More Flowers

Mid month is here for our challenge at Stamping Sensations on the theme of 'Anything With Flowers'.

My turn to offer another card using a technique which I have only just perfected.
(After finding out I had been doing things incorrectly and abandoning the Brushos I now am having fun using them!)
So here is what I hope will inspire you to join in this month (if you haven't done so already!)

I liberally wet the watercolour card then sprinkled on the Brushos (Orange and Lemon).
I was really happy when it turned out like this!

Script stamp over the background then the flowers from the SU Helping Me Grow set.
I coloured the flowers with the Brushos too - Another first for me!

I hope you like my card.
Please pop over to the Stamping Sensations blog and check out the fab prize we have this month from Bee Crafty.
My teamies have posted some great cards too!

I am also sharing this make over at

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope all is well with you in your part of Blogland. x

Absolutely gorgeous background!! Love the colors and the text behind those pretty flowers! Perfect!

Going to ask a stupid question but when you say you painted the flowers with the brushos how did you do it? The background is mighty pleasing and how you have then layered up with the flower on top is a lovely effect. This doesn't sound too messy the way you have done the background so I might just get my brushos out plus the old dust sheets and have a play. hugs Mrs A.

Well you've certainly figured out how to use Brushos, Viv!! This is BEAUTIFUL. Love the colourful background layered with the script and then flower images. I have not watercoloured with Brushos yet, but need to give that a try ... your flowers are gorgeous!! xx
