Blooming House Of Cards


     The House Of Cards challenge this month has a gorgeous photo prompt with pretty shades of lilac, mauve and purple.  Needing no excuse to break out the Brusho's, as soon as I saw the colours for this challenge the box was on my desk.
     The flowers have been stamped and embossed in white on watercolour card. Then the fun began, using a water brush I painted one petal and sprinkled purple Brusho on it, blew away the excess and moved on the the next petal.
     All petals were done one at a time to make sure the paint stayed just where I wanted it, the stems and leaves have been done the same way.
The flower centre were done last so that the petals were completely dry, these were done with grey.
     The thing I love about these paints is the way they show the component colours when not completely mixed or saturated, giving some great effects.
     All that was needed was a mat layer to compliment the image and then on to a white card blank. The greeting comes with the flowers in a Woodware set called Erica, this was embossed in silver and die cut before mounting on foam pads.
   
   
     Our challenge at the House Of Cards runs all month so please come and join us with your creations.
