Well I don't know about the weather where you are but it's been raining here for the last few days and it's hard to believe that we ever had such glorious weather back in February. It's been lovely to see all the blossom on the trees and you can see buds starting to appear everywhere, so lets hope it won't be too long before spring arrives.
I'd like to share two cards with you today that I've made using my new 'Sebastian' stamp from Lavinia. I watched their shows last week on Hochanda and I just couldn't resist him.
The background on the first one was made by smooshing various Distress inks and then picking up the colour. The second one was made with Brushos and then I've used various inks around the edge to darken it. I tend to always do this with a darker colour as it draws in the viewers eye and frames the image. I also discovered a new products on the shows, which were the Brushos 'Sprinkle It.' These are absolutely amazing. They can be used in exactly the same way as normal Brusho to give a wonderful all over sparkle, or they can be mixed with water and painted directly where you need them. I've used the gold one on my second card but I don't think it shows too well in the photos. Once it's dry, then it's pretty much set in place, so it looks great but you don't have glitter all over the place. This will be a new experience for me as I normally sparkle wherever I go :)
Here are my cards:
That's all from me for today and I wish you all a wonderful weekend x
I'd like to enter my second card into the following challenges:
