I spent some time yesterday playing with my recently acquired Brusho crystals (just had to try some when I spotted them at a show recently) and the pearly paint background technique and it certainly helped to take my mind off the horrible weather. I used one of the pieces as a background on this third sympathy card. The flower was stamped, coloured with alcohol pens and cut out so that it could be popped onto the oval which had the stem stamped. The greeting was also stamped from the same stamp set. Details below of items used. Thankfully the sun is shining today although there is a definite chill in the air - winter woollies time I think although I think the thermals can stay in storage for a bit longer!
