WATERCOLOUR TAGS (with brushos) tutorial by Susanne


Hi my dear crafty friends!

It's Susanne writing today and I wanna give you step by step instructions for these two watercolor tags. I used one of my Brusho backgrounds. I love to play with these awesome powders.

1. Create a background with Brusho powders. I alternate in adding water with a spray bottle and Brusho pigments until I am happy.


2. I have a homemade tag stencil with which I can choose where to cut my tags from.


3. I ended up with these two backgrounds:


4. To add some texture to them I use the ARTplorations stencils Nestled CirclesSquare Links and
Tribal Swirl. Instead of adding any color through the stencils, I only add water with a spray bottle.


5. Remove the stencil and let the color react with the water. Dab it off with a paper towel. You'll end up with some pretty ghosting textures.



 6. My background is not done yet. I add some splatters for more interesst.




7. Now it's time to stamp the main images and the titles. I use black pigment ink together with the Small Birds and the Large Hummingbird stamp set.


8. The sentiments are from the Font Expressions 2 and Follow Your Arrow sets.


 9. Finally I color the images. I use Pastel Pencils for the first one...


... and colored pencils for the second.






Thank you for stopping by today!!!
xx Susanne.
