My First Magenta Nuance Card


If you follow me, you know I own and play with my BB/CB (Brushos, Bisters and Color Burst) powders frequently and really don't need any more watercolor powders. But I was seeing some beautiful projects made with Nuance by Magenta, so I decided I did need them:) This is my first try at a card with them and I used Mauve Purple, Violet and Turquoise Nuance powders spritzed with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. I like them- they are more subtle colors than Color Burst and more true to the specific colors than Color Burst. But I like all the options I now own. I made this card for a friend whose birthday is today. After the Nuance colors dried, I layered the piece on a white A2 cardbase. I die cut Poppystamp's Floral Frame in white and added some Tonic Nuvo Blue Lagoon Glitter Drops to the flowers. I punched a small butterfly out of a scrap of the Nuance colored paper with a Martha Stewart punch and added some Nuvo white Crystal Drops to the butterfly and to dot the i.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes with Sentiments at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge and the Birthday challenge at Digi Designs.

Love what you did with the Nuance. I have the CB's and the Brushos, and absolutely love them. I recently bought quite a lot of the Nuvo, and it is nice to see someone else using them so effectively.
Congratulations on a job well done!
