Daisies ?

We have an anything goes challenge at Stamping Sensations this month so |I've gone with my favourites  of making a messy background to stamp on.  This is my second go at making this card, first one I started with a brusho background and started to paint with brusho paint but it bled all over the place ! I have never had that happen before and can only think it was because I had used water colour card whereas I normaly just use my ordinary stamping card. This background is a mix of dylusions with a lot of water added to dilute the colour and a homemade ink spray. The stamp is Stampendous Daisy Thanks,bees from two different sets and the greeting is a magazine freebie

  1. It's always a bit hit and miss how different card reacts isn't it Joan, been caught out the same many a time.

    I do like the intensity of colour and the graduation of Brushos compliments the image so well.

    Hope you have a good Sunday.

  2. Joan, guten Tag, ich wünsche dir einen schönen, sonnigen Sonntag.
    Die Karte ist toll geworden, sieht super aus mit dem Hintergrund.
    Ich kenne das Problem gut, man will einen bestimmten Hintergrund, und dann wird er ganz anders...
    Aber dein Hintergrund ist wirklich gut gelungen.
    Und die rote Blume sieht bezaubernd aus.

    Liebe Grüße

  3. A lovely card Joan, love the background, gorgeous colours. I bought the Brusho thickener to put in the water when painting, it does seam to help.
