Painting with Alcohol Wink of Stella

Oh no!  My Clear Wink of Stella glimmer brush went dry!

Thinking there had to be more life in this brush, I took it apart with a pair of pliers lifting out the center core.  I could see that there was still quite a bit of glitter left inside the core.

On Pinterest I had read that these brushes could be revived by adding water in the barrel, but I decided to add rubbing alcohol instead and reassembling the brush gave it a try. 

Wow!  I think it's better than it was before!

Now the fun began.  Grabbing some ink pads and an embossed image using the Floral Affection embossing folder, I began painting parts of the image.  It was easy, and the colours were brilliant.
The resultant image was made into an easel Easter card



The colours for this card were selected from the Affectionately Yours DSP- from the Crumb Cake basic Easel card to the Flirty Flamingo mat of the embossed art piece.

Embellishments in the form of flowers and ribbon also coordinated with the color scheme.  The flowers were made using the Petite Petal punch.  I made the centers by snipping a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, and rolling it up and then fluffing it after the adhesive was set.
Of course, Wink of Stella (clear) was applied to all parts of the flowers.

Stamp: Easter Message
Inks:  Black Memento, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Cucumber Crush
Papers: Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Affectionately Yours DSP, Cucumber Crush
