, but I wanted more colour, so I coloured it with some orange Distress Ink. I coloured my flowers with some alcoholic markers and I gave them some accents with a yellow gelly pen to look like daffodils. I hope you will try this project.
Have a wonderful day and a lot of fun!

Greetings,
Maria

  1. Your colouring of the flowers really does make them look like daffodils & I like the way you've used your gel pen for highlighting. Your matting with black makes the whole piece very eye-catching & I particularly like the way you used both Brushes & Distress Inks for your background. Thank you for the tip about not overwetting the paper whilst using the stencil, very helpful to bear in mind.

  3. A gorgeous card Maria, and I love the combination of brusho and distress ink in tbe stencilled background. If you saw the flowers with just the top half of the leaves they could definitely be daffodils, and the black layer makes it really stand out. x
