hanging flowers (byVeronica)

 I hope you enjoyed watching Lesley and Lynnda on the recent TV shows , showing the lovely colouring pages and the matching stamps.
These are two of my samples using the hanging flowers stamp - loved this one, thought it was very like a fuschsia, I shall probably get corrected on that though, not being a gardener.
Needless to say, I used brushos on the first one. I stamped the flowers first using black versafine and clear embossing powder. then painted them with masking fluid before using grey brusho powder and spritzing with water.
Once everything was dry, I rubbed off the masking fluid and painted the leaves using lime green brusho. White and black mats finished it off.
The second version was stamped with versamark onto black card and embossed with gold detail powder. The flowers and leaves were painted with diluted  Aztec lustre paints - have to admit this was their first use since I bought them from CB last year!
Mats this time were gold and black onto a white base card.

There were some fantastic samples on the shows, so keep checking to see what my teamies have to show you, you won't be disappointed!


  1. Two very pretty cards using this lovely new stamp Veronica, and I love the grey brusho background and then the soft colour of the flowers, and the second more dramatic piece with the metallic shine of the lustre paints. x

  2. Lovely cards, and great background for these beautiful flowers!

  3. Absolutely stunning Veronica, I think they flower is a fuchsia too. Both are so beautifully coloured and designed, just love them both Kate x

  4. Absolutely beautiful, especially the first one as the white and green really stands out beautifully. Sandra x

  5. Stunning. Really great ideas. Love that it got you using something you hadn't played with yet.
