Cornelia's alcohol ink on Yupo, for instance) and wanted to riff on that in my latest card for The Heart Desires.
I sprinkled some Brushos on Tim Holtz watercolor paper (my fav for this type of thing!) then spritzed. The more water there was in a section, the more blended the crystals became. Cool, huh?
I was reminded of sand at the bottom with the specks of colors and water above so went with a tropical scene. The Hero Arts die was calling my name! I colored over the fronds with a Copic to spotlight the green. I also used a Copic on gray enamel dots to create the coconuts. I was so pleased with the unexpected results. I'll definitely be coloring more enamel dots in the future.
I mounted the lot on black for a shadow effect after fluffing up the fronts and trunk with a pick. I absolutely love how this card turned out and hope you do too!
If you haven't tried Brushos, do! I loves them--loves loves loves them!
