Brosho's with a few Pan Pastels thrown in for good measure



Time for our monthly challenges at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More where our themes at both are 'Anything Goes'.........that wasn't actually planned, it's just how it seems to have turned out !

For my Penny Black card it is my all time favourite inspirational quote 2696J Dance, Sing, Love along with Penny Black 2636K Scroll background around the edges, both are pretty old wood mounted stamps. I started with a Brusho background using Leaf Green, Violet and Cobalt Blue which gives out lovely hues of purple as the water shifts the powder and I also used the latter two to colour the flowers which I made using a Heartfelt die and stamp. Some grunge paste harlequins, a couple of die cut swirls cut on the cricut, seam binding and pearls to embellish.


The first of my Stamping Sensations pieces used Silhouette Elephants from our sponsor Little Claire in the foreground and in the background I repeat stamped a really old Judikins cube with the trees and Zebra, the word Serengeti is also part of the same cube. All colouring is Pan Pastels and of course a masked sun on the horizon.


Another Brusho background for my second Stamping Sensation piece, this time I used masking fluid to create a sun and a paper mask to separate the land area before spraying on yellow, orange and brilliant red. Next I rubbed away the sun mask.........I am presently using Pebeo masking fluid and I think it's the best yet. I used Pan Pastels for the land elements of the scene and a mixture of Stampscapes, Sutter, Art Impression and Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Hope you all have a good Sunday and keep warm in this cold and frosty weather.

  7. Good Sunday morning Brenda
    Gorgeous cards today especially the purple/blue one, these are my favourite colours. I have used Brusho many times at work but never for card making. You work is inspiring me to give them a ago for my cards too.
    Enjoy your Sunday

  11. Stunning cards Brenda, love the first best though. I have never worked with Pan Pastels, look so prettyxxx

  12. Wonderful cards, Brenda. I especially love the rich colours and texture of the first one. Isn't it funny how we admire the technique skills of others and think we could never create anything similar, while the other person is simply sticking to her own comfort zone. On the other hand, seeing others use different techniques that inspire you to try something new is what makes our crafting world so interesting.
    We had quite a storm last night. Today, it's hazy (cannot distinguish the sea from the sky) but the temperature is up, so it's probably Sahara sand blowing in from the south, causing headaches and dirty cards.
    Have a wonderful Sunday and keep warm!
