Default WT555 ~ 10/29/2015 ~ Brush It Up!

Brush up your Shakespeare cards today!


It's Sabrina here as your hostess this week, and I am challenging you to use brushwork of some sort on your cards today. You must use a brush - not just an image of one , though of course it's fine to do that too.


At the most basic level you can just use a brush for colouring, but I hope you will challenge yourself to do something a little different and stretch yourself - that's how we grow and develop, after all.

Ideas to try - brushstroke painting; dry brush painting; tole painting on your card; use brushes for adding chalk, Perfect Pearls or similar mediums either direct to paper or after stamping with Versamark; use a stipple or stencil brush; use a brush to add spatters to your card. I often use a soft brush and chalk pastels scraped over a card to create a soft background.



When you've brushed up your card, upload it with the keyword WT555, and then come back and share a link here - that makes it easy for people to find your card .




Here's a link to our WT555 Brush It Up! gallery



Here's a link to my sample, I stretched myself by adding big brushtrokes with a wash brush, and spattering: WT555 Art


If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Thank you for providing great inspiring samples, Linda and Lisa!

Thanks, Sabrina, for having a challenge which meshed with today's HYCCT. I used an OLD tole painting technique of brush stroke flowers.

PINK THANK YOU

IRL you can see the brushstrokes but in the picture it wouldn't show up.

I used an old toothbrush to dry brush with white paint and also to add paint spatter.

Thanks for the challenge!

Thanks for the challenge. Not only did I pick up a rarely used brush, but a pen as well.

Hi Sabrina, I tried the salt technique for the first time on this card- I used my aqua painter to brush on the reinker colors -so I thought it qualified for your challenge

Thanks for the Challenge - I had so much fun adding 'dry-brushing' using white pigment ink on my Halloween scene card.

Hope you like it

I was so excited to see this challenge to make a card using brushes! I recently signed up for the Online Class for watercolors and have been using brushes on a daily basis for homework samples. How cool to be able to practice what I've learned on the card for this challenge.

Here is my brush-work card:
