Brusho sky with wildflowersPosted: September 4, 2017 Filed under: Brusho, Wildflowers Vol 2 | Tags: Brusho, Darkroom Door stamps 6 Comments
Brusho skies and stazon flowers. I have had fun playing with brusho on photo paper and it is one of the techniques we’ll be using in my upcoming autumn leaves class.
I used warm colours for the panel above then stamped the flowers several times in a burgandy and a yellow ink before framing with co-ordinating cardstock.
My colour scheme for the second card is a bit more dramatic as I played with two primary colours and ended up with the secondary purple for a dramatic sky and black silhouetted flowers.
There are so many ways to colour backgrounds then turn them into cards with some simple foreground florals. If you are looking for a gorgeous way to create a background, check out Kathy Rac’s beautiful underwater background here and get inspired to join in her Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge.

These are both fabulous Heather and I love the yellow, red and orange on the first and then the more dramatic red, blue and purple on the second and the DD silhouette flowers work really well. x
I love both of your cards today… so much I don’t know which I would choose, both are wonderful!
Love these cards!
