Spread Your Wings Brusho Card



I haven't posted a card with B/B/CB recently (Brushos/Bisters/ColorBurst) and I should really add MN to that acronym (for my recent favorite of the watercolor powders, Magenta Nuance.) They are all put away as I concentrate on creating cards with all my dies. But I do love a subtle background created by simply sprinkling my favorite crystals on watercolor paper and spritzing. In this case, I used Brusho Coloured Crystals lightly and spritzed with water. When dry, I simply stamped two lovely stamps from Dina Wakley with a black ink and added a punched bird. I layered the card front on black and then onto a yellow cardbase. CAS but very lovely and perfect for an encouragement card for a female friend.

I am entering this card in the "Use a Stamp" Anything Goes challenge at Craft Stamper Magazine and the Anything Goes challenge at Art By Miran.
