eBrushed Coasters

Hello All! Today I would like to show you how simple it is to make designer coasters using Craftwell USA's eBrush. 
Supplies you will need today include:
Blank Coasters
Spectrum Noir Markers
Sticky Notes
Stencil
Modpodge
second project:
same supplies except,  
stencil
acetate 
metal tape for embellishing


I placed my stencil down and secured it to my coaster with post it notes. I lifted of each piece separately and eBrushed them with FS1, DG1 Spectrum Noir Markers. After my pieces where all sprayed I kept the skeleton of the stencil and decided to glue it down to my colored image using Modpodge.
Here is my end result! I will cover the entire coaster with glossy modpodge a few moretimes to adhere the paper stencil.

I hope you enjoyed today's showing of some simple things you can do to personalize things around the house or just give a personal touch to a small gift.

Here are some other coasters made in the same fashion with stencils, a little metal tape and acetate transparencies. My daughter is a cook and I think she will love them on her kitchen wall.



Have a great day!

Easter Fun!


 Happy Monday!!  Peggy here to show you how I made this cute little bunny/chocolate tin for Easter with Polymer Clay and my eBrush.

Supplies used today are:

  • Ebrush by Craftwell USA
  • Spectrum Noir Markers
  • White Polymer Clay
  • Background Stamp
  • Swarovski Crystals
  • Chocolate Goodies
  • Tin Can
  • Designer Paper

I started with my clay and manipulated my clay to a flat surface to make an imprint from my background stamp. I wanted the dress to have texture. I added flowers, straps and buttons from clay.

I began to eBrush my pieces before they went into the oven. I found I got a more even coverage when spraying onto unbaked clay.  After hardening in the oven the colors faded to a nice salmon/pink shade.

I sprayed the dress in the same color Spectrum Noir marker FS8 but held my Ebrush farther away for a lighter coating.  I carefully put the bunny back together and then time for the oven and baked as directed on the package. (15mins)
Next I made three eggs from the clay and stamped with a Ukrainian design all around and eBrushed with same Spectrum Noir marker. I have about three different tones or shades of the same color with just one marker.
I wrapped designer paper around my tin and filled it with yummy chocolate.  I made my own stuffing out of cardstock by cutting it into little strips.  I used Swarovski Crystals for her eyes. 

 I tied a bow around the tin and wrote a note on the tag from the easter bunny of course.

I hope you have enjoyed todays tutorial as much as I had fun playing! My Easter Bunny surprise will surely be loved..

Be sure to check out Craftwell USA and get your eBrush and you could be spraying your way into fun crafts and artsy adventures.

Mixed Media Cards Layering with Ebrush

Hello Crafty Folk! Welcome to my mixed media cards.  With just a few simple tools I was able to create these vibrantly colored cards in minutes. 

Supplies used today are:
Spectrum Noir Markers
Glossy Cardstock 
Black Cardstock 
Stencils
Stamps 
Memento Ink

I started with a background stamping onto glossy cardstock cut to fit card bases made from cardstock.  Then I Ebrushed layers of color lightly for transparency. 
Next I was ready for some stenciling with Spectrum Noir Markers.
 This process was so effortless and I am fully enjoying my results. I had to make more!
Using the same process and stencils with my Ebrush!
 I made sure when stamping I used a Dye Ink so the colors from the alcohol based spectrum noir markers did not mix. My stamps stayed without smudging. 
 The glossy cardstock used makes the airbrushed colors look so vibrant. 

I hope you have enjoyed my short tutorial. 

Quick Tip:
If you like splattering ink as much as I do try holding your Ebrush in one hand and your Spectrum Noir markers in the other and blow the air nozzle directly over your marker tip and not too close you should be able to create some not so predictable yummy marks!
Thanks for looking !!

Just Because I Love You



Hello! Peggy here to show you how I used my eBrush and Pink & Main Stamps to create a children's card.
Todays supplies used are:

 I started by creating a background with my eBrush and Spectrum Noir Markers BT7, BT9 and BT5 on regular cardstock (White). With the lighter of the colors at the bottom and darker color as I went up. 
 I used the stars in my background from this set from Pink & Main. 
 I stamped the images I wanted to color in Memento Black Ink so when I colored them with alcohol markers the black would not bleed.  I stamped more than one image so I could also use the extra images as a mask. I placed the masks on top of the image and used my eBrush to color the large areas and I colored the rest by hand using BP6 , GB5, PL5 and TB8 Spectrum Noir Markers. The bottom of the spaceship is colored with BT9 and layered on top of the original image.

 For the moon and stars I used Stazon Inks on my background.  After my images were colored I created a sentiment from the same stamp set, which happens to be my daughters favorite saying when she goes to bed. I kept the spellbinders die attached while I sprayed GB5 SN creating a boarder around the sentiment.
 I decided after stamping the moon in Black I would use Stazon white on top of the moon. Below are my images all colored and ready to be assembled. I used a complimentary color of yellow for the card base.
Here it is all assembled. I used double sided tape to attach the background and foam dimensional tape to raise the sentiment . I placed a small ribbon on the sentimen. Lastly I used stickles in the stars and liquid pearls on the spaceship. 


I hope you enjoyed my tutorial as much as my daughter is going to enjoy her card.
I love my eBrush by Craftwell USA it is just too much fun not to share!!
Have a great day, 
Warmly, Peggy

Cardstock, white and patterned hearts
Ribbon
Embellishments : Rain Dots Letters, Gold heart (starform), 
Cut Elements (Birds and Large Heart)

I gathered some materials to use on my card. I decided to start with my large heart. 
I eBrushed my heart with Spectrum Noir Markers DR3 and LV2 . I used an octagon stencil on top of my heart. 
  

Next I prepared some letters that started out clear. I colored them with my eBrush using PL4 Spectrum Noir Markers.

 Then I colored my birds using my eBrush and DR3 Spectrum Noir Marker. I masked bottom portion of the cut element with post it notes.
 Below I masked off the birds and used my eBrush and the same marker and my octagon stencil .
I prepared my card base with white cardstock and embossed with a script folder.
before I assembled my card I used my eBrush to color my very peach ribbon pink to match my card
All parts put together below. 
I hope you have enjoyed my card tutorial. I encourage you to try the eBrush by Craftwell

Warmly,
