Hi crafty friends! Today I wanted to share a great idea ( which is not my own ) as an alternative to the stencil brushes out on the market. If you'd thought about purchasing the new Clarity Stencil Brushes or the Inky Duster brushes and I know there are others as well, then you know they can be a bit pricey! And, I am sure they are worth the money.
Most of us have more than one use for one brush as we use several inks at a time in our projects. So, today, my friend Laurie showed on your YouTube channel and Instagram about this $2.00 Make-up brush that can be picked up in several different places such as Wal-Mart, Target, online at Amazon, the ELF website, etc.
I've always loved the look of those soft backgrounds, but I am guilty of having a heavy hand most of the time with my ink blending tools. So, when I saw this idea from Laurie, I had to give it a try for myself!!
It works beautifully, and the brush is super easy to clean to move to different colors in one sitting!
I can achieve these soft backgrounds really easy, and if I wanted heavier concentrated color, I could achieve that too, but it would take a bit longer. I would use my normal ink blending tool at that point!
I wanted to show you this wonderful idea, and I also wanted to share the full card making process. I die cut a piece of black card stock from the Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves die ( one of my current favorites) and my sentiments come from the Celebrate set from Neat and Tangled
I have the video tutorial as well as the supply list below if you were wondering what I used! Thank you all for stopping by today!! See you soon!
