Anyone else waiting on Spring? I don't know about you but when I think of Spring, weddings, babies, and flowers all come to mind. Today I have a wedding themed card to share with you. This card features a bell image from Pickled Potpourri Designs' Brides stamp set. I colored the image with ProMarkers. I waited a few minutes and then applied some Goosebumps Texture Spray to the bells to give them a little shimmer.
I keep a waterbrush filled with this spray, it applies very similarly to the clear Wink of Stella brush marker pen! It's far more economical compared the Wink of Stella pen, you can refill your waterbrush pen at least 4 to 5 times if not more using one bottle of this spray! I paid about $3 for the bottle using a 40% off coupon from Michaels.
The most noticeable difference between the Wink of Stella brush pen and the Goosebumps Texture Spray is that there is a much greater water content in the spray, so you have to be careful when applying it. I just give my waterbrush a good shake, squeeze a little of the spray on a non-stick craft mat, dab the tip of my brush on a paper towel, and then dip it into my spray puddle and then paint it on my image.
Sometimes the water brushes can be a little finicky and will release too much liquid when you squeeze it. Using this method will help you to control the amount of liquid released much more easily, and will prevent you from ruining your projects if too much liquid is expelled. You could also use a regular dry paint brush instead of a waterbrush. I hope that you find this little tip to be helpful!
