Hello friends. This week the talented Amy Sheffer is hosting the Make It Monday challenge, and she is showing us how to do faux brush lettering. I didn't stray far from Amy's design as hers was so totally perfect that I just had to CASE some of it!
I started with the "happy" from the Wet Paint stamp set and used Almost Amethyst & Lovely Lilac inks (retired SU! colors) and my Aqua Painter to do my faux brush lettering. While I don't think mine came out quite like Amy's (you really do have to THINK about where you're placing your darker color to mimic the brushstrokes!), it didn't come out too badly for a first try!! Next I added my wreath (Twig Wreath) in Green Parakeet ink (LOVE this green!!) and then started decorating with flowers and leaves from Twig Wreath and Friendly Flowers stamp sets, using Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst, Green Parakeet, & New Leaf inks. I used the Cover Plate: Pretty Frame die just like Amy did to frame my floral wreath, and then added a few sequins to finish off my card!
Make sure you check out Amy's beautiful card and video for all the how to's, and then play along right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
