Nuvo Shimmer Powders Thinking of You

Good afternoon. Here's the card made with the Embedded Brusho technique (examples shown here in the last post)



- Nuvo Violet Brocade, Cherry Bomb Shimmer powders. Sprinkled onto watercolor c/s while in a WR Memory Keepers EF. Embossed in the Big Shot. Spritzed after embossing. This created a very vivid piece, so after it dried a bit, sprayed with a pearlized mica spray, which softened it somewhat. I liked the softer look much better.

S/B Label 25 to cut out the focal piece; same die shape to cut a faux mat from some paper that looks like mulberry paper with the fibers in it, but it's thicker than mulberry . VOS.

- Hero Arts Papel Picado Confetti (D1500) cover die for the lilac layer, then placed over a hot pink layer. The Picado is a pretty cover die, but most of it is covered up here.

Don't usually put flowers on cards as my arrangements never seem to look 'right' to me (I see so many beautiful bouquets, but mine just never look that nice!). This card will be mailed in a larger envelope with some other items, so thought I'd try to decorate the card a bit. Flowers from stash.
MS punch cut the leaves from white snippets. Colored with several shades of green copics.

Sentiment from a Gina K set, die cut with a S/B label die. While inking the edge got a smudge, so added the little lilac flower.

A friend is having a rough patch of late, so I hope it will cheer her to know she's in my prayers.

Now, here's some more of the embedded Brusho play:

first impression
 
2nd & 3rd impressions
4th impressions - there was enough color on the folder, that by using a brayer was able to get 2 more pulls

the last efforts. The  'smooshed' look was just by dabbing this c/s around on wet pieces of c/s and to get the very last bit off the E/F. The colors used were Brusho turquoise and Lime Green. It seems that the darker colors yield more pulls. Maybe the Nuvo shimmer powder might have gotten more impressions, but the color combination didn't strike my fancy, so I didn't bother.

Thanks for joining me this afternoon. Ya'll come back when you can, and God Bless - lots of hugs too.

  14. I'm so glad you tried this and you got some beautiful results. I like the softer colors and the 2nd and 3rd pull do soften things better. Using the mica spray helps too.

Had a chuckle too about the addition of the tiny flower...you are not alone x I am sure this wonderful card will bring a smile to your friends face x. Love how you kept playing with the different colour combination, pulls etc. You sure look like you had fun? Crafty hugs x

  23. Oh wow Mary, you got so many wonderful pulls and your card is beautiful - I think you you should use flowers more often on your cards, they look wonderful on this one! (apologies for my lateness, have been away). Hugs, Anne xx

  25. Wonderful embossed Brusho panels, Mary! Those flowers work perfectly with your card. Your issue with flowers is my issue with sequins and Nuvo drops. I love how they look on other's cards, but they rarely seem right on my own.

  27. Well done with this technique, Mary! I've never seen anyone get four pulls before! I didn't do too badly in Canada, but when we tried it in Seattle, I couldn't even get three! (I think I that was operator error, lol!) Hugs, Darnell xxoo
