 Hello friends!

Would you like to add details to those tiny spaces? Well, now you can.

I am popping in to share some pertinent info about Detailed Blending Brushes from yesterday's release. 


I am using Floating Foliage 3D Embossing Folder for this post's examples.

The three brushes are in 3 different sizes. The brushes are dense and ergonomic. Altenew-Detailed Blending Brushes-Altenew-Floating Foliage 3D Embossing Folder (2)

 What I love the most about these brushes are that they are angled. That means, you can turn and adjust the brushes to really add tiniest details.

 You can see that I used the largest one for the quick coloring. I then added more yellow and orange to the leaves with the small-med brushes.

To avoid getting the inks onto the unwanted area, I angled the tips and was able to leave the white space white! You can also use a piece of scrap paper around the area to avoid smudges. I was able to ink up the tiny flowers in Baroque Frame 3D Embossing Folder.

The only drawback of the set of 3 detailed brushes? The price. It is not cheap as each brush comes to $4 each. Thankfully, you do not need many as they can be used interchangeable. In between each use, I only wiped it on wet paper towel and was able to continue to use on next color.

With the layering stencils being so popular, thee brushes can not come in better timing.

Thank you for stopping by!

These really look like they will be worth the cost Virginia. Especially with the layering stencils. Love all your ideas - love the leaves one in particular.
