A touch of sunshine

I literally had about 10 minutes craft play the other day (if you don't include drying time) and rustled this up:
I used:

- a snippet of SU's 'Daffodil Delight' card stock to make the small card blank (it's about 3.75" square)

- black backing card, die cut using a Spellbinders square die

- a snippet of water colour card, sprinkled with little touches of lemon, yellow and orange Brushos, then lightly misted with water and left to dry

- a cone flower stamp which came free with Craft Stamper magazine, stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink pad - then I die cut the whole Brusho'd square, again using a Spellbinders square die

- three black round glossy Josy Rose nail heads

Job done :)



  1. Aren't those Brushos just fabulous? LOVE this! Great contrast with that black daisy!

  2. Splendid! Just splendid. Love what you are doing with those Brushos, and I've been trying to find them in the USA. Most places I've been able to get a hit, will show out of stock. These made a fab background for your dramatic flower. A beautiful card, Miss! TFS & Hugs

  3. Gorgeous!!! Love the background on this beautiful card.

  4. Lovely inky background, and great use of the stamp well done on ten minute card not sure have done one of them in loooong time, Di! Shaz in oz.x

  11. Brilliant 10 minute card! I finally bought brushos on Monday - just waiting for them to arrive now.

  12. That's such a pretty background, and I love the cone flower silhouette! NJ

  13. Hi Di,
    beautiful card.
    Love the fab Brusho paint effect background, and the black stamped image.
    Now I am going to look at these paints if I can find them as I have seen yours and Sarn"s beautiful creations, and have never heard of them.
    So I feel I'm lagging behind somewhat.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  14. Di your card is gorgeous the backing is fantastic x

  15. I don't know what Brushos are but I sure do love your background Di! It is so pretty and great colors. I love your silhouette flower, so pretty against that lovely background. Hugs, Brenda

  16. Wow that's a quick card, and so effective with the black silhouette stamp
    Hugs Debs x

  17. This is a wonderful card, really pretty and striking with the pops of black x

  18. Super little card, Di. I love the combination of colours - they work really well with the black stamping. Happy Birthday for tomorrow - hope you have a wonderful day :) Hugs, Elizabeth xx
