Brushos... and a whole lot of mess!

Hi! Here's my first card made using Brushos! I have lots of discarded bits of card and lots of mess from failed attempts, but I really like how this one turned out! Next time I'm going to clear emboss the image, as this time I stamped in dark grey and planned to have a subtle background but the paints just took over and went really rich and vibrant. I had too go over the stamp with my white Uni Posca pen, as you could hardly see the image! But anyway, here's my first Brushos card:

I've included a couple of close-ups to try to show the rich, vibrant colours - I should have waited until tomorrow to take photos in daylight! Anyway, if you haven't tried Brushos, they are extremely messy, but they are beautiful! I think I just need a fair bit of practice...

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Such a pretty background! Love the white flowers - I'm amazed you took the time to go over the lines with a white pen, but it was worth it!
