Brusho and Stencil Magic

Hello Colourcraft friends.  Gail here today.  I was pleased with the effect of the mask I used on my last Brusho's project, so today I decided to see what I could make with Brusho's and a stencil.  I ended up with two different cards with pretty backgrounds.

I placed my stencil on a piece of white paper and sprinkled Sea Green, Yellow, Emerald Green and Sunburst Yellow Brusho powders

Then I spritzed with water and folded the paper over the top of the stencil.

I unfolded the paper and removed the stencil.  I really liked the colour lift I got off the top of the stencil.  A bit too much colour and water on the other one maybe?  But no, actually I like that one too.  For some reason I thought it looked a bit industrial. They just need a bit of contrast now.  So I decided to add some intricate black die cuts.

Two pretty cards from a very simple technique.
Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

Love Notes

Hello and welcome back to the Colourcraft blog. Today I have some shimmery cards with a heart motif - perfect for Valentines or just a little note to a loved one.

I began by layering some Angelina fibres onto some baking paper.

I covered them with another layer of paper and pressed with a hot iron to fuse the fibres together.

Next, I used free-motion embroidery to stitch a heart motif on each piece.

Then I cut out the hearts with pinking shears.

I split apart one of the zig zag books of handmade paper to make individual squares and glued the hearts on top.

I splattered some acrylic ink onto the front of some black card blanks.

Finally I assembled the cards by layering the heart and khadi paper onto some red handmade paper before attaching to the card front.
