a floral bouquet (by Veronica)

 Today I have several floral cards to share, made for the show on Hochanda last month -  and one card doesn't have brusho on it!
The first uses the lovely flora musica stamp, stamped with versamark on white card and white embossed before adding brusho powders. The dark brown card background was randomly stamped with the rose part of the image and gold embossed,. and the mats are dark brown and gold.
 The second uses the crackling rose stamp, stamped in black versafine ink and clear embossed, rose covered with masking fluid and then sprinkled with black brusho powder. Once dry, die cut using an oval die and mounted onto a white card blank stamped with the gold embossed sentiment from loving sentiments.
I think this would be a suitable card for a lot of times, when you just need a general cheer-up card....
Crackling rose again for this one with masking fluid and brusho, this time torn round the edges befor sticking onto a dark blue background embossed with the crackle stamp and white embossed.
the greeting from loving sentiments was stamped and embossed with gold, die cut and edhes with more gold EP.
 The final brusho one is again crackling rose, stmaped in black and clear embossed before colouring with brusho powders. It was fussy cut out and mounted onto a background using distress oxide inks, with the sentiment in black.
My final card features the floribunda net stamp, and as promised has no brusho!
I stamped with versamark onto craft card, and white embossed it, tore round the edges  and coloured the roses with marker pen, mounted onto black and gold card at an angle onto a base card randomly stamped in wild honey distress ink, with a gold embossed sentiment.
The roses were made from a Tim Holtz die using the same dull gold card used for the mat, with a darker gold for the leaves.


  1. Fabulous array of cards, love especially the first one!

  2. Wow Veronica I adore all of these. I love the white embossing with the brushos and also the masking fluid to keep the flowers white whilst making a lovely background with the brushos, and then painting with them works well and a great oxide background. Then finally white on to craft card which gives wonderful contrast, and there are some really pretty embossed and inked backgrounds on several of the cards showing what you can do with just one stamp. x

  3. Lovely cards. I do like the black brushos background on the second one.Great collection.

  4. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh what gorgeous cards, all so beautifully designed and coloured, brilliant inspiration, Kate x
