Bubble over on Springtime Foils

One more time with the FREE (with $50 purchase) 
Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (SAB2 on page 3)!  I just had to
feature this DSP, by sponging it with Berry Burst ink.

I added the image and sentiment from Bubble Over
(Occasions p 32) to complete the bubbly look!

Springtime Foils Specialty with Brusho and Polished Stone

As promised, here is another project that uses the 
FREE (with $50 purchase) Springtime Foils Specialty DSP
(SAB2 on page 3).  This project uses Brusho Crystal Colour,
which is then blended with rubbing alcohol, a.k.a Polished Stone.
The Brusho colour does not move or blend as much as regular
ink, but it did lighten when wiped with rubbing alcohol.
I did use a heat tool to move and dry the Brusho,
before rubbing with the alcohol.

The Copper foil sentiment comes from the Celebrate You
Thinlits Dies (SAB p 17).  I also used the "burst" from
the coordinating set.

Polished Stone Springtime Foils Specialty DSP

SAB is almost over, so I will likely feature these products
for the next several posts.  In fact, the rest of my cards 
might all include the FREE (with $50 purchase) 
Springtime Foils Specialty DSP
(SAB2 on page 3).  I love this stuff!!

In this example, my plan was to use the Polished Stone
technique.  I took ink pads and dragged both Peekaboo Peach
and Flirty Flamingo across the DSP.  I used these two
In Colors (annual p 184), because they will retire in May.
Then I took a cotton ball, lightly soaked with rubbing
alcohol, and created "splotches".  The rubbing alcohol
removes or moves the ink, creating lightened spots.
This technique worked REALLY WELL on the glossy surface of
the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.  Happily, it looks
like spring/Easter time.

The Silver foil sentiment comes from the Celebrate You
Thinlits Dies (SAB p 17).   I could have dressed this up
more, by adding additional accessories, but opted to 
leave it "plain".
