Wow we are already half way through April.. Weather is getting nicer. Feb/March was the Wettest in Washington state. Over 16 inches of rain. That is more than we get in a year.. I guess we are living up to our wet weather reputation for Washington..LOL
It's Friday so it's Free Friday at Catch the bug.. We have another fun image.
This is the fun cute image called FanSBFlowers... Sunbonnet Sue image.
I have been seeing crafters using brushes ran across ink pads and transferred to card stock.. I don't know the name of the brushes but did see they were quite expensive.. SO cleaning out my vanity I saw a pack of unused makeup brushes.. HUM will it work?? so I tried using the blusher brush and my Ranger inks and transferred it to the card stock.. This is the background. I like the soft look it gives. I also spritzed with water and dried. I think I will try this technique again. I can't compare it to the expensive brushes, I wish I had a sample of expensive vs. make up brushes but this will work fine for me. What do you think?? now I have a lot of Bare essential powder eye make up (A LOT) since I am retired I don't wear make up any more so I have to try to figure out what crafty things I can do with it.. They are quite expensive and don't want to throw away.. Any suggestions????
I stamped the Hero arts sentiment then cut the card down. I took some Ranger ink and ran it down the right side of the card base. I then took some colored twine (using Ranger ink) and added it to the card stock and added this to the card base.
I colored the image with copics and cut out with a My Favorite Things circle die. I added this on foam dots to the card base. I took two flowers which are white from Pizzaz a plenty and used Ranger inks and colored them so they had some of the image flower colors. I spritzed with water to blend the colors and added a brad center. I added some white gel pen just to the bottom of the apron. This screams spring.. Yes I love spring but love summer more..
hope you find time to pick up this free image.
