Messy Play

Had a nice messy play this afternoon, started off with a piece of brusho card and used some old Elusive Image stamps  (seem to be on a using old stamps theme at the moment) Coloured the poppy heads with brusho, stamped the butterflies on another piece of brusho card and cut them out.  Decided I needed a bit of background card and thats when it gets hard ! can never get the same results twice with Brushos, ended up with a stencil and new distress inks to blend it in. Entering it a couple of challenges

  1. Lush card Joan, I'm always partial to harlequins so together with all inkiness love your piece of artwork. But you are right it's impossible to recreate a Brusho piece.

  2. Fabulous inking Joan! Love the design and the bold colours. You deserve a medal for your Brusho skills - I've had my Brusho set for 2 weeks, tried them out twice, and decided I need to look on YouTube for some instructions!

  3. Gorgeous card Joan and I know what you mean about using old stamps, I seem to doing the same. I've seen lots of cards recently using Brushos although I don't have any myself and you've done a wonderful job with them. I love the colours that you've used x

  4. Absolutely gorgeous inkyness, Joan! LOVE it!

  5. Gorgeous inky backgrounds. I love the effects of the Brusho' s, makes them so individual. Fabulous details as well.
