Brutus Monroe - Let Your Light Shine

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I have a card to share with you that I am so proud of!  This turned out better than I expected.  Please visit the Brutus Monroe online shop - unfortunately, at this time, the Wild Lines set is out of stock but crossing fingers it'll be back soon.

BRU3785-2 Wild Lines
BRU1613 Safari
BRU3853 Safari Stripes 4x4 Stencil
BRU1651 Safari Conversation Clippings
BRU4034 Chroma Glaze - Black Pearl
BRU4616 Masking Paper - 4.25"x5.5"

I created this encouragement card featuring the Wild Lines and Safari stamp sets.  Firstly, I created the base layer by slathering on the Chroma glaze through the stencil.  This took some time as the stencil is 4x4 and I'm using a 4x5.25 layer of card stock.  After the first side dried I did the second side and set that aside dry.  Then using various Distress Oxide inks I went about to create this beautifully ink blended background.  Stamped the images onto the background and colored in using black marker to create the silhouettes.  The birds are random dies.  Then I finished off the card by foiling a sentiment from the Conversation Clippings with gold foil.

Did you know that the Brutus Monroe has a great selection of Conversation Clippings and Card Panels that you can foil using Deco Foil and a heat source such as a laminator?  If not, now you do!  The price point is great and they are a great element for your cards!

Thank you again for your visit!
