Thank You Card with Suzi

Good Morning All, Today I'd like to share with you a Thank You Card I've created using Acrylic Inks to colour some die cuts, along with Brusho Background papers I created for a previous project.

Here's how I made my card.

First of all I die cut two boots from white cards stock, and an assortment of flowers and stems from Brusho background papers i'd created previously.

Next I started to create my plaid/tartan pattern on the boot cut outs.  The first step was to add some lines of Yellow Acrylic Ink with a Bamboo Pen,
I then added some lines of Turquoise Acrylic Ink,
I finally added some lines of Bottle Green Acrylic Ink.

I then created my card base.  I used a 5 x 7 inch card blank, to which I added some dark green card followed by a layer of white cardstock.  To the white card stock I added some green ruffled paper from my stash along with a strip of green brusho background paper.  I then added the boot die cuts and the greenery I'd die cut.

I then added the floral die cuts.
To finish my card I added a stamped and die cut sentiment, along with a strip of blue brusho paper to tie the sentiment to the rest of the card.

Here's a close up of the finished card.

I had great fun creating this card, I love creating plaid/tartan patterns and love how these boots turned out.  I also love how you can create the main focal point of a card from leftover bits of pretty papers. I hope you've enjoyed an insight into my creating process, I love sharing my work with you all.

Happy Crafting
Bye for now

Fun With Brusho's

Hello.  Gail here today playing with some Brusho powders.  I just wanted to try a few things and making a dotty background using Brusho's in water and a drinking straw seemed like a fun idea.  

I used the Brusho background for my stamped flowers.  Here's what I did.....

Dilute a sprinkle of the Brusho powder in water.  I'm starting with Emerald and Leaf Green.  Working on some watercolour paper dip a thin drinking straw into the Brusho watercolour and touch the paper to make a drop.  Dip and repeat many times.  

Here I've added Sea Green to fill in the gaps and started with Ost Blue around the edges.  I realise that this looks particularly unimpressive but bear with me........

I used a flower stamp from Uniko and stamped and fussy cut three flowers.  OK, I realise now I could have just stamped the flowers and then just 'dotted' on them, but actually, making the background was quite relaxing, and it gave me more choice on where to stamp my flowers for the most ascetic colours.

I die cut some centers from black card and used some large half pearls to complete the flowers.

I used the diluted Ost Blue, a flat brush and a ripped piece of paper as a mask and tinted the edge of a white card base

I arranged the flower along the tinted card edge and stamped a sentiment from Rubber Dance.  

I hope you enjoyed my project today.
Get out your Brusho's and have fun!  Hugz
