Brushless Fun! CC2C #7

Welcome to the 7th technique from Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.2, as assigned by Linda at Studio L3

This week we are on Page 49: Brushless Watercolor.  This is one of my faves, as I picked this up from a Tim video years ago. Of course this is a bit fresher, using the Distress Stains.  My stamp is one I just picked up at Absolutely Everything last weekend from Penny Black.  Sort of a new look from the bolder "Brush strokes" collections.  I sorta overwatered the center of the flower (well, underwatered first, then overwatered..duh!) but it still is pretty neat looking.  I was going to give a final spritz of perfect pearls, but thought too much would run, so abstained. 

As our challenges now start on Fridays, which give me the weekend to work on a piece, it only gives me a few days to bring in the image to upload at work, so you don't have too much time left to join in, but do try!  As an added bonus, Daisy has volunteered to be this week's sponsor, offering a gift certificate to eclectic Paperie (! How awesome is that! So go get brushless!


  1. love this technique. Not had the chance to play with this one yet, hope to get one done by tomorrow...getting close to Friday again...running out of productive hours, forget daylights hours, those are never enough.

  2. This is beautiful... you have really captured a perfect watercolour effect.

  3. Holy cats, Kim, I love this! It's so delicate and organic, and your brushless watercolor technique is awesome. The extra water in the center gave is a cool, dandelion fluff look-- perfect!!!

  4. To answer your question about the die...Yes you put the tape on the die and yes it cuts through, but because it is sticky it adheres to the die and stays on. For some reason this helps the paper not to stay stuck in the die.

  5. Gorgeous Gorgeous piece there Kim. Loving that stamp too, as Linda says "organic"! I seem to be in a flower mood at the moment so feel free....
    Have fun at the show! Not jealous at all!!
