Please scroll down to see my CAS on Sunday GD post.
I intended to try dry brushing months ago after getting instructions from a designer--even bought a new brush. Layered dry brushing is the theme for PTI MIM, so I was determined to finally give it a go.
I mixed pearl white acrylic paint with Distress Stain tarnished brass. First I tried using 140 lb wc paper, but it was too textured & I didn't brush enough of the paint out of my brush. Today I tried using Bristol paper instead & like it much better. My second layer is made by adding a little Crimson Color Burst powder to the mixture. Instead of stamping on the panel, I die cut it into a frame with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles. My latest PTI order included Spruce & Sprigs--so glad to finally have this beautiful stamp set. The dies were out of stock, but Nancy sent me some to use until I can get them. My inks are Pinefeather, Mint Julep, New Leaf, Saffron Spice & Pale Peony. The center rectangle is Fine Linen cardstock lightly sponged with Saffron Spice. I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Flurries in Pinefeather & the mat is a piece of Pinefeather cardstock.
I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.
