Waterfront CAS card

Hello and thanks for stopping by to check out today’s new papercraft project. This week the WWYS Challenge is stamping with Waterfront stamp set. Gorgeous images that will fit any occasion card, and I mean ANY occasion! I’ve made lots of all occasion cards with this set but opted today to use this stamp set to rescue a project fail. I have many projects that start out well but for whatever reason, they take a turn for the worst and I need to set it aside until I can come up with a way to go back and make good use of the work already put into the project. Last week I created a Brusho technique with video on my FB live session and the technique was fantastic. The card was not, lol. Here is one more card showing how I salvaged another Brusho panel.

Color Layering with the Stamparatus and Markers

Once I pull out my full set of Stampin’ Write Markers, I tend to keep creating. One really fun technique to use with markers is color layering with the Stamparatus. While the paper is secure in the bed of the Stamparatus, the stamp is also secure on the door. Open and close is 100 times and it will still be in position! This is where using markers to add small bits of color at a time is amazing. These palm trees were able to get a nice contour because the markers allow me to add tiny bits of color to the image. There’s another fun technique in this project as well- I salvaged a panel created from Glossy White paper, rubbing alcohol and Brusho. Below is some info about that technique as well.



Brusho Technique (for the layer)

One of the really great things about having a technique at hand is being able to customize the design for a new project.

I’ve used Brusho in several different ways so far but never in combination with Glossy White paper and rubbing alcohol. In a recent FaceBook Live video I explored a few ways to combine alcohol and inks/powdered inks with this fun Glossy paper and had fun and unique results. Be sure to watch the video (link below) for the demonstration of these techniques.

After creating several panels, I settled on the one you see in this project. First sprinkling on the Brusho and being generous with the powder, directly onto the Glossy cardstock. Then I used the Stampin’ Spritzer filled with standard Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, I used the fine mist to spray the Brusho and watch it melt into the alcohol and give these fun results on the paper.
