I am back with some brusho today. I have tried to find a different way to use Brusho and using a stencil seemed to be my next step.
I used some Strathmore Bristol Cardstock that I taped onto a piece of cardboard (actually it’s the backing of the Strathmore pad).
I then taped the stencil on the top as tightly as possible in order to leave very little gap between the paper and the stencil.
I sprinkled the brusho and then used my little water spray bottler and sprayed. Then dried it with a heatgun, then sprayed again and dried and so on until I was happy with the result.
I wont lie, I was really nervous to pull the stencil up to found out that the water leaked everywhere, but I think applying the water then drying then applying again and drying again, prevented that. So I was really pleased with the result.
I let it dry and only completed the card a few days later. I added a greeting from Avery Elle on a piece of white cardstock to create a contrast and what I call doodling (there’s probably a better word for that) to add little details to the background.
I hope you find this inspiring, if you do not have brusho you could possibly try to spray to diluted distress ink in a spray bottle (or distress paint) 😉 – I haven’t try so it’s just an idea.
Thanks for popping by 😉
