I created this one for Chocolate Baroque as a TV show sample for the recent Brusho’s show on the Craft Channel. Lesley was brilliant! You can still watch the show on catch up if you missed it.

Step By Step:
Brusho Backgrounds. I used the one on the right for this project.
- Paint the watercolour card with Brusho blending blues and reds for the sky into yellows and greens at the base. Drop on crystals and spritz with water to provide foliage texture in the foreground. Dry.
- Lay down the sunburst stencil and spray though with mica to create the sparkling sun rays. Dry and trim to approx. 14cm square to fit the card front.
- Stamp the tree (Orchard), birds (Landscape Edges), and foreground pebble texture (Glade) with Versafine.
- Stamp the foreground leaves (Woodland) in Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and the tree foliage (Woodland) in Barn Door Distress Ink. Touch up the tree image, and draw a base to anchor the tree, using a fine tipped brown pen. Add touches of glitter glue to the tree foliage.
- Apply Versamark around the card edges and heat emboss with glitter powder to give a distressed effect.
- Stamp the sentiment with Versafine onto a small panel. Edge with Crushed Olive Distress Ink.
- Outline the topper and card front with black alcohol marker to frame. Attach ribbon to topper and glue to card front. Glue on flowers and sentiment panel with 3D glue gel.
