Hi Stampers. Last year, Stampin’ Up! sold a product called Brusho that was pigment sprinkles. This year, they made their own in Stampin’ Up! colors! I think these are much more vibrant and wanted to show them off. The Silhouettes from the Silhouette Scenes bundle seemed like just the right bundle to let the Pigment Sprinkles shine!
This card starts off with a Basic Black card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. I die cut the tree in Basic Black cardstock using the Sweet Silhouettes Dies and set it aside.
I then started using the pigment sprinkles on a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of watercolor paper. I sprinkled some Granny Apple Green sprinkles on the bottom and added some water and spread it around using the Aqua Painter.
For the sun, I sprinkled just a tiny bit of the Mango Melody Sprinkles and then activated it with my Aqua Painter. Finally, I added Daffodil Delight sprinkles to the rest of the layer and blended with the Aqua Painter.
After letting the layer dry fully, I stamped the girl on the swing (from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set) in Memento Black ink using my Stamparatus. I gently placed the die in the Stamparatus over the layer, so I could determine where to stamp the swing and then took it away before stamping.
Stampin’ Tip: Using the Stamparatus allowed me to ink up and stamp the girl on the swing multiple times in exactly the same spot, ensuring that the image was good and dark.
The tree was then glued to the layer using the fine-tip glue pen. I trimmed a little of the tree off the edges and then adhered the layer to my card base using snail adhesive.
Inside the card I used a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS and stamped the sentiment (also, from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set) in Memento Black ink. I, again, used the Stamparatus and stamped the child with the plane in Memento Black ink multiple times. This layer was then attached to the inside using snail adhesive.
