Brusho Bird (posted by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have an Oriental themed card to show you today using my favourite colours and some wisteria stamps taken from the Serenity and Wisteria Lane stamp sets.

I created my card by stamping and embossing the bird and bird cage from the A Little Bird Told Me stamp set using white embossing powder. I dropped Brusho crystals over the background, choosing green and turquoise for the bird, and violet and lime green for the background. I spritzed my card with water, and blotted it with kitchen towel, to lighten the colours, and mop up the excess water.

I stamped the wisteria images using water based markers around the edges of the card. I added some detail to the bird and birdcage using markers. Finally, I matted the background onto a white card base.

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  10. This is so lovely Judith, I love the lilacs with the turquoise tones, restful, yet vibrant as well, a really lovely combination and such a nice soft use of the Brushos too. The white embossing works perfectly and the choice of the wisteria stamp is ideal and fits so well in your composition. Elaine xxx

  12. This is gorgeous Judith, I keep looking at the box of Brushos and putting them away again, thinking that I will probably just make a proper mess. Maybe one day soon I'll build up courage to use them. x
