Blue Birthday


Guess what...more blue.
This morning the challenge at Splitcoast was to THINK BIG.  
I just bought this Time Warp stamp by Neat and Tangled and was the perfect chance to use it.


I began by pulling out my Brusho paint crystals...blue of course.  I wanted to try a different technique using the Brusho.  Usually I sprinkle the crystals on my paper and spray with water to activate but this time I sprayed a grunge stamp with plenty of water and stamped onto my watercolour paper and sprinkled on the Brusho after that.  I liked the results as the paint stayed just in the areas where I had stamped the water.
When dry, I inked the Time Warp stamp with Distress ink, sprayed with water and stamped several times over the border.  Staying with the 'BIG' theme, I stamped the large birthday greeting in the corner using my Misti for perfect placement.
