Brusho Poppies

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new follower :o)


For today's card I've used the Poppy Paint Fusion stamps by Sheena Douglass.

I stamped the leaf and flowers onto Sheena's stamping card with Black Archival ink then again onto post-it notes and cut them out to make masks. After covering the stamped images with the masks I stamped the stems in place.

To colour them in I painted inside the lines with diluted Brusho powders and then dropped a few Brusho crystals in while it was still wet and moved the colour around a little with a damp brush.

The greeting is from another Crafters Companion floral stamp set.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Retro Rubber Challenge  #97 tic tac toe  (masking, birthday, flowers) - stamps from 2012
Alphabet Challenge N is for Nature
SSS Work it wednesday favourite stamping technique & celebration/birthday 

Thanks for stopping by,

Stunning card Katrina. Love the effect that dropping the extra crystals in when wet has given the poppies. Nicola x

Your poppies are spectacular and the brusho gives such vibrant colour. I like the clean, strong look of your card. It's one anyone would love to have. Thank you for playing with my tic-tac-toe challenge at Retro Rubber.
