The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Creating a Background

The challenge set this week on the Craft Barn blog is to create an interesting background using Brusho, inks or paints.

I've had a set of  Brusho for quite a while now but only used them a couple of times. So time to dust them off and make a bright, cheerful background for a birthday card. I used Fresco paint to stencil the dots, add some rings and credit card lines. The flags, puffin and speech bubble were stamped onto card, cut out and coloured with Distress Inks before gluing to the background.

I'm also entering this card into the Crafty Individuals March Challenge .

It's a brilliant colour combination, it will get this card noticed! The Brushos look vibrant, the stencilling is great (good choice of colour here too), making a great background for the lovely puffin. A winner for me...
