Had a good afternoon playing at Gissing with Moira, Barbara, Liz and Jill last Sunday- it was a shame Janet was ill and couldn't join us; we only actually did one card, the rest of the time we were playing with brusho ink powders...........
The card on the left is my version of Moira's original, inspired by You-tube originally, then Eileen Godwin.
Moira had unfortunately left the precut circles behind, so we ended up using squares instead - being naturally awkward, I stuck mine on diagonally instead of square like everyone else, but I did stamp and cut out the flowers, even adding the gems in the centre!
Rather a poor scan, but far better than the photo I took, believe me!
For the remainder of the time we played with brushos - only Moira and I had used them before, it was very interesting watching everyone's faces as the inks spread! On some of them we also used liquid perfect pearls, which gave a lovely shimmery effect.
I ended up with a nice pile of background papers , and have used one of them here with the angel from the new Chocolate Baroque set A child is born. She was stamped in black versafine and clear embossed before painting with H2Os - I haven't used these for ages, and really must get some more of them.
I discovered that the sheets with a lot of the pearls resist being stamped onto, and that the H2Os won't cover the splodges of pearl either, which was why there is a golden angel on a yellow background instead of a snowy blue/grey sky one!
