Faux Brush Lettering

Hello Friends...
Welcome to Inspired by Stamping inspiration post…
Hope you all are  doing well...
Today I am sharing a technique called Faux Brush Lettering with the help of Just For You stamp set from our newest release.

Start by choosing a sentiment that has brush lettering font.
I used the Just For You stamp because it has big & bold sentiment perfect for trying out this new (for me) technique...
I decided to use blues & greens for my sentiment so I stamped the sentiment with Tumbled Glass Distress ink on a piece of watercolor cardstock. You can use any light shade of ink you have which matches the final colors that you want to use. I feel distress inks are best for this technique because of their water reactive property.

Next take a brush & start painting over the stamped sentiment. Keep the start of the stroke dark and let the ink fade towards the end of the stroke. I have used 2 colors to add a little more interest as I planned on keeping the card simple.
To assemble the card I trimmed the sentiment panel & mounted it on slightly larger black cardstock before gluing it down to the card base. 
I took the Here's a hug from the same stamp set & heat embossed it on black cardstock with white embossing powder. Cut it into a banner & adhered it on the card.

Finally I added 2 tiny hearts made with Nuvo Crystal Drops (Green Apple).

I hope you like my card & give this fun technique a try...
Thank you so much for visiting today...
