I was playing with Brusho Crystals and the new That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils recently, and making backgrounds with my favourite colours. I cut one such background up to make this card.
Here's what I used...
Brusho Crystal Colour - Purple, Turquoise, Ultramarine
Here's what I did...
1. To make the background, I sprinkled the Brusho Crystals onto a sheet of stamping card, laid about 12 of the Dinky Stencils all over it, then spritzed with water. I removed the stencils, then dried the ink with a heat gun.
2. I cut my background into four, then stamped the main image, bricks and words onto one piece. I stamped some butterflies, one large & three small, onto another piece of background, cut them out, applied Glossy Accents just to the bodies, and glued them in place.
3. I mixed a tiny amount of purple Brusho Crystals with water, then used a water brush to colour in the words. I also used the brush to flick some watery purple inky spots onto the card.
4. To finish, I inked the edges of my artwork with the black ink pad, adhered it to a white card blank, then used Glossy Accents to attach the metal embellishments to the butterflies and the woman's hair. As the butterfly wings were not glued down, I lifted them off the card slightly, for a bit of dimension.
Hope you have a crafty day,
