Brusho inspiration

Hi fellow crafters,

Today I  want to present my brusho inspiration. I was very skeptical about this magic powder but after one use I fell in love with brusho and the love continues.

Try to use good quality watercolor card to allow brusho move easily on the card. You can sprinkle brusho powder first and spray water or you could spray the card first (generously) and sprinkle the powder. Choice is yours or better try both methods because you will get different results. Created backgrounds are never the same. Always unique style! That's why I love brusho.
Let me show you few cards with brush background.
























Hope you like my brusho inspiration and will give a go.
Hugs,
Kasia

This is how every background begins...brusho powders, cards, water...

My DT samples

Hiya,
Just sharing few of my samples using Altenew stamp set - Faithful feather stamp set. here
Showing different ways of using the same stamp.
In this sample the feathers are cut out and place on the main panel which is covered with double sided adhesive. The place which was left around the feathers was covered with clear glitter.

Here I heat embossed the feathers with gold embossing powder. The background is made using brusho powders.
Here I stamped the background with feathers stamp using sparkle pens. The edges are stained with distress inks. Additionally I cut out three feathers stamped in black.
In this project I stamped the feathers in black and applied the gilding wax to creat metallic look.

Hope you like my takes on one stamp.
Possibilities are endless,just keep exploring.

My canvas

Hello  everybody,
I just wanted to share with you my few canvas I made recently.
This project was made using structure paste to create the bubbles. The cracks are stamped. The sentiment and the feather are from Altenew stamp set.

In this one I used the feather stamps from the Avery Elle set. Structure paste for the background. The dragon fly is a chipboard which was coloured.
Here I used the structure paste for the background texture. The clock stamp is from the imagination Crafts stamp set. The lovely sentiment is by visible images.

I used mixed media spray to add colours to my canvas.

Thank you for looking,


Crafting hugs,

Gilding flakes tags

Hi All,
Today I would like to share with you birthday tags I made for Imagine Design Create.
 Imagine Design Create, site logo.


How to do it:
1. You need 2 tags shape card. Available online from IDC here.
2. Firstly add colour using distress inks. I used two different shades on each tag.
 To achieve a bleach effect spray lightly with water and dab the surface with a kitchen towel/tissue.
3. Now... let's do the stamping with Tonic Nuvo Gilding flakes.
4. You need a gilding glue. I use cosmic flake&glitter glue.
5. To stamp with the glue squeeze a small amount onto your glass mat. Use a small sponge( make up sponge) and dab the stamp. This glue is extra sticky and super quick bonding so you need to quick when stamping, otherwise you will peel the paper.
You cannot see stamped image.! so do not touch the surface. Apply a pinch of gilding flakes onto the stamped image.
Trust me,  try not to breath too much while doing that ! LOL
Flakes goes everywhere!
To reveal the image scrub the surface. I cut the washing up sponge and used the rough side, works like magic and it is cheap.
I stamp 'Happy Birthday' sentiment from the Birthday Balloons Large set. I also stamped few small balloons from the same stamp set with gilding glue and applied flakes.

6. To finish I stamped one of my favorite bubble border from the Abstract Border Lines Stamps, randomly using the same distress inks in the background. I would advise to do that before gilding stamping but I simply forgot.

7. Mat onto the black card and tags are ready.

 Hugs,

Kasia

Flower Power

Happy Saturday to everybody,
Today is my blog time for Bumbleberrys papercrafts. I have use My Favorite Things stamp set to create this card.
The set I used is available to purchase  from here.
 This is 6x6 card.
Cut the half of the front of the card.  I used this cut of panel to stamp the leaves that I adhered on the left side of the card. I used distress inks to stain the edges green.

I used tree circle panels. On the biggest one I stamped the flowers in black ink, to add the colour I stamped them with the aqua pens. I simply coloured the stamp directly with a pen and stamped. It gave a pretty water colour effect.

I used the other flower stamps from the sketched blooms2 set on the others circle panel. I used distress ink to add colour.

'Thanks' sentiments is a die cut in silver mirri card layered onto the black card, creating the shadow effect.

Finally I added some orange colour (distress inks) to the inner part of the card so it wont match the front.

Hope you like it.

Faithful Feather stamp set

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today's card is a project for  Bumbleberry Papercrafts using the sentiment from Altenew Faithful Feather Stamp Set. 


The card is 7"x7". You need 6"x 6" white card,gold mirri card for mat and layer and black card ( inch smaller from the base card).

Use stencil and distress inks to colour the white card.
Next, you need to foil it. Put the stencil back on the coloured image. I use gold starlight paint and distress applicator to create the gold edges but rubbing the application in circular motions.

After, go with distress inks around the edges and around the middle circle. 

Stamp the sentiment on the circle card, mat and layer.

 Adhere the sentiment using foam pads.

Use 3 white feathers to adhere to the sentiment.

Now, all you need to do to is mat and layer onto a gold mirri and black card. 


Enjoy and hope you like it,

Hugs,

Kasia
