Waterfront Sayings and Blue Skies Ahead

I used two of the greeting from Stampin’ Up!’s Waterfront stamp set, one on the outside and the matching one on the inside on my Friends card.

Waterfront Stampin' Up! Special Delivery Jeannine Tarrio

1. To create this card I masked off an area on watercolor paper for the “window”. I then used Brusho® Crystal Colour sprinkled on an acrylic block and an Aquapainter to color the sky and grass inside the masked off area. Then carefully remove the Painters tape. Using a journalling pen I doodle the border.
2. Adhere the watercolor paper to the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock. Then adhere to the Marina Mist Cardstock and them the Whisper White card base. Using Memento Black ink, stamp words on front of card and on the inside.
3. Stamp the girl from the Birthday Delivery stamp set on Watercolor Paper and then color with Stampin’ Blends. Then die cut and adhere image to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. That’s It!
Paper sizes:
Whisper White 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Marina Mist 4″ x 5 1/4″
Rich Razzleberry 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
Watercolor Paper 3″ x 4 1/4″

Save the Date for March 17, 2018.  Details tomorrow.  Happy stamping.

Are You on the Fence About Brusho® Crystals Colours?

Well all I can say is, once you try them, you will love them!!! You have seen some of my previous posts using the Brusho® Colour Crystals and here is another card:

Jeannine Tarrio Brusho Crystal Colours

This one is done on watercolor paper, and reminded me of a stormy sea. I chose the anchor and saying from Guy Greetings (page 36 in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017-2018 Annual catalog). I first stamped in Basic Black, however, it did not show enough, so I restamped in Versamark and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. You can see a little bit of the shadow from the black, I should have used my new Stamparatus.
Once stamped I chose Daffodil Delight for the mat and Dapper Denim Cardstock for the card base.
Tip: When using the crystals, experiment with the different colors, and methods: wet on wet, dry on wet, wet on dry, and dry on dry and then spritzing, splattering, aquapainter, mixing on an acrylic block, etc. The possibilities are endless.
I will be having a class on using the Brusho®  Crystal Colours later this month. If you would like to attend this class, contact me for details.

Happy Stamping!
