Meet today's card. It may look involved but was super easy to create..just the way I like it!
Still playing with my new Brushos (crystal paint pigment) but this time, I am using bleach to remove some of the colour.
Here is what I did for the background. I sprinkled Brushos in yellow, blue and a hint of green onto my 90lb. watercolour paper. I sprayed with water to activate the ink and watched the magic happen.
I dried it all with my heat gun then inked up the Circular Design with bleach and stamped it onto the Brusho background. The bleach removed some of the ink to reveal a wonderful pattern ready to be stamped over.
HINT: I made my bleach stamp pad by folding paper towels and placing them in a shallow dish. I poured a bit of bleach into the dish just to lightly dampen the paper towels. I immediately washed my stamp with soap and water to neutralize the bleach when I was done so the stamp would not be ruined.
When that was dry, I inked up the Breezy fern stamp with Stazon ink and stamped over the bkg. To create a bit of a shadow behind the leaves, I stamped again using Grey Memento ink.
Lastly, I added the This Day sentiment to finish off my card.
