I "painted" green colors with Brusho powders. Brusho powders are water-soluble paints in powder form. One technique that can be used with them is simply shake and spray. Make some holes on top of the Brusho jar and shake some powder on cardboard (or paper), like salt on food. The cardboard is sprayed before or after with water to spread the colors beautifully. Excessive water can be taken carefully away.
From this cardboard I cut four little triangles of different sizes. One edge of the triangle I cut with pattern scissors. They are folded a little bit to give a three-dimensional look.
The color solution I made by adding a small amount of Brusho powder and water to a small spray bottle. Light shaking and it's ready. I was hoping that this way I wouldn't need to buy mists - or at least not so many. :D
The star and tree trunk are made from recycled materials. I cut the star with my Big Shot from corrugated cardboard, which I painted with Inka Gold wax. The tree stem is natural bark, which I collected in the summer from the forest.
As I mentioned earlier, the card works perfectly with or without the mixed media background. Actually without the extra stuff in the background the tree is more clear. But I like paint and color everything everywhere, so my simple card ends up not being a simple card anymore. That's why I now have two versions. :)
