A Spring Day



We have a new challenge starting today over at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges, this month our theme is 'Lots of Layers'. As always there is a very generous $20 voucher to be won from FlonzCraft.

It's another Brusho playtime from me, first I used masking fluid to mask the bottom of the skyline and sun, then when dry which only takes a few moments I used Brushos Ost Blue and Lemon with liberal sprays of water and let the colours drain down the page. Next I rubbed away the masking fluid and stamped Flonz 50's Fashion Girl onto the card base and again onto a scrap of paper, beached away the colour from her face arms and legs, coloured with pencils then paper pieced her dress. The sentiment is also from Flonz and finally I added a few grasses and leaves around the edges.

Hope you all have a good week.

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous Brenda and I love your colour palette. The stamp is beautiful and I'll be looking out for that one, she looks so elegant. You've done a wonderful job bleaching out the colour to achieve such a perfect skin tone. I always find your artwork truly inspirational, thank you. Wishing you a happy crafting week. Sandra X X

Loving the bright colors in your vintage card - I marvel at how the women of that era could wear the clothing and be so elegant. I wonder if their underclothes were comfortable? LOL Beautiful card! hugs, de
