Aqua Pigments - Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! It's another blog hop Wednesday for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team, and this week were playing with Aqua Pigments! For those of you who don't know, aqua pigments are liquid watercolors and Brutus Monroe offers quite a selection of colors, including metallic collections. They also offer a subscription where you get one new exclusive color each month. I used a wet-on-wet technique for this background, and the colors Pink, Yellow-Orange and Gilded.

I started by brushing the aqua pigment paper with clean water, and I dropped the Pink and Yellow-Orange aqua pigments directly onto the wet paper, which causes the color to "bloom". I used a heat tool to dry it, and then splattered those two colors along with the Gilded aqua pigment onto the paper. I dried it again with the heat tool. I used a fan-shaped paintbrush to gently brush DecoFoil Gel onto the edges of the painted area, and then ran it through the laminator with Champagne DecoFoil. This gives it a brushed/sketchy texture! I heat embossed the sentiments onto Raven cardstock with Gilded EP, and fussy cut around the word "enjoy". I popped the sentiments up with foam tape, and matted the card front on Gilded Gitterstock, and then Raven cardstock.

Next hop on over to Jess' blog to see her beautiful project!
