Brusho Flowers


Hi there!  My card today was inspired by Anita's card over at Muse.  Like Anita I used Brushos to create my background.  Brushos, where have you been all my life??  This stuff is awesome and so fun and easy to use!  The patterns you end up with are so cool.  I'm loving it!  Anyway I created a coloured panel and then die cut a Simon Says flower die from it.  The die cut flower was too pretty to waste so I made a second card with it.  I'm also going to enter this card in the CAS on Sunday Flowers challenge and the Addicted to CAS Inlaid Dies challenge.

  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Watercolor) Ranger, (Midnight Muse) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from All Squared Up) Avery Elle
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Fresh Daisies) Simon Says Stamp
Gems:  Recollections
Other:  (Brushos)Colourcraft

OH, the brusho lack of control.... I just can't do it yet lol. I LOVE the look of the brushos and your card panel is so fun, maybe I need to try, all those fab bright colours!

Jen, I've never heard of brushes, but based on your cards I think I need to investigate them a bit! These are BOTH awesome...perfectly inlaid and amazing colors! Wow!

I'm with you, watercolour powders are my new favourite thing! (Mine aren't actual Brushos, so I'm being generic...) Both cards are fabulous! Great way to use a fun and bright panel.

Such a fabulous background you created with those Brushos! And your second card is so pretty, too - would have been a shame to trow away those pretty flowers!

I've been pretending I don't need tp try Brushos, but when I see the vibrant colors on your card it is getting harder and harder to resist. Both cards are stunners, Jen!

If you all keep showing such fabulous cards made with Brushos I might just have to jump on the band wagon, Jen. And a twofer is always a good thing. ;)

Both designs have something so special! Love the bright bold color effect of the Brushos! You make me want some!

Wonderful interpretation of Anita's muse card; I can totally see the inspiration and how you made it your own. Good job using the die cut too - two cards, so clever!

Oh, loving both versions of this Jen. The vibrancy of your brusho background is delicious!
