Elegance

Happy Saturday!

Today, I am playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast.  We are being inspired today, by a Nail Art Board on Pinterest.  What a fun way to be inspired.

 The picture that inspired me showed nail art done with peacock feathers so I pulled out this stamp from Technique Junkies and got to inking.

First, I masked the edges of my white cardstock with painter's tape.  I always stick it onto my clothes first a few times before sticking it to my paper to remove some of the adhesive.  That way, it won't rip my paper when I remove it.
I placed the stamp inside my MISTI, then painted some Brushos mixed with a tiny amount of water, over the stamp. By using my MISTI, I was able to stamp, add more colour and stamp again.
While the piece was still wet, I took a wet paint brush and pulled some of the colour into the white areas.  So easy to do when you are working with the Brushos.  I removed the tape and mounted the piece on some coordinating coloured cardstock.


I am adding my card to these challenges:

I am in love with the effect you've created here. I've read about Brushos in other blogs and can see that I'm going to have to hunt some down if this is what they can do!
