Finally had time to make a card this week. Sometimes life just get so busy and I miss out on my crafting time!
Today, I am being inspired by the Challenge at Splitcoast from the Shabby Creek CottageBlog. Fun ideas and here is the photo that inspired my card:
I began by creating the background using Brusho. Many of you know about Brusho and the wonderful colours you can achieve from just spraying with water.
(Many examples of using Brusho on my previous blog posts)
When the bkg. was dry, I used my Misti and Memento ink to stamp the sentiment which is one of my newest purchases from STAMPlorations. LOVE, love the Misti for repeated, dark stamping over a painted surface. The flowers from Hero Arts, were stamped with the Misti again then watercoloured using more Brusho, water and a paint brush.
To add extra interest and depth to the painted surface I stamped the script from Penny Black along the side. I just filled in some of the empty areas perfectly.
Adding my card to these challenges:
