Iceland Poppy die from Memory Box

Good afternoon Lovelies! Well I've been enjoying this lovely crisp but dry weather.

I'm sharing with you a couple of things I've made over the last few days incorporating the gorgeous Iceland Poppy die from Memory Box, I'm finding getting the shape right a bit tricky still, but they are gorgeous.

My first card I've used a scrap of linen texture card that I'd blotted some bubble wrap on after using it with Brusho's, I used a Sheena Douglass mask with some sandy texture paste and once dry just lightly added some gold gilding wax, the stamps are the new texture stamps from Crafters Companion, once I cut the 2 sizes of Iceland Poppies out with linen texture card I lightly sprinkled and spritzed some Brusho in Brilliant red, I assembled by blobbing hot glued onto the card first and adding the elements to it, a tiny bit of clear glitter glue to the stamens and viola!

I used a Tim Holtz Lacey stamp one the petals and tag and distress inks.

Splats with Distress stains.
My final tag I used A gorgeous Penny Black stamp and coloured it in with drawing gum, then Brusho's and bubble wrap over it, I removed the gum leaving the leaves white and stamped the little words, I also used Brusho's then stamped and cut out my birds, "Scribbly Birds" by Dina Wakley.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you like my creations? Have a great day xx Zoe xx

I have just found your website, and I couldn't be more delighted!
Recently I got some Brushos, and have been trying to find ways to use it. There is not much out there, other than photos of finished work and not much instruction on how to ACTUALLY use it. I have found so much inspiration in your art work, so glad I found you. Brushos have only recently come to my attention through a friend and I ordered them and have been "playing" for the last week. Please keep up the good work! I live in Canada and they (Brushos) are not well known here or in the States, as far as I can tell.
