Occasion Catalog Sneak Peek!

I've been hearing from some of my customers that their Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs have started to make it to their mailbox....yay! I am so happy to hear this. Enjoy looking at the new products everyone and creating a new wishlist. Speaking of wishlists, here's one you can print for your own use:


Brusho Crystal Colour.....oh my goodness you are going to love this new product! Watercolor ink crystals you mix with water and viola!

This is how I made my masterpiece. I started out by using the new stamp set called Beautiful Day. I embossed the butterfly image using VersaMark Ink, White Embossing Powder and Watercolor Paper:

I heated the powder with my Heat Tool:

I used an Aqua Painter to add water to the inside of the butterfly and then sprinkled the orange and yellow shades of the Brusho over the water:

I also used my Aqua Painter to paint with the crystals. See the containers below? There are five total and when you receive them, pierce a hole or two in the center to create a "shaker". I used my Paper Piercing Tool to add the holes!

When I was happy with the coloring, I placed a tissue over the image to pick up the excess wet spots. I did pat down a little with my fingertips:

See what happens? Isn't the butterfly pretty?

I then fussy-cut using my Paper Snips:

My next step was to use a second piece of Watercolor Paper and this time, I sprinkled the crystals first and then used a Stampin' Spritzer to lightly add a mist of water to create these speckles of color:

Once dry, I stamped the sentiment, glued to my other two layers and adhered the butterfly with Stampin' Dimensionals!

It's hard to see in the photo's, I also added a few Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes in the background:
