Hello there, I hope you’re having a great week! I’m having quite a busy week but I’ve managed to bring you this card today. It is part of another Brutus Monroe Blog hop and it is part of a collaboration with Karen Burniston Dies. I have never worked with Karen Burniston dies before, but can I just say they are so easy to work with and very fun and unique. They pair brilliantly with Brutus Monroe products and I hope you find lots of inspiration along the Karen Burniston blog hop from the fabulous design team!
I created a cute little scene using Brutus Monroe stamps and inks with the Natures edge die set from Karen Burniston. If you are a UK reader, you can pick up Karen Burniston dies over here too, I have had a google and there are some shops stocking them in the UK so do check them out!

BRUTUS MONROE: KAREN BURNISTON BLOG HOP card Details
First of all, I created 3 pieces of watercoloured cardstock to create the grassy area. I used Cabbage Colour Burst from Brutus Monroe, these work just like Brusho powders, but you can get them in a range on Brutus Monroe colours! This cabbage works well for grass. I tapped the powder onto a piece of Smooth Watercolour Cardstock and spritzed well with water. The powder has a variety of pigments in it to make the colour so you get lots of texture. I also used a Brusho colour as well so I could get an ombre in the grass. These were set to one side to dry whilst I worked on the rest of the card.
For the sky, I cut several pieces of Alabaster cardstock using the cloud die from the Karen Burniston die set. Using a blending tool, I blended Cornflower and then Rock Candy Surface inks on from the bottom fading out to white. Adding the colour with a blending tool helps to give a soft subtle look to create more realistic clouds. For the sky background, I just blended on Cornflower onto a white card panel.
BRUTUS MONROE: KAREN BURNISTON BLOG HOP Card Assembely
Once the grass panels were dry, I used the 2 remaining dies from the Karen Burniston set to cut a variety of grass banks. These were layered onto the card panel and the stamps added in between layers. This was framed with an Alabaster cardstock rectangle stitched frame.
A sentiment was die cut several times out Lunchbag cardstock and layered on top of another. To add definition, an additional Raven cardstock die cut was added slightly offset and a sentiment was stamped beneath. Lastly, Acrylic Bubbles and clear Nuvo drops were added to the background.
