Take a blank card and cover with the Journal Texture 2 using modeling paste and leave to set. Next spritz card over with water and then sprinkle over with Brusho powder. I used Rose Red and Lemon which created this ombre effect.

I then cut out a flag and added Rose Red Brusho powder over it and once dry i used the Starlight stencil over the top. I then mixed some Lemon Brusho Powder with modeling paste and applied it over the flag using the Journal Textures 6 stencil. I glued lace across the top and then stuck it down.

I used pink bakers twine and wrapped it around the top of the card and added a flower to the corner of the flag.

I finished off the card by stamping out a sentiment onto card and painted Lemon Brusho powder over the top before adding it onto the card. I added sequins to finish.

How To Create A Stunning Butterfly Card Using Brushos

Hi all

I have a nature themed card to share today. I created a project that had a lot of texture and i experimented with different green tones.

I started by painting the whole card with Lime Green Brusho Powder and then i added a few darker greens over the top. Next i added gesso to the centre and added Leaf Green over the top before adding a stencil down the middle and then Olive and Emerald Green on top.

i dyed the cheese cloth with Lime and Leaf Green and dried it off with a heat tool before gluing it to the card. The butterfly i printed off and coloured by spritzing with water first and then sprinkling differnent colours over the top. I guided the colout with a water pen and dabbed off any excess ink.

I finished off the card by adding a texture stamp around the edge and some sequins to the butterfly wings.

How To Create A Stunning Summer Shaker Card

Hi all

Today i have a fun summer themed shaker card to share today. The papers are from the Summer Feelings collect avalible from Cherish the memory.

Start off by covering a 6 x6 card with blue paper and then half the card with the wood effect paper.

To create the shaker box you just need a set of nesting dies. Choose the size you want the box to be and pop the smaller nesting die inside the larger one to make a frame. Cut out two frames from paper and craft foam. If the craft foam is a distracting colour you can paint over it with acrylic paint.

Next cut out a sheet of pattetened paper for the base using the largest die and again out of acetate for the window.

Glue the craft foam frame to the base and leave to dry before adding micro beads and glitter shapes.

Seal the bax with the acetate top and once that has dried, add the frame cut from pattetened paper.

Adhere the bix to the catd and then glue cheese cloth around it like a frame.

Add micro beads, craft stones and die cuts around the cheese cloth frame.

You can leave the chese cloth as it is or dab blue ink over it to add a bit of colour. I used watered down acrylic paint on mine.

How To Add Glitter To Projects With Best Glue Ever

Hi all

I have a card to share and i used ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever to add the glitter. With this glue the glitter will stay pit and not flake off again like it does with other types of glue.

I started by covering a 5 x 7 card with the large butterfly pattern from My Botanical Garden Collection and then i added a few blobs of Best Glue Ever and spread it across the edge of the wings.

I then sprinkled over fine teal glitter and tapped off the excess.

I finished the card off by stamping out a verse in the top corners in sea green ink.
