Hello and Welcome.
Today, I'm sharing a card I had fun with.
I created it using my Brushos.  For those of you who don't know what Brushos are, they are highly pigmented powder that you activate with water.  You can watercolour with them or just sprinkle them onto your cardstock, spray with water and watch them come alive.

So here's what I did to create my card.

I laid my circle stencil down onto a piece of scrap paper, sprinkled some Brushos onto the back of it, sprayed with a good amount of waterc then pressed my paper into the wet inky stencil creating a monoprint.  When I lifted it, I was left with a fun pattern from the stencil.
After that dried, I stamped the biker then the sentiment and clear heat embossed them to help make them pop against the colourful background.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
