Well, I was a very excited lass today when my BRUSHOS came in the mail. Woo hooo. I had been hoping they would come in time for me to try and create something for the challenge at ShowCASe your style.
First, my card -
Here is the colour inspiration from ShowCASe your Style
I concentrated on just four colours - purple, blue, orange and yellow
I even got dad in on the action today - He drilled holes into the top of my brusho containers and even found some stopper doover lackeys in his tool box.
Ok, back to my card.
I have never tried the Bokeh technique before so I was quite nervous. Combining a new medium AND a new technique - am I crazy!!
I used watercolour cardstock for this one. I misted a little water over my panel and then dropped my crystals onto the paper. It was really cool watching the crystals react with the water. I misted them a little more until I had a nice combination (not that you have much control over the end result, lol).
I did end up with patches but I liked it. I didn't want to get over excited with the water :)
Once it was dry (and I did use my heat gun. I had read to let it air dry for better results but who has time for that??), I got out some OLD Hero Arts Dot stamps that I don't think I've ever used to create my Bokeh effect.
I used a combination of Staz On White and SU White.
Now, because the Bokeh effect is so popular with photography, I had to add a little camera and some inspirational words from Whimsy Stamps.
I had a LOT of fun creating this card. I think you will be seeing a lot of Brusho creations from me. So fun!!
This will probably be my last 'live' post for a while. I have a heap scheduled as I am going on a cruise in 6 sleeps. Yes, 6 more sleeps. So, if you don't see me around for a while, that's why! :)
(Mind you, with Brushos to play with, I think I will be back before the end of the week lol)
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -
ShowCASe your Style - Colour Challenge
Come and Get It - Make your own Background
Paper Minutes - Bokeh Technique
Stampin' Royalty - Watercolour
