Sending Love.......

Playing with Brusho's.....
Today's Card...
I have used the Stamplorations Two Blooms Stencil ....
I had to put on removable glue, as well as masking tape 
 to hold the stencil down, as it is so fine in places, for this technique.
I was concerned water would migrate underneath.

The stencil was then sprinkled with several shades of Brusho's 
and sprayed with water.
The removal was a little tricky because of the glue etc 
but I had to remove it as quick as I could.
I was really please as there was not much water seepage 
and the colours blended so well.
Ironically there was no loose specks from the brusho's ...which is rare for me....
What did I do then? splattered in ink!
 I popped on this photo to show the reverse image... 
I will be playing with this technique again x
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  1. Wow! I am so impressed with your stenciling and brushos! I just know that I would have a complete mess!! LOL!! It looks absolutely stunning and I love the black splatters over your design too! Have a great weekend! HUGS

  2. That is really beautiful! I at first thought this was a a stamp. It is a very nice stencil and you got great results with brushos and no seeping under, etc. TFS!

  3. Stunning design Mac! LOVE those bold blooms and the added splatters! LOL Also love the reverse image too . . . two for one! Have a wonderful weekend my friend! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx

  9. Stunning!! I am impressed how you managed to do this without any seepage underneath the stencil. It loks FABulous!! The black ink splatters are the icing on the cake. Love the reverse stencil too! xx

  10. Just a gorgeous flower design Mac, love the color and technique.

    Hugs diane

  11. Where are those speckles when you want them? This is AMAZING, Mac! Such a crisp stencil print and it's so pretty with the touches of black! The reverse is pretty too. Can't wait to see what you do with that! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!

  12. I had no idea this could be done with a stencil! Your flower should be framed!

  13. OMG Mac, I am so impressed with how well your Brushos stenciled flowers turned out. I can't believe you used a stencil and not a stamp. I must try your technique. Was that a spray removable glue? What brand. I have never used before. TFS and joining us again Mac at CAS Watercolour. Hugs.

    1. Hi Nancy...I have tried sprays but find I can't always clean up the stencils that well (they stay sticky?) so I tried something new this time. I used Elmers repositionable glue stick. I am sure any brand would work but it was like a fine film which appears to have helped with the seepage. This was such an intricate stencil I honestly didn't think it would work. I will be trying this technique again x Thanks for stopping by x

  14. Mac - what can I say but marvelous work and a stunning card!! Well done.

  15. I'm amazed that you used Brushos with such control! I tried using them with a stencil once but the the seepage just ruined it. This is gorgeous.

  16. Oh it's gorgoeus and well done to you for getting such a clean image!

  17. I am "ooohing and ahhhing" over your cards! They are FABU! I ♥ the reverse image, what a surprise that you shared that one too. So glad you joined us at Cupcake Inspirations this week! Beautiful work! Wendy DT

  18. Crumbs, Mac, you did that with Brushos?! It looks the same as a fine watercolor painting that someone spent, I don't know, a year a half creating! I've got to get my Brushos back out! Pinning!! Hugs, Darnell

  19. WOW! What bold and beautiful inking of this fantastic stencil! Love this! Hugs, Autumn

  20. OOOO, OOO, OO! I love this. Great technique, beautifully done. Thanks for playing along at HLS WC Challenge.

  21. This is fabulous Mac and the Brusho colour is so pretty. This is making me wish I had some Brushos even more! x

  22. Stunning card! Love that flower image! So pretty!!

    Thank you very much for joining us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


  23. Your stencilled flowers turned out beautifully! Wonderful layout too with the splatters, the striped strip down one side, and the sentiment overlapping the flowers. Thanks for joining us at CAS Watercolour.

  24. That is awesome! I've tried this before and could never get it to work. Use of the glue all over the stencil is clearly the key. Wonderful vibrant colours and I love the bold black sentiment. Brilliant. Thank you for joining us at the HLS Watercolor Challenge. Jenny x

  25. This is stunning! Great job with the stencil. Thanks for playing along with the STAMPlorations CAS Challenge xx

  27. This is so beautiful! Love the flowers! Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations!!!

  28. I just love that striped edge. Great card. x
