Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today, I’m hoping to enjoy a beautiful day outside while I watch the band and a home football game. For your inspiration, I’ve created a Follow Your Dreams with Brusho card. It’s perfect to send for a new job/promotion, graduation, encouragement, etc.
Follow Your Dreams with Brusho
For this card, I used a Balmy Blue card base.
Then, I added two tight mats: one in Very Vanilla
and the other in Balmy Blue.
Next, I used a piece of Watercolor Paper.
Before laying down any water or Brusho, I added random dots of Fine Tip Glue Pen.
Once the glue was dry, I liberally wet the watercolor paper and sprinkled on
Prussian Blue Brusho.
Tip: Tip the paper to allow the liquid to move. And sprinkle in additional Brusho
for more color/blooms of color.
When I was satisfied with the color, I spritzed the back of the watercolor paper to help it flatten.
While it was drying, I cut three “dream” from Balmy Blue, stacking them and coating
the top “dream” with Fine Tip Glue Pen for a lacquered finish.
Behind the “dream”, I added a Vellum Chase Your Dreams die cut
and loops of Silver Metallic Thread.
Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and then heat embossed in silver.
To cut the Silver Glimmer Paper pieces, I used the Twinkle Builder Punch.
To finish the inside of the card, I added a Very Vanilla mat
layered with a strip cut from the watercolor paper.
And for the coordinating envelope, I stamped the Follow Your Dreams
dream catcher in Blueberry Bushel.
As soon as I stamped, I quickly brushed it with a damp Aqua Painter
to cause the ink to bleed just slightly.
Thanks for stopping in today to see my Follow Your Dreams with Brusho card!
