Rubbernecker Stamps - 'Flowers in the Breeze' Stamp Set

Hi ho everyone. I've had a busy few days and now I'm trying to catch up on stuff ! So here are three cards that I made earlier, using Rubbernecker Stamps.
All the stamps are available to pre-order in the UK, from Oyster Stamps.
Card one was created using the 'Flowers in the Breeze' set and Distress Inks. 

Card two, also created with Distress Inks and the set called 'Wild Flowers in the Wind'.

My final card is 'Daisy' and I painted the image with Distress Pens.
Got to rush, thank you for looking today. 
You Tube have some videos from Rubbernecker Stamps... have a look here.
Back soon.

Lavinia Stamps and Brusho Paints.

Hi ho, me again with another card made with Brusho Paints to share with you.
I love these little pots of powder crystals.Oyster Stamps have all the colours! 
A couple of circle dies, tiny amounts of Brusho Paints in various colours, mixed with water onto a white ceramic tile or Splodge Mat. Be sure you keep all the colours apart or they will go muddy. 
Swipe some water colour card through the colours to pick up the paint.

Dry with a heat gun then add more colours, in layers, over the top. 
The image called Zen Leaf 2 is from Lavinia Stamps and was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. After drying the image with a heat gun I 'lifted' some of the paint using bleach to make the image pop . 

Please note that the Lavinia Stamps on-line store is closed until 25th August... they are offering a 10% discount on their stamps because you may have to wait a while for your order to arrive.. GET IN!
Have a good week. 
Thank you for popping over to look at my Blog.
