Hello 'Friend'

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for Just Us Girls 
I just loved playing with this weeks Trend Challenge
chosen by our Awesome Angie
and it's a huge favourite of mine.
I have quite a collection but one of my favourites is
ARTplorations Flowers 1

I got out a background piece from my
'bits box' again and thought the
brusho background would be a
perfect backing for those gorgeous flowers.
I added gloss gel medium to white acrylic paint
for my stenciling then my white and purple
CUTplorations hello dies
 and STAMPloratons friend sentiment.
adding a white background then
onto purple card stock.

Hope you liked my stenciled flower
and don't forget to pop over and see what
our May Guest Designer Patti Kehl
and the Team created then join us this week.
You could be our next Chic of the Week and
be in the running for Guest Designer in July.

Thanks for popping in

We're about to embark on Day 2 of bike race officiating (and Day 14 of NOT being in my craftroom...eek!), but popping in to let you know that the combination of your white silhouette flowers and brusho background is gorgeous! Such a cool technique! Love this!

Nancy said...

It would be one of my favs too! Great color combo too! Love it!

Mac Mable said...

Those brusho's on the background are fabulous and the stencil work looks great. The gloss medium combined with the white acrylic paint is such an effective way to get gloss and it x

Kara Lynne said...

Beautifully stenciled, Ina, and you're right, the background is perfect for those flowers! Such beautiful colors that shine through.

Patti said...

I love this happy card!! the white in contrast to the pop of color is brilliant! : )

Loll said...

The colours of the Brushos background are gorgeous. I love how you managed to get several opposites colours (green, purple, orange) ... amazing colours. Looks amazing with this beautiful stencil. Great idea to add white acrylic paint to gel medium to get the opaque finish you needed. LOVE it! xx

Sue VanDeVusse said...

That background is so vibrant and pretty and is the perfect backdrop for the beautiful white flowers!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Love that you used paint with your stencil! That bg goes perfectly to make the flowers stand out.

Bobby said...

A colored background and white stenciling. This combination made one glorious card, Ina.
