Vibrant Retro Flower

Hello everyone,  I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

Chocolate Baroque's fabulous new stamp sets for February are Sketchy Doodle Flowers and Sketchy Doodle Landscape.    I've been working with Sketchy Doodle Landscape which has been great fun and seems to beg for vibrant colours.


The background was created with Dylusions Inks along with white Brusho crystal inks.  It's not difficult - I spray Dylusions inks, spritz with water, sprinkle a tiny bit of white Brusho powders and spritz a little with water (if needed) again.   When dry  I over stamped with a fragment from Abstract Fragments.  I embossed the main images from Sketchy Doodle Landscape with black, coloured with Dylusions ink (using a brush and water on a craft mat).    'With Love' is from Mackintosh Sentiments. 

Thanks for your visit and have a great day!

Only one thing better than dylusions Shirley and that is dylusions AND brushos and yes I totally agree vibrancy was needed here.

Great card with the inky-watery background and then the clear graphic flower. Your design and colours seem to shout for joy. Your "not difficult" techniques give such fabulous results.
