Playing with Brushos and Bleach and Cheery Lynn


I love this new die from Cheery Lynn - he just makes me happy! I cut him out twice and inlaid the white pieces back in the black elephant so the words really stand out. I added some white lacquer to his toes and eye so they really stand out too. The background was created with my favorite color of Brusho Coloured Crystals, Ostwalt Blue, which is a cool combo of purple and blue. I dripped some bleach on the Brusho piece and when it dried, it had taken a bit too much of the color off, so I added some turquoise Brushos back on in the white spots, and spritzed. Then I liked the background and used it for this fun Happy Elephant Birthday card.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs and the Anything Inky challenge at Love to Create.

Oh Wow - what an awesome card - never have seen an elephant die and like how you did the inlay. Going to go check out the Brusho crystals too.

Love your elephant--not only does it have it's trunk up but looks like it's dancing also. You are really making me want those Brusho's.
