I'm back with another project that began on an Epson SureColor P600 – it handles many different media types, thicknesses and paper sizes, and this piece was printed on watercolor paper. The ink is waterproof, so I had some fun with Brusho, and quite a bit of water.
Lori enlarged the Everything's Rosy digital stamp from Power Poppy and printed it twice for me - I used greys and a coral red to color the top image, and a more triadic color set to color the second image. Both images yielded 2 cards each! I love these images in a larger scale.
I wanted to keep the cards cohesive by using a common background paper, so I chose this vintage text background. The small sentiments are from various other Power Poppy sets. I have a bolt of this trim, so I added a few snips in this set. I used a pretty liberal amount of water on my first application of Brusho, then let that dry and painted in details in deeper shades.
For the more colorful image, I used a grid die to cut one portion into squares. This coloring is done with Brusho and some other mediums (which I should have written down... I don't remember any more what they were! Looks like more activated Brusho and some pencils?)
I thought about making a bookmark out of the leftover portion, but it worked so nicely on this smaller card size, it ended up there. The card above is 5" square, which leaves room for a 3.5" x 5.5" card - that's a great little size for thank you notes, and I always need those!
I hope you'll take a peek at the printer review tomorrow - I'll link it up tomorrow when I tell you about this week's SCS tutorial. :)
