Dust away

Doing some holiday dusting here ... color dusting that is!  got out
my color dusters which are a type of stipple brushes ... just stubby with "lighter" bristles.  on a piece of white cardstock I first stamped my images with Staz-on black ink because it dries fast and wouldn't smear when I dusted on the color inks.  so I took the color duster and dusted or sweeped on the blue ink in the center of the card first, then the brown inks.  yes, there are three brown inks blended together on the top and bottom of the card.  next remove the moon mask and add glitter for a sparkly moon.  added highlights with white gel pen.  Last just layered onto cardstocks (you know I like my layers) that I cut out and embossed with dot folder.

  1. Hi Sue, From what I can see, your card looks fabulous! I have watched your posts for sometime now. My only issue is that your pictures are way to small. I have tried clicking on them to make them bigger and they stay small. It is really hard to see them and I have (I think) seen some great art work from you. Could you please try to make you photos bigger. Thank you for sharing! Happy Stamping!

    1. Lori, thank you for visiting my blog and the nice comments on my cards. I'm sorry when you click on the photos they don't enlarge....I don't understand why...I've asked other to check it out and it works for them. maybe it's a blogger glitch.

  2. What a great technique! Really beautiful and festive card! Thank you for joining us at ATSM this week!
