Rainbow Brushos Round One

Hello all you lovely crafters (and non-crafters, hi Mom!!!) When you read this I am enjoying an amazing time skiing the Grandvalira in Andorra. So far we have enjoyed amazing snow and sunshine but also high winds and a bit of rain. The Culinary Consultant is working really hard to pick up this whole skiing malarkey and although I'm a very good skier I have no idea how to teach him as I've been skiing since I was a kid. It's hard to tell someone what to do if you only do it out of muscle memory.

What I can do is tell you how I made this colourful rainbow card. If you follow my blog you know rainbow is my favourite colour and I tend to go back to it over and over again. For this card I simply used some washi tape to attach the STAMPlorations Retro Circles stencil to some watercolour card, sprinkled it with Brushos and spritzed it with water. I'll show you in another post what I did with the stencil which was totally covered in those beautiful Brushos. Then all I did was stamp the first part of the sentiment with STAMPlorations Hashtag authenthic and die cut the Amazing from a scrap of black card adding some Crystal Effects to add that gorgeous glossy shine.
