Since attending the Happy Little Stampers retreat in Swindon a few weeks ago, my interest in Brushos has been rekindled. Although I had bought a set of them, they had remained practically unused, but now they are having a renaissance!
This card was made from part of an unsuccessful piece of experimentation, but a panel cut from the original piece looked good enough to use! The stamps are from PolkaDoodles, clear embossed and I shook and spritzed various shades  of Brushos over the stamping!
The sentiment is from Stamplorations, layered in black and white, the butterflies are from SSS and All Occasion Dies.


  1. A woman after my own heart! I won't throw anything away that goes wrong unless I'm absolutely sure it can't have a second chance elsewhere :)
    Love the white contrasting pieces against your Brusho's.

  2. Wow love this card it's stunning!

  3. Brilliant! Fab make and great that you are now using a piece or previously redundant stash - YAY!


  4. This is very pretty Chrissie! Brushos are so bright and vibrant ... and they look beautiful paired with the black stamping. Love your white butterfly and the layered white and black sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

  5. I love this! Perfect use of brushos...your colors of the forest are so inviting for the butterfly.

  6. A beautiful, dramatic background piece Chrissie! I love the silhouette stamped on it and the contrast of the white butterfly! Very nice indeed! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at CAS Mix Up!
