Simplicity by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today and I thought I’d dig out the Brushos for a little change. All the colours will be back in stock very soon at That's Crafty!

What to do:

Use a sheet of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper for this as you’ll be using quite a bit of water to dilute the Brushos.

First up, stamp Tim’s wildflowers with Versamark and emboss in white, heat set. This will act as a resist to the Brushos.

Sprinkle on a mixture of Brushos (stick to the light colours) and spritz with a good blast of water, dab with a kitchen towel and dry thoroughly.

Use a mixture of Tim Holtz and Katzelkraft stamps for added interest in the background with black Archival ink.

Trim to size, mount onto black card and then white cardstock.

Beauty in simplicity ;)

Supplies Used:

Brushos (back in stock very soon)
Tim Holtz Stamp Sets – Wildflowers, Tiny things and Perspective

Hope you like it

I'm studying your technique with them. :-) Perfect added black details. You always come up with unique and original designs. I love how your creative mind works!

  2. Beautiful Brusho background and lovely resist effect! I have yet to try my Bushos on Strathmore MM paper so I'll have to try that now. Thanks! xx
