We're back with another Masculine Anything Goes Challenge, hosted by yours truly.
For my card this week, I used one of the new products from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue - Brushos Crystal Colour. And I paired it with the Layering Leaves embossing folder for a fun effect.
This technique is super easy. Simply choose your Brusho colours: I used Moss Green and Gamboge. Sprinkle the colour crystals directly onto the embossing folder. I sprinkle it on the debossed side of the folder. Spritz with water and place your cardstock onto the activated colour crystals.
When using Brushos, it's best to use a cardstock that can handle a lot of water, such as watercolour paper or Shimmery White cardstock, which is what I used.
I then used the Large Letters Framelits to die-cut the word YOU from the patterned cardstock, once it was dry. I also cut the word YOU three more times from Basic Black cardstock, glued them all together, then glued them to the patterned letters.
Here's a side-view:
The hats were stamped with Early Espresso ink on Whisper White cardstock, then fussy cut. I used Mini Dimensionals to pop up a hat on each letter. Both the hats and the sentiment are from Guy Greetings.
I used Always Artichoke for the card base. Do you think the pattern almost looks like camouflage?
