Thanks with Brushos and Cling Wrap


It's been a while since I posted a card using the crinkled cling wrap on glossy paper with Brushos technique. I needed a thank you note and remembered I had not blogged this one yet. I started with a top folding kraft card. I crinkled cling wrap on a glossy piece with green Brushos spritzed with water. After waiting just a short time, this wonderful background was the result. I die cut Penny Black's fern twice (cream and dark green) and layered them slightly offset, Then I die cut and attached "thanks" from My Creative Time.

I am entering this card in the Thanks/Thanksgiving challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  and the Anything Goes challenges at Papertake Weekly and Scrapy Land. (used Penny Black die.)

beautiful card!! do you have a tutorial for the background and can you do it with ink refills?

Sherry- I am going to reply here because when I hit reply on your comment it is going nowhere.. so I hope you check back or can see this. I learned how to do this from the brilliant Eileen who has a video tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoDfsnzKys8

You could try it with ink refills or alcohol inks on glossy paper or not. I have not tried that because I love my Brushos/Bisters/Color Burst which you can tell from how many cards I post with them:)
