And Now for Something Completely Different

Hello and thanks for popping in.  I had to have a little play last night as the postie brought me some new goodies yesterday - the  Tim Holtz Wildflower stamps.   I've kept this one fairly simple, stamped with Archival and clear embossed.  I made 2 different brusho backgrounds, both using Burnt Sienna and just varying the amount of water. The top layer was also shaded with Black soot.
Just a short post as I need a little bit more play, but I must remember to keep the fingers clean as I'm out for a meal with friends tonight.
I am going to enter this at Country View Crafts - Make your own backgkround
Have a great weekend.
Avril xx

I guess those stamps will be on my wish list now I have seen your card Avril.
It looks beautiful and the brusho background works so well for the image.

Love how the black flower stands on the colorful background. This design works for anything from a with sympathy card to a birthday or just a because one. I'm sure you're going to show us lots of beautiful cards using this stamp....
