AAA Cards #72

Hi There,

Time for a new challenge at AAA Cards

This time our challenge is to make a 'Clean and Simple' card using:

'A new to you technique'

I chose using brushos. I know these have been around for a while now but I had not given them a try until Kylie came to visit me in July. She taught me how to use them and I have been having fun since then.  Here is my card:




I cut the butterfly panel from a card with a mix of brushos on and then the blue background is also made using brushos. I simply layered this onto a black frame and done!

I ended up taking this photo with a black background but on reflection this was not such a good idea but too late it is been posted!

Our sponsors this week are the fabulous Stampendous

Stampendous

Our Guest Designer is the very creative Alexandra-we are so pleased to have her join us.

So what new technique will you try?

I am looking forward to seeing your cards and remember to keep them Clean and Simple-my fav!!


I will enter this into this into Darnell's NBUS challenge #7-both the frames and butterfly have never been used before.

It's Almost Here!

  4. Brushos are so much fun - a card Jill (Vickers) did last year for AAA inspired me to try them and they are so fun. Felt like a kid using them :). I love your card, I am a huge fan of butterflies (I think I can tell you are too) and I love how yours pops against the black. Super.

  7. I think I had my brushos for like 6 months before I really had fun playing with them. A combo of not quite knowing what to do with them and not achieving the result I felt others acquired. Now I so enjoy them. Your card has a beautiful blend of colors.
