It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about adding just a pinch to your project. What will you add? Share it with us at our challenge blog.
I thought of two pinches that I wanted to use for the birthday card I made. A pinch of foil and a pinch of Brusho powder. I noticed that not all Brusho colors have the same pigments in it. For example Prussian Blue consists mainly of blue tints pigment, but Grey, Black and Olive Green consists of many colors. That limits me in the use of these multi colored powders and techniques I can do. As long as you mix it with water before using it, you get the actual color.
For this time I've used a pinch of black and mixed it with water. With a brush, I applied it on the stamp and stamped it. With this technique, it's important to think about the water and pigment ratio. When you use as little water as possible in combination with the pigment, this will give you get a cleaner image definition. More water will get you a more watercolor effect.
In the video below you can see beyond the whole process from start to finish.
