I expect you may be getting a little tired of the Brusho backgrounds, but I am having such fun playing with this stuff. Made quite a few pieces as it's not worth the bother to just make one background, and then waste all the excess color. Our SIL lost his Dad last week, and we needed a card. Looked through the dies - decided to use a Memory Box Peony die and here's the resulting card:
Sorry for the glare on the photo. Started with a card base of World Win white paper. This is a good weight for a card base, and has a fine texture...a bit finer than the Bazzill cardstock I use frequently.
Cut the MB peony die out of the card base where the flower was to be. Saved the outline and all the little bits. Then cut the same die out of a pink Brusho piece, that had a final pearlized spritz before drying; which is why the colors look less intense than what you've been seeing here. You'll see the other die cuts used at later date. Used the blue outline from a blue & green brusho piece.
Inlaid outline & all the little bits in the appropriate places. Used Sookwang tape (double side tape) behind the opening.Must say, this has been the easiest effort yet doing this technique.
- Sizzix border folder to emboss.
- Elizabeth Craft sentiment on a snippet of Dylusions background. Used 2 layers to build this up, and probably won't do that again, using water color paper. Oops, see that I forgot the little pearl that needs to dot the i. Will add that prior to mailing. Thought about using some copics to darken the green in the sentiment, decided to leave well enough alone. I have a problem with that!!!
Thanks again for visiting this evening. Hope you had a lovely Wednesday, and are getting ready for a wonderful end of the week. Hugs.
