Vibrant Florals

Hi everyone,

Today I would like to share my latest set of ATC's which involve sparkling white die cut flowers and a vibrant brusho background - I'm still very new to brushos, but I absolutely love the intense colour effects that are possible. I have called this set "Vibrant Florals".

I cut a panel of white stamping card and made a splashy background with brushos spritzed with water. When dry I cut into 4 pieces each slightly smaller than standard ATC size, overstamped with grungy text, then die cut my flowers from various snippets of white pearlescent card and attached. I also attached a few co-ordinating sparkly gems, and small snippets of sequin waste (punchinella) that was kindly gifted to me by one of my ATC swap partners - Sonya in USA. I spattered each panel with silver Posca pen, edged with dark blue marker pen and matted onto standard ATC sized white pearlescent card. I finished off with a Tim Holtz sticker sentiment on each panel.

Here's a closer look at each ATC.


Stamps: grungy text - Woodware Additions;
Media: Brushos (Ultramarine, Purple); Versafine Clair (Medieval Blue); Posca pen (silver);
Tools: Memory Box dies - Fresh Daisies, Bella Bouquet, Prim Poppies, Meadow Rue;
Other: Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers; gems and punchinella from my stash.

Each one of these is absolutely stunning! Great work with the brushos, which reminds me I need to get mine out again to play! I've only used them a few times and they are so much fun!
