brusho postbox by Veronica

 Good morning, even if it is cold and rainy here!

I have the threatened card using brusho powders and the new Christmas Post stamp.
A very simple card,stamped with black Versafine onto white card, and painted with brushos. The tree was stamped a second time onto a scrap of card, coloured and cut out, then decoupaged onto the original image. The baubles were dotted with glossy accents, and glitter added along the top of the wall and to the bare branches of the tree.
Matts are black and gold mirri, and the base card is 5"x7" white.








For the second card I went for a night-time effect, and a non-Christmas feel. The stamp  may be called Christmas tree tangle, but it is not an obviously Christmas image and could be used all year.
Stamped in black versafine again, and painted with brushos, using just grey and leaf green, with the moon masked off. Matts are black and silver mirri card, and the base card is A5 green.

Thanks for looking, there are some gorgeous samples coming up from the rest of the team

  2. Two beautiful Brusho cards Veronica, the first is a more structured watercolour and I love the glossy accents on the tree, and the second is loose and watery and suits the contemporary trees. x
