Dry Brushed Clouds

Wednesday, July 20, 2011



Today I have another card using the dry brushing technique that Lisa used in this week's Make It Monday video.  Once again I used my white StazOn reinker in place of white paint.  This time instead of dry brushing on cardstock, I used the technique on clear die cut clouds.  I love the effect.  It makes the clouds appear to have some movement.

I masked the birdhouse from Bird Watching to create a pole for my Love Lives Here house. 


Have a wonderful day!


Cardstock: PTI White, Hawaiian Shores
Stamps: PTI Love Lives Here, Bird Watching
Ink: Memento Black
Other: LLH Die, Little Bitty Bird Die, Felt, Clear Cardstock, White StazOn Reinker, Corner Rounder

  6. Very cute card. I love those clouds. I agree they look like they have movement. The flowers and grass at the base of the birdhouse are a great touch.
