I can’t believe how beautiful and vibrant the ink of the Nuvo Brish Scrip Pens looks on coloured cardstock. The pens were amazing to colour the images of More Spring Flowers Stamp Set by Simon Says… a very easy, quick and pleasant watercolor experience.
I didn’t even apply the pen’s ink evenly as I was rushing out and experimenting . The true about this card is that I wanted to see how the floral images of the stamp set will show up on light coloured cardstock . I liked the results so that I decided to go ahead and finished the card to share it with you.
This is a C6 ( A6) card . I started by applying a embossing resist technique: stamping the images withClear Versamark ink, and then applying a fine white embossing powder. I heated emboss with a heat gun and I applied colours.
Shhh don’t tell anybody !! but it took less than 2 minutes to colour the images… I only applied a layer of colour in circular motions over the whole image while the embossing powder was resisted the inks. you can go over the images as many times as you want to add shadows and more dept.
I stamp a sentiment from Hero Arts Little One Stamp Set and I made a very simple matching envelope by mixing the images of Sending Flowers Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp and the stamp I used to make the card ( More Spring Flowers).
I also grabbed my sewing machine to add some stitches at one side of the front panel and I glued some sequins by Lucy’s Little Things.
Other thoughts about Nuvo Brush Script pens:
- This pens offer great blendability options. You will find pens with light and a darker shade of the same ink tone in the collection: e.g. a lilac and a dark purple so that you can easily add contrast and shadows using same ink colours.
- You can always blend the inks of different pens to get new colours e.g: blue +yellow to get green. etc.
- You can always play and overlay colours (not need to blend them completely) just allow the ink to dry and then apply contrasting colour on top.
- The pen tip absolutely fantastic to apply colour to very small images and easy to blend on larger image so you won’t see the seams or marks where you have applied the pens.
- The pen’s ink didn’t bleed to unwanted areas during application.
- This is a water based product so you can mix it with water to apply different techniques, the inks blend nicely and dry fast.
- You can apply the pen inks directly on stamps and stamp with them or apply it on a clear block to splatter a background with a water brush.
- Nice pens for hand lettering and general drawing .
That’s all! I hope you enjoy the projects today and to know a bit of new colouring tools.
