Patterned Flower

Hi! Here's a card I made, inspired by the colours from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. The flower is from my new stamp set, which I can't put down, I love it so much! I stamped and embossed in clear, on watercolour paper, then added colour with inks and a water brush. I tried to add some pink at the bottom of the card, to suggest tiny flowers, but over the green it just went muddy :-s But I love the flower, and the bright pink :)

Grungey Flowers

Hi! Here's a card I made using some more stamps from my new stamp set, which I'm a bit obsessed with now. It's a bit splodgier than I intended - think I went overboard with the Brushos (as always) - but I still like it. The embossing powder is white with lots of fine gold glitter, but I'm not sure it shows up that well in the photos.

The colours are inspired by the current Color Throwdown challenge.

Embossed Flowers

Hi! A new stamp set arrived a couple of weeks ago, and this is the first time I've had chance to use it. I absolutely love these scribbly flowers! I embossed onto watercolour paper, then coloured with inks. I backed the panel onto a square piece of card and stamped the sentiment underneath. I painted a scrap piece of watercolour paper and punched a couple of butterflies (I need to use a better phrase than that... no butterflies were harmed in the making of this card). I added details with a white gel pen, so they matched the flowers.

Obsession with Butterflies

Hi! Here's yet another butterfly card. This one was embossed with fine clear embossing powder, then painted with inks. The embossing has a glossy sheen to it, but it's hard to see in the photo. The colours were inspired by the current  MFT challenge.

Muted Brushos Butterfly

Hi! Here's a second version of the butterfly card. This time I used a lot more water to get a more muted, blended effect. I also used clear fine embossing powder to get a crisper image.
