Flirty Peekaboo Peacock

I am so in love with Brusho Crystal Colours – they are so vibrant! I used Red and Yellow to make this gorgeous background. To work with the Brusho powder, I taped the watercolor paper down using Washi Tape onto a piece of cardboard. It helps to keep it from curling too much from all the water and when it’s all dry and you remove the Washi tape, it makes a beautiful border. Using the Aqua Painter, I covered the entire piece in plain water. Then I sprinkled on the Brusho powders and spritzed water on to move it around a bit. I love the embossed silver on it, too. For the peacock’s tail, I used sponge daubers to put Peekaboo Peach on the bottom and Flirty Flamingo on the top, being careful to blend slightly for continuous color. After I added the body in Melon Mambo, I fussy cut the peacock out to pop it up with Dimensionals. This color combo is awesome together!

Dragonfly Thoughts

Here’s an encore using the Dragonfly Dreams bundle and some lovely accessories.  This is a “Thinking of You” card that I’m sending to a long-distance friend. I hope it puts a smile on her face!

I die cut the intricate dragonfly die in blushing bride. Layered behind it is the dragonfly’s wings that are stamped in Sahara Sand. Then I used the “Rock n Roll” technique to roll the bottom of the stamp along the Soft Sky ink pad. Makes for a lovely, muted background behind the intricate one.
