Twins - Layout by Lynn Good

As my last post for this month, I have created another layout using this months wonderful mood board.  I have used the colour and flowers as inspiration.

Using the Heartfelt Creations - Botanic Orchid paper stock as my background and photo mat.

I used Viva Modelling Cream - Pearl and a memory Box Stencil to create the background

I have collated some tags from the collection and 2 doilees.  I later inked the edges of the tags with Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry and Evergreen Bough.

Some Close ups:

Flowers are from Prima

The chipboard is Whichcraft Do You Do - embossed with Stampendous Embossing Powder in Shabby Pink.

Thanks for stopping by and there is still time to enter this months challenge.
Til next time happy crafting :)

Fun with Altenew's Brush Art Florals

Hi there! Linda here today playing with Altenew's fabulous Brush Art Florals Stamp Set 
and my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.

First, a look at my card - 

To achieve this look I coloured directly onto the stamp with my Zigs combining these colours - Pink, Carmine Red, Yellow and Orange and Green and Light Green.
It was a very easy process - just scribble the colour onto the stamp, mist the stamp using a mini mister and stamp onto watercolour card.
If the colours didn't mix enough for my liking I took to the impression with my aqua brush and mixed them until they did :)
Once it was dry I sprayed the piece all over with Sparkle Shimmer pretty in real life.

I cut my sentiment from a pale yellow piece from the Watercolour Paper Pad and also from black card stock and adhered them together just a little offset for a bit more drama when attached to the colourful card base.
The floral piece has been adhered to my card base offset with another piece of the yellow watercolour paper - very pretty papers.
I hope you have an awesome crafty weekend coming up.
Bye for now...
