CB challenge 32

 Sharing two ideas using stamps from the one-day special tv show recently.
Both cards use a brusho background and stamps from the silhouette grasses set of stamps.
I used the brushos slightly differently this time, sprinkling onto a mat using two greens and turquoise before spritzing with water and then laying card down onto the mat.
  The first card used the original print using watercolour card, the second used a later print from the same powders onto stamping card, obviously much lighter. For the central panel I mopped up the colour at the end, so even lighter.
I stamped one grass using the brusho mix, picking the colour up from the mat which gave a blotchy print, and added another grass coloured with waterbased marker pens in the gaps. The central image of a third grass was stamped using black archival ink.
The panels were matted onto a dark green card, then onto a white 5"x7" base card.

The second version used one stamp on the background, inked with marker pens. the main image this time is from the baroque meadow stamp. This time the matts are black and copper for the centre panel and copper for the background, so truer to the colours.
I had fun doing these, but ended up with a bad case of green hands!
