Taylored Expressions Blender Brushes Day 2...


Did you see yesterday's release of Blender Brushes from Taylored Expressions?  They are amazing!!  While they are currently sold out, more are on their way so stay tuned!

I wanted to share another project today using embossing folders and blending brushes.  One of Taylor's embossing folders is called Subway Tiles.  Its one of my favorites!  I didn't want a solid gray background and I wanted the "grout" to stay white so I was pretty happy to see the result of using the blender brush directly on the embossing folder....

The background came out with more of a wash look than a solid inked look.  I was happy with that!  Taylored's Earl Gray ink worked perfectly!

I used a monster and sentiment from the set called Little Monsters.  The perfect clean and simple birthday card for a little one!

 BLENDER BRUSH PROJECT

I have a project to share today using the Taylored stencil called Feathered.  Of course, I used the new brushes to create this fun rainbow look....

I did a rainbow of colors on the front panel (all ink colors are linked below) and then cut an inch off the top.  This way it fits perfectly on a white card base but also leaves some white space at the top for my favorite hello die.  Before adding it to the card base, I scored 2 lines along the bottom just for another little detail.

The best feature of these brushes is the white bristles.  You have all the colors to use for the specific inks and you can see the colors on the brushes.  So helpful!

I die cut the hello and its shadow and added them to the top of the card to finish it off.

MFT June Card Kit Day 3...

I decided to do some actual watercoloring today!  I am kinda proud of myself because this is not usually something I attempt.  LOL!  But here it is with the June MFT Kit....

MFT June Kit

Thse blooms are so gorgeous.  I used my Zigs to add in the color.  After that was done, I put a mask over the blooms and then did a little splatter.  I added in the birthday wishes die in glitter cardstock to finish it off!

MFT June Kit

So glad you stopped by today!  Head on over to the MFT Blog to see all about the June Kit!

Have a great day!

MFT June Card Kit Day 2...



Welcome to day 2 of the MFT June Card Kit Countdown.  This amazing new kit will be available tomorrow, Tuesday, June 25th at 9am CST.  This is an awesome new kit that comes with watercolor paper and ever some new watercolor powder that coordinates with the paper in the kit.  

All that being said, I wanted to showcase how you can use this card in clean and simple ways.  Yesterday, I showed a die cut version.  Today I am doing a little masking and ink blending.  Keeping the blooms black and white is a quick and simple way to use the image but with a pop!  

MFT June Kit

To create this card, I stamped the image on the white cardstock.  Next, I die cut some masking paper with the coordinating die.  I added the mask over the top of the flower image.  I blended in some light blue distress ink and then added in some painters tape over the top and did a little more ink blending for darker stripes.  Once I removed the tape and the masked die cut, I was left with a fun striped focal point.  I added in a little bit of white paint splatter and then finished it off with the Sweet Hello Die-namics in black fun foam and then topped it off with black card stock.  

MFT June Kit

I will have one last card to share with you tomorrow and I am actually going to do some watercoloring!  Yay!

Thanks for coming by today!  Have a great day!
