Taylored Expressions Blender Brushes - Day 2

So much fun to be a part of the launch of the new Blender Brushes from Taylored Expressions - and apparently the excitement is contagious, because these brushes are already sold outTaylor's doing her best to get them restocked quickly and you can head to the product page to sign up to be notified as soon as they are restocked. If you missed out yesterday, I hope you'll do that!

Today you'll be seeing projects pairing up the new brushes with TE's line of embossing folders - instead of actually embossing with my folder I decided to use it to create a monoprint! I love this Walking on Sunshine folder - instead of using it for sun rays, I wanted the rays to bring focus to my smaller image. Using the brushes, I applied Distress Oxide inks directly to the folder, blending out from light to dark (dye inks will work too, but my browns kept turning pink!).

I misted the folder with water, and then laid it onto a piece of watercolor paper. (If you do this, you may need to press the folder down flat or squish the water around to cover all the raised areas evenly.) That's it! 

I had enough ink on the folder to mist and take a second print, and that is the one I used on my card - I did the second print on Neenah cardstock and I liked the more distressed look I achieved. I brushed a little more ink into the corner so the cup would stand out more.

I colored my little coffee cup with Zig markers - the stamps I used are from the Joe To Go set, and there's an adorable matching to-go cup set that can be used with or without the stamps. So cute!

I hope you'll check out the brushes, and be sure to visit the Taylored Expressions blog for more info, videos, and other links - and remember to check the product page for the option to be contacted when they are restocked!

Thanks for stopping by!
