Shades of Green is what I am calling today's card.
I am loving playing with that new stamp from Penny Black called Trumpet Song. Trying some new techniques using it as well.
To create the look of watercolour on my card, I sprayed my stamp with a good amount of water then stamped onto my 90lb. watercolour paper. I like to hold the stamp there for just a few seconds to make sure the water has a chance to penetrate the paper and holds the shape of the image stamp.
Next, I sprinkled on some green Brusho pigment crystals. When they hit the water they burst into life and give you a really nice variation of colour. I applied a little bit more of the Brusho onto my acrylic block, sprayed with water so I could add some green specks on the open areas.
When the piece was totally dry, I used my MISTI to stamp the Sprinkles and Smiles sentiment. Love how I can repeat stamp for a deep, rich shade of black when using the MISTI.
Adding my card to these challenges:
(I had to stamp the image with water several times along the edge of my cs)
