This card is for the following challenges:

CASology - Circles

Less Is More - Something shiny

I used a metallic red card stock to cut the circles and sentiment from after I adhered some Stick It to the back of the card stock.  The circles die is from Simon Says Stamp and the sentiment die is from Winnie & Walter.

It's been a week since I've been able to get time to make anything! I used a watercolor panel that I created last week when I was playing with Brushos:

I sprinkled Leaf Green and Turquoise powders onto water color paper and spritzed with water until I liked the coverage I got.  Before it was completely dried I used a Heidi Swapp stencil with butterflies and dabbed a wet baby wipe to remove some of the color.

I used the panel for the SCS Inspiration Challenge. I was inspired by the panel on the right of the three of the Blossom Painting.  I used the outline image from a Rubbernecker 2 step stamp set and then painted the flower in with purple Brusho mixed with water and a paint brush.  The white highlights were done with a white Sharpie paint pen.  The sentiment is from a different Rubbernecker set - I colored the sentiment with a black Memento marker and then stamped it onto the card base.

So Very Grateful

Here is another piece using Brushos for the background and gold embossing for the leaf and sentiment. The sentiment is NBUS - from WPlus9 latest release. I love the font! After creating the panel I used SSS stitched rectangle die to cut it out and then mounted it on fun foam onto the card base.

Playing With New Schtuf! Brushos

I finally am brushing up on Brushos!  I saw on Sandy Allnock's blog a site of the artist who authored Brusho Secrets. I bought the eBook this morning and I have been playing today - the first day in weeks where I didn't have something I HAD to do.  So I used this new eBook and went through the first 6 lessons learning how to use the Brushos in different ways.  This is a freehand apple using 3 colors of Brushos and 3 different techniques.  It was so much fun.

I will sneak this in under the wire to Darnell's NBUS Challenge #5.

New Year - New NBUS!

In a few days we are starting a new year on the Jewish calendar.  I have been making new year cards to raffle off at my temple to raise money and also to send to my friends and family.  This is one of the cards I made.  I used several PaperTrey stamp sets (NBUS) and the Cover Plate: Comic Strip die (NBUS). This is a case of Lizzy Jones' card.
