 Both my cards today use the captivating cacti individual stamp, which is quite a big stamp.
Sorry if you were hoping for a brusho-less card, but the first one is rather less obviously brusho!
I stamped and embossed the image onto white card before sprinkling red, green and orange brusho lightly over the background. I then painted the cacti with red and leaf green brusho using a wet paintbrush to activate the powders.
I stamped the tall cactus from scrumptious succulents across  the white card blank to give a background before adding a mat of black card
My second card is more obviously 'normal' brusho, with a background square of card coloured with red and yellow brusho. I used the same colours after stamping and embossing the image with white embossing powder, trying to get most of the red on the flowers and the yellow on the cacti.
The mat of black card was stamped using the sempervivium?  image from scrumptious succulents stamped randomly using a white ink pad, which doesn't really show up on the scan. I have a large collection of different makes of white ink pad, and am not really happy with any of them so far!


  1. Absolutely beautiful Verona, the colours are wonderful, Kate x x

  2. Two gorgeous cards Veronica and love the strength of the brushos and the bits of softer stamping in the two backgrounds, a great design idea complementing the main images beautifully. x

  3. Adorable cards and love the warm and sweet ones of the second one!!

  4. Lovely cards with these beautiful backgrounds Veronica! xx

  5. Love the 'hot' colours you've used, so very apt for cacti :)
