Spread your Wings by Carol Fox


Hello, today I have used Brusho’s to make a tag to share with you.

I started by stamping my bird image using black Archival ink onto my tag. I then sprinkled some dry Brusho around the image and very lightly misted the tag with water, I dried this with my heat gun.

I then put a very small blob of clear gloss gel onto my craft mat and mixed a small amount of Crimson Brusho with this, I used a pallet knife to mix it. I applied this to the tag avoiding my image using the pallet knife. I really like the way this bleed slightly under the stencil but the centre of each dot stayed textured, it gave a slight crackle effect to the outside of each colour dot.


I stamped my quote onto the margin of a book page and added this to my tag, drawing black lines round its border. I stamped a few splotches and splatters using black Archival ink.

I added some stitching and a piece of ribbon to my tag, dragging black acrylic paint around its edges to finish it off.

I used

Feather Bird Stamp from Lost Coast (due back in stock soon)
Kaisercraft Clear Stamp – Stains (still one of my favourite filler stamps)


This is my last post for That’s Crafty as I am cutting back on my crafting commitments for a few months. I may come back later in the year if circumstances allow for it. I have enjoyed my time on the Design Team and I have been honoured to be among some very talented people on here, and I wish to thank Laura for all her support as it has been a lovely team to be part of.
