Brushos and fairies!

Hi everyone, been a bit quiet here due to some sad family stuff happening!
I managed some time in the craft room today though.

This was quite a simple card to make, just sprinkled brushos on some watercolour paper and spritzed with water for the background. Used my misti stamp press to stamp the fairy in versafine ink, stamped the sentiment and that was that!

I'm linking up to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday where the theme is to make your own background.

At Addicted to Stamps & More, it's a make your mark theme. I've used brushos.

At Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge the theme is fantasy.

It's a clean and simple toppings option at Seize the Birthday.

Lavinia stamps; versafine ink; brushos; watercolour paper.

Thanks for visiting,

The colours of the Brushos background are gorgeous Cathy! Love how the colours spread and mingled. Very tricky to combine purple and yellow with getting mud, but you have done it perfectly. So pretty with the silhouette fairy image and your matching sentiment. Great card!

Sorry to hear there has been sadness for you and your family Cathy. Sending love and a big hug. xx
