Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - Anything Goes

Hey there! Thanks for joining the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team today on our Anything Goes Blog Hop! What a great month to hang out with Brutus Monroe, with all the goodies that have been released, it feels like we are in Inspiration Heaven! Today, I have a heavenly card (night sky) card using the Flower Doodle Background Stamp, some Aqua Pigments and some Arteza Real Brush Pens.


To begin, I grabbed one of my Aqua Pigment backgrounds that I created a few months ago using Violet and Fuchsia and stamped out the Flower Doodle image in Raven Detail ink. At first, I wasn’t sure where this was going to take me, but I decided it looked a lot like a horizon just after the sun sets. So I took out my Arteza Real Brush Pens and colored in the flowers and leaves with colors that mixed well with the violet and fuchsia pigments.


After coloring in the image, I took a white gel pens and outlined the center of the image. This created a glowing effect that I really enjoyed. I heat embossed with the sentiment from the stamp set in the center using Alabaster Embossing Powder. I added some moonstones on the front for embellishment and popped it all up on a black card base!


I hope you enjoyed this night time floral scene! I encourage you to go through your stash of backgrounds and put a card together with one of the fantastic background stamps from Brutus Monroe’s latest release. You can find a list of supplies I used for this card in the grid below. I’d love for you to use my affiliate links when making a purchase.
