BLISSful Brushstrokes with Birgit

February 23, 2017

Our designers have been getting inky with our newest collection of stamps, dies, and stencils—BLISS 2017, now available in our online store! This week they share their tips, techniques, and gorgeous cards featuring our new brushstroke stamps.  


How does Birgit get inky with our brushstroke stamps? Look no further than her gorgeous card with 40-539 Effulgent.



Give it a try…

Birgit’s preferred medium when working with brushstroke stamps is Caran D’Ache Neocolor Artist Crayons. She simply colors onto the stamp, lightly mists with water, and then stamps onto textured cardstock. Once dry, using an ink blending tool and foam pad, she sponges green Distress Ink near the stems. She also adds a few details with a white gel pen for a finished look. (Full supplies and instructions linked below.)


And for an artsy embellishment, Birgit has used our Creative Die 51-006 Flutters.

      Thanks Dolly! It´s a linen texture cardstock, this one is from Paper Accent, but you can use anyone with a bit texture!
