paint your dreams

Today I have two cards to share using my favourite brusho powders and stamps from echoes of Italy. I created a few background sheets using the brusho powders, and chose two that looked atmospheric to stamp the villas onto using black versafine ink and clear embossing powder

 I thought the first one looked like a sunset, so coloured the trees using watercolour pencils and then bleached out the moon and highlights on the building using bleach. A black mat and the sentiment from the dream petals set to finish.

The second background reminded me of fields of lavender, so i stamped the villa on what passes for a horizon - I didn't quite manage to line the stamp up with the white area for a path to the villa though....more bleach to whiten the buildings and edges rubbed on a black inkpad to finish


  1. A beautiful card and what a stunning background Veronica, I love it! x

  2. Both are so very beautiful, love the colours.

  3. You use Brushos so beautifully for backgrounds Veronica and I love the two moonlit scenes with the striking white from the moon reflected on the side of the building, and then the white colourd house standing out perfectly on the second. x

  4. Two fabulous scenic landscapes that are just of my own Italy :) so I love them even much more!! Amazing colours!
