From Within


Good Morning.
Meet my card of the day.  
I just love this sentiment from Daisy Bucket and wish the company was still around.  They had so many wonderful sentiments and sayings.
  (Sometimes you can still find them on Ebay.)

 I had the flower from my Stampin Up set called Blooming with Kindness out so thought I would play with it again using some Brushos.
I began by painting the Brushos onto my stamps.  I find it best to use the stamps in my MISTI. That way, I can paint, stamp and paint again if needed.  Also, by using my MISTI, I was able to create 2 panels that were the same as I had planned to add one on top of the other.
TIP:  when painting with the Brushos I use as little water as possible.  If too much
water is added, the paint solution gets too runny and the stamped image will blur.
So...less is more in this case.

 When the panels was dry, I mounted one to my card front and pop dotted the over directly over top.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner.


Adding my card to these challenges:

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- SU, Daisy Bucket/ Brushos/ paint brush/ Memento bl ink/ pop dots/ MISTI
