I’ve used shiny card as the base for my card this time.  I think that when you use shiny card the colours from the Brushos are more intense.

I sprinkled a little brushos into the corners of the card and spritzed with a little water. I did this from a height and aimed it towards the outside of the card so that it didn’t ‘fly’ everywhere.

 

Leaves were stamped with StayZon ink as it was onto shiny cardstock.

 

The leaves were then painted with some brushos.  Simply spray a little water onto your craft sheet and sprinkle in the Brusho crystals. It is really easy to paint on.

The sunrays were an after thought, but I was really happy with how it turned out. I made a mix of Brushos and water on my craft sheet and using a sponge I dabbed the Brushos through a stencil.
You don’t need much, the less the better. Just dab the excess moisture on your craft sheet so that the sponge isn’t too wet.

 

Butterfly Girl #2 has been a favourite stamp of mine for a while. She was stamped onto watercolour card to start with.  I sprinkled a really tiny amount of Brushos onto her wings, near her body and lightly sprayed with water. I let it dry naturally as I think the colours are stronger this way. The legs were coloured also with Brushos that had been watered down.

I discovered that the watered down Gamboge colour makes a wonderful skin tone.

Then I simply cut her out and attached to the card.

As a frame I’ve used a black fine liner and a ruler to draw a dotted line on and stamped some words to finish off.

Now it’s your turn to join in the hop!

Day 2

Classic Visible Image

It’s in the Eyes

It is my turn over at Visible Image…and I couldn’t resist playing with the Vision INKognito set!

This eye has had me transfixed for sooo long.  
The challenge for me was to show it a little differently. 
The girls on the Visible Image team have inspired me to go that bit brighter…occasionally.

The colours for the background are made using Ultramarine brushos. 
I only got this colour because the store was out of the turquoise one (which I really, really wanted…and still do!)
However, I discovered that it disperses into purple and blues!!! 
I looove how it does that!
…and the blue becomes a bright sky blue when you add a little bleach.  So I ended up with my turquoise shades anyway!
Sometimes with the other colours the bleach leaves white splotches, but for some reason (must be a science behind it) not with this one.
After experimenting at the kitchen table I have made a few discoveries ~
 Less is more!!! 
Less is more!!!
Less is more!!!
You can blot it with paper toweling at any time to stop the blending process, which can lighten the intense colour, or…whenever you want to stop the process and keep the colour – then hit it with the heat gun.  So…you have choices.
And the colours are amazing!

The eyes were done with Inktense pencils in colours to match the brushos.
And I touched up the background with a little Wilted Violet DI, taking to the top and bottom corners and to blend out the blues and purples of the Ultramarine.

The stamps used were:
Vision INKcognito set and Ink Splats.  Both awesome stamp sets!
