Brushos Chocolate Baroque Stamp from Wisteria Lane Set

Wisteria Lane Stamp

The stamps in this set are beauties and in some way seem "delicate" to me. I created my Brusho Background and stamped the image with Versafine. Hi lighted the flower with white Rangers enamel and coloured the little butterfly ( part of the set ) with Spectrum Noir pencils.
here's the link for the stamp .......
thank for looking.......

Chocolate Baroque + Brushos

Chocolate Baroque Stamp
from  the Briar Rose Set
I'm getting used to my Brushos now and have learnt that much, much less is more!! I  like to use 3 colours and this time used lemon, purple and leaf green. Lightly misted straight to card sprinkle chosen Brushos and then misted lightly again. I like to blot off any areas I want to lighten, with a kitchen towel. Stamped Chocolate baroque image and used Spectrum Noir pencils to colour. Not sure of origin of the sentiment stamp. Matt and layering to finish.

Card number Two from Chocolate Baroque - Christmas Creatures

This card is the opposite technique to the card I posted yesterday - an Out of the Circle card. For me not so confusing in the cutting department as an "innie" !!. I coloured with Distress Inks and then Distressed the edges. A white pen to highlight the Owls eyes and then I placed Glossy Accents or similar to the eyes, bauble and mistletoe berries. A dotty background which I randomly embossed to give a snowfall effect....

Christmas Poinsettia - a Sue Wilson Die

Craft Dies by Sue Wilson Poinsettia

A fairly quick card today using Creative Expression Poinsettia and  Holly.
Die cut for 3 flowers and 2 holly stems. Added some Liquid Pearls in the flower centre and berries. Before mounting I used the Hougie Board to create a decorative border and a Spellbinders circle die -  embossed only for the centre detail.

Brusho Butterfly

Brushos and a Butterfly Stamp
The same stamp as before but the time I placed a lightly misted stamp with brushos and then painted in the flower area after to make the flowers "ping". Brushos are so versatile to work with......simple matt and layering to finish

Brushos available from many sources,

Rubbernecker Stamps


Wildflowers Rubbernecker Stamp..... 

A Rubbernecker stamp for my card today.
It is a corner composition but decided to see what happened if I extended it and voila it worked quite well! I used
Oak House Studio ink pads and then very lightly misted the stamp before putting to the paper. Then when dry I misted some Oak House Studio Metallic Silver Ink in a Bottle. The mica shows up well in the photo I think.....

Butterfly with Brusho Paints

Brusho Paints
Gave this technique a go after seeing a card which Eileen had posted
large clear images are good for this technique - I think this stamp was a little busy....but it is OK
Mist the stamp lightly, very gently sprinkle your Brusho Crystal Paints on randomly then very lightly mist again. The trick is to get all your paints damp without dripping or your image will not be crisp.....why not give it a go?
