It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about using powders like embossing or pigment powders.
It's been a while since I used my Brusho powders, and this challenge is perfect for this. I don't like that from the four colors I have but one has the true pigment powder of the color it should be. My black and gray, consisting of countless other colors and only if I mix it with water before I apply it, it's gray or black. Same goes for the olive color. I don't like the effect I get because of the color explosion I get, while I just want black and grey pigments. But fortunately the Prussian Blue consists 99,5% of the color that it should be. That's why I only use the Prussian Blue Brusho.
This time I've used it a bit differently than the last time (that's almost a year ago ... time flies!) I wanted the stamp to scrisp so you can see what it is. For the background I stamped the gears with Faded Jeans. The edge of the top left gear bothered me, so I wanted to blend that out. But I got a cool watercolor effect instead. That gave me the idea to do that in several places and eventually all the way around.
Despite the watercolor cardstock, the pigments of the Brusho are so strong that I didn't get much color off... I've done the edges with Black Soot Distress Crayon. Yes, I know, it's my new way to darken up the edges lately.
