Blue Stars

Blue Stars Heather Telford

The Brushos are still sitting on my desk for easy access allowing me to create more pretty patterns. Blue happens to be my favourite colour so I was quite happy  the blends and patterns happening on this panel. To create these blue stars I stamped in water then sprinkled some brusho over the water. I used a paintbrush to fill the stars with brusho blues and a spritzer to spread the colour outside the outlines. When I was almost finished painting I spritzed with blue pearl-ex spray to add some shimmer and sheen. The sentiment is stamped in two blues, something I do when I don’t have the exact match in ink.

Inks: Versafine majestic blue and deep lagoon (ImagineCrafts/Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Canson 100% cotton hot pressed watercolour paper, blue cardstock
