This was a brusho experiment, keeping the colours very distinct and unmuddied, also using the spritz and flick technique to get the paint to move more on the paper. I placed some splodgeaway masks on the painted background using a temporary adhesive and painted over the whole thing with black gesso.
A card made for a purple and green challenge. I put a very small amount of brusho paints through this sweet poppy stencil and spritzed and blotted until I liked the effect. I then dried the paint before drawing through the stencil with black ink.
This background was done using distress ink on a Tim Holtz layering stencil. I then drew through a sweet poppy stencil with black ink.

There has been a foodie trend for the past few years to present something cooked in three different ways on the same plate, here is a sweet poppy stencil presented three ways in one image. First the stencil was inked from behind, the paper spritzed and stencil pressed down. I blotted quickly to prevent too much bleeding of the ink. I then dried the image before replacing the stencil and inking through. Finally I drew around the stencil with a micron pen.
