In the Pink by Brenda

Morning Peeps, some more cards today from last months Hochanda shows. And first up is one using Life is Wonderful, well part of it that is as I masked the image so I was left with just the flowers.

The background is oxides applied with acetate as I wanted a softer finish, random stamping using worker stamps from Gerbera and Friends and sentiment from Dream Petals. I coloured the flowers with Distress Markers, stamped the seed head from the Gerbra set three times, cut out and placed down the side with paper clips. A torn strip from an old book, some doodling around the edges and the little Dragonfly from the same set as the focal element.

Inks, texture paste, stencilling, gilding wax and anything else I could lay my hands on to build up around the arch door from Echoes of Italy which I heat embossed with details copper EP. Finally some Little Birdie flowers. The sentiment is from Artistic Affirmations.

A focal circle created with the Gelli Plate, acrylic paints and Brushos, the seed heads from Gerbera and Friends stamped with Versafine Clair and sentiment from Canary Bird Rose.

Happy weekend everyone.


  1. Gorgeous cards Brenda and love the pretty pink tones you have used for the wonderful flowers and with the great collage effect with the book paper, doodled edges and also the added seed heads added with the paper clips..a different look, and the arched doorway with the texture paste and gold gilding wax added to it, and some very pretty flowers, and lastly the masked circle around the seed heads is beautiful. Your designs are brilliant! x

  2. Three very artistic cards Brenda! I admire your eye for bit and pieces as the paperclips added on the petals in the first card, I have never thought to it. Amazing colours and backgrounds for the beautiful new and old stamps!!
