I just LOVE this card made with the Sale-a-bration stamp set available FREE with a purchase of only 60€!  I used thick Aquarelle paper from SU to take advantage of the beautiful deep pigment of my BRUSHO CHRYSTALS and fabulous water color effects easily achievable with this great product!

First, I stamped my background with Versamark ink and then heat-embossed with white embossing powder. This is a great technique for creating fun background designs. After this, I applied water with a water tank brush and sprinkled Brusho VERY sparingly on each area, letting it dry first before moving onto the next color.  The most difficult part of this technique is the „waiting“ for it to dry.  I am not very patient when I am in the flow 😀 !  For people like me, I suggest you use your heat gun.  But be aware that using your heat gun will change your resulting design. I did one card practicing PATIENCE and one IMPATIENCE card, the results are both very good BUT, to be honest,  the „patient“ card had more deepth of color, dimension and more interesting designs.

What I thought about trying next time, was perhaps to take one large piece of aquarelle paper (for example A3) and do a huge background all at once, then chop it up later into different sizes to fit the cards or other pieces I wish to create, as I go along.  Just an idea!

Hope you have a great weekend!
