Playing Along in Challenges


Hi friends!

I'm here to share a card where I'm using a brusho background! I made it in a watercoloring + brushos class in a crafting event one week ago. This class was super inspiring and I don't feel so freaked out about water coloring anymore! The brushos were great... I don't own any yet but am going to! :) 

The technique we did involved adding water on the brushos and then using rock salt for creating extra texture and patterns. We wet the water color card, sprinkled some brushos on it, sprayed, splattered  and painted with water (everything was allowed pretty much) and after we were done playing with water we poured rock salt on the wet project. After that was all dry we just brushed away the salt and the final results were so fantastic... Everyone's bg looked different and in mine you can see the splatters and water movement pretty well + the salt has even left some sparkly texture on the bg. Love it! 

I heat embossed the Hello Lovely flower from Concord 6 9th on my bg and made it into a card. I framed the brusho + heat embossed panel and attached it on a card base I had covered with watercolor style patterned paper. I decided not to add a sentiment, I did not want to cover the pretty sparkle from the salt! I added even more sparkle by "coloring in" the flower with WOS.
