How To Create Amazing ATCS With Brushos

Hello crafty friends

I have a new tutorial for you.

I started off by covering an ATC blank with gesso and then i added a stencil mask over the top.
Next i sprinkled Red Rose down the middle and painted it along the centre and edges using a water brush.

See video

Next i sprinkles Lemon brusho powder onto the white areas and coloured them in with a water pen and blended the colours a little.

Next i painted some dry wall tape with Aztec Metallic Lustre . 
Once dry i peeled it off and cut it up before adding it to the ATC. I then added another stencil mask over the top and this time i used crackle paste.

i used a cog die cut and cut out the shapes from white cardstock which i painted with gesso first and then i coloured in using Brusho powders.I finished off by adding a stamped image to the centre.

For this ATC i added a stencil mask using modeling paste. Then i added  Ultramarine and Purple Brushos before  blending the colours together. I added the painted wall tape around the edges and applied gesso down the centre with a palette knife before stamping over the centre.

The butterfly i created by die-cutting a shape from card. I painted it with gesso and then applied a stencil over the top using modeling paste. I soaked the butterfly with water and added colour using purple and Rose Red. I love hoe the modeling paste absorbs the colour when it dries.

I added a mini peg to the centre for the body and finished off by stamping out a sentiment.

I added a bit more texture around the edges with a texture stamp.

I painted the base with gesso and then spritzed water into the corners before adding Green Leaf and Lime brusho powders. I then stamped around the base with texture stamps and added a stencil mask.

The word is stamped out in card and coloured with Olive Green Brusho so i blends in with the rest of the project.

The Flowers have been stamped out onto card and coloured in using Lemon, Emerald and Olive Brusho powders. I wanted to create a blended effect so i used my water brush to guide the colours together.

I decorated the flowers with self adhesive gems and dotted a few half pearls around the ATC.

Thank you for visiting and i will be back soon with another technique tutorial.

How To Create A Stunning Nautical Greeting Card

Hi all

I have another project for you today using products from Cherish the Memory.  Summer is definitely here in the UK and all i want to do is go to the beach oh well i guess i will have to make seaside themed projects for a bit instead.

I used the vintage papers 6 x 6 paper pad on the card blank and then i used the background from the Romantic Summer Card kit to add the next layer. I added texture sand paste and a stencil to give it a nice sandy look.

I dyed cheese cloth with Brusho powder and spritzed with water to spread the ink. I then dried it out and adhered it to the page. I repeated this step with the webbed trim and then added shells and die cuts from the Romantic Summer Card Kit.

I added a large clam for the main topper and continued to layer up the die cut flowers and shells. I then finished by adding pearls and a sentiment.
