Guest Design Team Member Post 3 - Turquoise and green

Good morning everyone.

Today I am showing my final project for this session.
Hope you like it.

A card for a special friend.

I really like the look of white embossing with vivid colours so decided to get my Brushos out which I, shockingly, don't use very much.

Stamps used : Fleurs Nouveau - background
Flora Musica
Amazing Mackintosh words
Stamp and white  emboss the beautiful flower border horizontally  down the card, on the left.
This is repeated on the right side, so that the base of the stamp is just touching  the previous stamping.
Stamp and emboss the Flora Musica and then  cut away the background. Stamp the message  with Versafine Magestic blue ink.
Now for the Brusho fun.
I did a small section at a time.
With a wet brush, paint around the inside of several flowers and then sprinkle on some blue Brusho.
Let it spread, helping it into any holes with the brush.
Repeat with the other flowers and leave to 'do its own thing' for a while.
Dab dry with a cloth.
Swipe over the background with a wide, wet brush and repeat the process with a green colour. Help this along by brushing across, trying to avoid the flowers, then leave to spread . Dab if necessary.
Repeat with the Flora Musica then leave to dry.
Once the Flora Musica are dry,  cover the flower heads with Glossy Accents. 
Trim the side edges off the background , making it  16.5 x 18cm. (6 1/2 x 7 1/8 inches).
These strips are used to make the corner bands at the top of the card, picking up one of the individual flowers as the centre.
Matt and layer onto coordinating card.
The final size of my card was 19 x 19.5 cm. (7 5/8 x 7 6/8 inches)

Hope you have enjoyed my three posts as much as I enjoyed making them, and thank you for the lovely comments you have sent. They are much appreciated.

Happy crafting
