It's the 12th of the month, and a group of friends on Split Coast have formed a "Hot Mess" challenge group. The only requirement is that your project is messy to create!
Last month was my first time using Brusho water color powders, and I learned a lot. So I decided to continue the learning and use them again.
Here's my 3rd or 4th attempt...who's counting? Hahaha!
This is a 6x6 card, because the stencil is about that size. It's on 110# white stock, but not watercolor paper. I misted lightly it with water, tapped out small amounts of Brusho powders onto a coated paper plate for a palette. Then mixed water into each powder with a small paintbrush.
The sun is Lemon Yellow, the sky is Turquoise and the ground is Mossy Green with some added Lemon Yellow.
After allowing the panel to dry I sprayed temporary adhesive on the back of a thin plastic stencil: "Mini Butterfly Meadow" by The Crafters Workshop. I used sponge daubers to add colors using Stampin' Up colors: Mellon Mambo, Emerald Envy and Bumblebee.
I really held my breath lifting the stencil up, fearing that it would tear my panel. But slowly separating it was the key.
I did use glue to adhere each panel together due to the moisture in the image. Finished off the image with some Stickles and a ribbon.
