I was delighted to be asked to join the team by Lesley, to put it mildly! I have loved the stamps for many years from back in the olden days of wood mounts – and yes, I am that ancient (though I prefer the recycled teenager label!).
My first set of stamps are the flowerheads, BIG stamps already cling mounted and ready to use, they make very quick cards on their own.
I decided to use my Brusho powders for the background, and my first card uses the Swirl Centre Flowerhead, stamped with Versamark and clear embossed onto watercolour card. After spraying with water Brusho powders in lemon and orange were sprinkled round the flower, sprayed again with water and then brushed out with a paintbrush to fill the flowerhead. Cut down to fit a 6” square black card blank, the sentiment from LovingSentiments was stamped in black Memento, mat layers are black and dull gold.
For the second card I used the same Brusho colours, but this time the Circle Centre Flowerhead, embossed with white EP this time, to make the flower stand out a little more from the background. I also added some brown powder to the flower centre this time, which made for a more vibrant colour as it spread out onto the petals. I used a cream 7” square card blank, with an orange mat layer. The sentiment from Words of Comfort and Cheer was again stamped in black Memento.
I am really enjoying playing with these stamps and the Brusho powders. Thanks for dropping in and please pop in again to see some more great designs from my fellow team members.
