Thoughts of You .....and ink

I have a friend who's had a major op,
so wanted to send her a card to help her mend.

I bought a new stencil, cut one out, sprinkled brushos through it,
and sprayed/spritzed/misted with water.

It was a bit 'runny' so I tried again and it was even more 'blurry'.
So, plan B was to sprinkle onto approx parts of card,
spritz with water again, and cut the stencil,
lining up the stem and flower within the appropriate colours.

I'm sure I could have explained that better!
Anyhoo, I cut another outline from black card,
inserted the inked bits,
which resulted in the above 'thoughts of you'.

I'm going to enter this in Happy Little Stampers

and as I used lots of snippets......
off to the Snippets Playground I go!

See ya later!



  1. Oh Lesley, you got there in the end and this really is such a gorgeous end result! Those flowers really are beautiful!

  2. I'm in full agreement with Di!

  3. Your technique created a wonderful stained glass look to your black framed stem! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely note - my husband feels an affinity for Kent, England - apparently his mother chose his name from that given their British heritage!

  4. It came out looking really cool and very stained glass like. It sounds like it was a lot of work to get there though. Your friend will appreciate it!

  5. This is simply beautiful. xx

  6. Gorgeous card Lesley. Love how you've kept the stems and outline black with the beautiful inserted brushos pieces. So clever and so beautiful! Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers.

  7. This worked out beautifully! I love the end result. The brushos are awesome! Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers xx

  8. Beautiful way to use the Brusho's and a gorgeous, gorgeous card!

  9. Gorgeous card - an inspired way of using Brushos too. Love it :) Elizabeth xx
