Peace with Stipple Brush

After masking the edges of the card base with washi tape, I used a stipple brush to apply a very pale blue to the bottom of the card. Rather than pouncing the stipple brush, I brushed it firmly from the bottom of the card to the top. LOVE how soft and pretty this is!!!

Washi Tip: Always pat the tape on your jeans before putting it on the paper to take some of the sticky off, and then pull the tape off the paper toward the edge to prevent tearing the paper.

Here are some pictures of how the washi was adhered so precisely. Of course, I used a ruler!

And make sure you label the bottom of the card on your scrap sheet. I could see me going in the wrong direction, although that would have worked on this card's design given the simplicity...just flip the snowflake and sentiment. I liked the idea of peace falling DOWN from heaven, though, and blanketing the world.

  1. Beautiful!! Maybe I should unearth all those old stipple brushes.

  2. Love this! I just uncovered a set of three stipple brushes the other day during a mini reorganizing spell. Will be casing this card!

  3. Beautifully simple. Love it. I was wondering if you could use painters tape for this. Washi seems kind of pricey. Although it would be a good way to use up a pattern or color that you aren't particularly thrilled about.

  4. So beautiful! I love this effect! TFS!
