in all things of nature (by Veronica)


Good morning everyone, today I have the first of my samples using this lovely spiky flower, and, of course, my favourite brusho powders - very appropriate weather for cacti and succulent stamps, if not for todays show featuring Christmas stamps!
The spiky flower is from the blossom and grow plate, and the sentiment from scrumptious succulents.
A very quick card if you ignore the drying time - both images were stamped with versamark ink and white embossed. A good sprinkling of black brusho powder and a fairly heavy spritzing with water was all that was needed.
Once it was dry, trimmed to size and a mat of bronze/red  card to pick up the colours in the brusho, them mounted on a 7" square white card blank.



Another version, different colours, this time stamped using black versafine and clear embossed with green and orange powders.  An accidental more watery effect, not really cacti-like, but I liked it - think I will try to get the same effect with the mermaid queen stamp.....

  6. I love these Brusho backgrounds Veronica and love the white embossed image over the top of the black Brusho which has all those other pretty colours within it, and then the beautiful green and orange and then the image in black which is another fabulous look. x
