Hi! I am back today with another card made using the Brushos!
I actually demonstrated how to do this background on my Facebook page Tuesday night, Jan 30th. You’ll find it on this page. The Brushos are quite fun to play with – there are so many different techniques and so many colors you can make from the 5 colors that come in the set.
For this particular background panel, I sprinkled the Yellow and Brilliant Blue Brushos on Whisper White cardstock then spritzed with water. If you spritz at an angle, the colors will spray and spread more than if you spritz straight down. Once dry, it was layered on a piece of Basic Black card stock. My base is the Thick Whisper White.
For the dragonflies, die cut from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock. Embellish with Wink of Stella Clear. They’ll become sparkly:
The fun with Brushos – even when using the same two colors – you can get a different look! I hope you’ll give them a try!
All supplies used in the making of this card can be found in my on-line store. Use hostess code: AWRFCDQY

Hi! Did you have fun checking out all the great projects in Saturday’s Valentine hop? I hope so! But if you missed it, here’s my project.
Today, I have a beach scene I did at a workshop over the weekend using the Waterfront stamp set. They loved it! (And so did I!)
I do find I get a better look if I stamp one color, watercolor with the Aqua Painter before moving on to the next. For this card, we started with the mountains – stamped off once in Chocolate Chip, watercolor, then stamp the smaller mountain in Cajun Craze and watercolor. The sand is Sahara Sand (used the big mountain upside down) and just moved it over as I went down the side of my card. The water uses the same stamp as the sand, just reversed and stamped in Marina Mist ink. The mountain, sand and water were all watercolored. The trees, sun and birds were not. The sun is stamped in Crushed Curry. The trees in Chocolate Chip and Garden Green. The birds are from the High Tide stamp set and stamped in Chocolate Chip as well.
This truly is a fun set to play with. I created a Mountain and Lake scene and showed how to do the watercoloring on my Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live video January 16th. You will find it on this page.
If you love painting – but don’t always have time to do it – this is a great alternative and an awesome set to use for it! You’ll find it in my on-line store here.
Don’t forget, we are still celebrating Stampin’ Up!’s favorite time of the year with Sale-A-Bration! I’ve already had one hostess take advantage of getting the starter kit for very little money by applying her hostess benefits toward the cost of the kit. I believe she paid around $30 for almost $200 worth of Stampin’ Up! goodness!! Guess what! YOU can do the same!! Contact me for the details!

Hi! Today I have a quick but so sweet card to share with you today.
I don’t often pull off Clean and Simple cards – but I just loved how he turned out. This little guy is from the A Little Wild set – great for little ones as well as big ones. I used Watercolor Pencils – Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight to color the images. The Designer Series Paper strip is from the Delightful Daisy pack. My sentiment is from the Eastern Beauty set – I just love the font – and is stamped in Old Olive.
What do you think? Would this card put a smile on your face if it arrived in the mail? Yes? Then leave a comment below and I’ll email you for your address and make one of these cuties to send you!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hi. How are you today? I hope doing well. Did you get some crafty time in over the weekend? I did! I had a class on Friday night featuring the Sharing Sweet Thoughts RMHC set and then on Saturday I did a workshop for a lovely hostess. One of the cards I shared with them, was this card on Watercoloring.
The background is created using an Aquapainter and watercolor paper. The colors from bottom to top are Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Pool Party. The image is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink. I was very happy with how it turned out and the guests just loved it.
The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink as well.
The base layer is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side. The Crumb Cake layer is 4 x 5 1/4″. The water color paper is 2 1/2 x 4 1/4″ making the black layer 2 3/4 x 4 1/4″. I tied a piece of Linen Thread around the image to finish it off. This is a very quick card and just needs a little drying time – which you can speed up with a heat gun if needed. I highly recommend letting the watercolor dry completely before stamping the image.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project! You can find all elements used on this card in my on-line store here.
