Thank You

Here I am again, having ever more fun with Bister Wood Stains from I Brake For Stamps HERE   . . .

The method is so simple:  dip a small soft brush into the Bister jar and tap the powders onto watercolor paper, holding the brush about two inches above the paper.  I tapped the colors in rows for this card, but random areas look wonderful also.  Let the stray grains fall where they may as this makes for a nice soft blend.  Repeat with as many colors as you wish (Bister has eight so far – I hope they add Orange and Purple to their line).

Then mist with your water sprayer until the colors begin to move.  Some areas will not fully hydrate which is great as this provides wonderful texture with a bonus:  color variations with brown and black specks in the mix.  Gorgeous!

This product is fantastic and I hope you give it a try!
