Wish Big

Hi all!  Angel here and I'm so happy to be posting here on the BRI blog!  :D  I'm sure you all haven't seen nearly enough watercolored backgrounds in crafty land recently, but here's another one just in case, ha!  The stars and sentiment are from the MFT Count the Stars stamp set.  The I embossed the stars on watercolor paper with liquid platinum EP. I then used 3 of my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers - a yellow, pink and purple - to create the background.  I used the yellow inside the stars and since they were embossed, the colors didn't bleed into that area (I didn't want them to, so that worked well!).  I then took the purple and pink markers and made swipes with them here and there.  Next, I spritzed the entire sheet until it was pretty damp (but not too much) and held the sheet up and moved the water around until I was happy with it.  Then I blasted it with my heat gun.  I decided I wanted a little more purple, so I added a few more swipes, then repeated the process.  I then cut the layer using the MFT Inside & Out diagonal stitched rectangle STAX.  I really love the detail it leaves on the edges!  The sentiment was stamped on vellum with MFT hybrid black licorice ink then blasted with my heat gun so that it didn't smudge.  The little scalloped edge peeking out on the left was cut out of a sheet of designer paper from the Cottage Living paper pad.  Some gold sequins added here and there and done!



Thanks for stopping by!
