Hello folks,

Thank you for visiting today.  Firstly, let me say thank you for all the comments about Misty, I know many of you have lost pets of your own and it know how tough it is.

Back to cards now though.... I made this card as a sample for Paul's shows on TV last weekend. Featuring the wonderful floral stamp sets by Jayne Nestorenko, this one is the Fuchsia set
 (this link is to the new website, the stamp is on the Gray Friday deal until midnight 27/11/16)

I started by stamping the image in archival ink onto watercolour cardstock.
Mix up some brusho (or other ink crystals) with some water
Wet the card around the image with a wet brush, then add some of the ink onto the card, you can add paint and dab it off again with paper towel until you like what you have.
While the paper is still wet, sprinkle a small amount of the crystals around and spritz, again, you can move the ink aroud with a brush and blot until you like the result.  I then sprinkled a tiny amount of the crystals and left them to spread on the wet card.
When everything was dry, I used Artisrty Inks to colour the image and added some sparkle to the flowers.
Cut the card to size and stamp the word 'Fuchsias' on to an offcut then mat it all on complimentary card.

Hope you all have a lovely day!
