DEADLY SWEET-Brutus|Monroe Design Team Post


Good Afternoon !!! I'm here to share this fun card I made for the B|M Design Team. I love Serena Bee and her stamp set, her creepy-cute style is such an inspiration to me.  Here is how I made the card...

1. I stamped the cone, and then stamped over it with the topper. I colored in the images using the Brutus|Monroe Inks as a watercolor. I'll add a link below to Christopher Alan Designs YouTube Video on how to use the inks as watercolors. I fussy cut out the ice cream cone, inked the edges and  layered it  on a piece of coordinating card stock. I also fussy cut that, and inked the edges.  
2. I stamped the "you are deadly sweet!" sentiment. fussy cut it and added it on a coordinating banner flag. I  inked the edges with a sponge dauber and Brutus|Monroe Premium Chalk Ink in OZ. 
3. This is my favorite card layout because it's so easy. I always just use scraps and chop them to fit to my liking. After all my layers are adhered to my pre-made card base I add my image and sentiment using adhesive foam tape. 
4. To finish the card I added some enamel dots from my stash. 
Here is the link on the water color technique:
