waterbrush instructions

Ok....i took a piece of white daisy cardstock...and stamped blooming flourishes with black ink. I didn't really plan on how to place the flourish's just spread them out. I used a hollyhock marker (ctmh of course) to color in afew pieces on stamped image, I also used cocoa, desert sand, bamboo & chocolate markers. I thought I would randomly color in with some goldrush...but don't have a marker, so I used a waterbrush & ended up coloring the entire background in with it. I Torn vellum & spread two way adhesive on edges, sprinkled with prisma glitter....and torn a cranberry piece to mat on it. Used a few brads to hold in place. Then I stamped greeting with black, heat embossed with fine detail powder...voila!
Now this one....I used a brayer with taffy ink....spread all over white daisy paper. Then stamped flourish' with archival black...colored in...used white gel pen & some markers to color it in. THen I put a coluzzle circle on paper...covered up created image (which I treid to clear emboss...but most of the ink had dreid so it didn't work well) and brayered on goldrush....i stamped flower on white, heat embossed and colored it in. used some white daisy to distress...and a hinge...just for fun

This is my favorite card of yours! It was difficult to choose a fave, but this is the one! I love using my brayer and I love all the techniques you used, heat embossing, masking, brayering, spotlight, and coloring! I NEED this set! Thanks for commenting on my yellow bananas! The ones they usually sell never turn yellow, just green to rotten! Are you going to make something with yellow? If so DO post it! LOL... I have sunflower and sunkiss yellow!

I don't know how I missed this!!! I love the idea of using circles to reverse mask. I should try this. I wonder where on a layout I could use this..........hmmm something to think about while on the road..
