floral notes

 For my last post this year I have made two cards that could be used as thank you cards

Both cards have brusho backgrounds, and use the same stamp from the floral notes set. For both cards I stamped the image first using versafine and clear EP, then masked it using masking fluid.  I have finally found a fluid that works on smooth stamping card, all the ones I have tried before work beautifully on watercolour card but rip the surface of stamping card.  This one by Talens was recommended by Jane Aldridge, and works beautifully, as well as being easy to clean off the brush.

I sprinkled the brusho powders over and spritzed with water, then rubbed off the masking once the card was thoroughly dry.

For the first card I coloured the image with promarkers, then diecut it and added a diecut matt.

The second card I left the image white, and used silver mirri and black matts, and added the sentiment from Mackintosh sentiments clear stamp set.

I wish you all a  very happy, healthy and crafty New Year.
