I'm on a roll today for Carla aka Covington Crafter's terrific VSN challenge.....Give Me a Head With Hair!!
I tried to join in Carla's challenge yesterday, I stamped this image on vellum and learnt the hard way that touching stamped vellum (before heat setting) isn't a good idea.
When I make backgrounds I usually do a full A4 sheet, so here is some more of the Brusho cardstock I made for my other card.
With the magic of MISTI I stamped this image (and sentiment) about 10 times with Versafine to get it to look dark enough on the hectic background. I added a few flicks with a beautiful Gelli Roll pen that was a RAK from JodyLynn.
Thank you for looking.

This is Gorgeous!!!! Notice I used a capital G. Your bg looks psychedelic and perfect with your silhouetted flower child. You are rockin my challenge. I think we need some kind of exchange going and will have to figure out what we bring to each other's house!

Fabulous image, Susie. I LOVE your background, also. I think my hair may have looked like that yesterday in the March winds except it didn't have all those pretty designs in it....just the windswept look. :)

That dramatic background is incredible, Susie! It makes me think of big crashing waves - totally a different track to flowing flower-filled hair. I usually try to use Archival black or even StazOn on vellum - even the Archival needs a few minutes to dry. But isn't it worth the effort!!

I was window shopping because 123 sent me an email this morning... and I had come across this stamp thinking it would be so perfect for this challenge... and so, it is very cool to see I was right, I love the colors you chose for this Susie :)

Another wonderful card - with so much to gaze at. She definitely has that "windswept and interesting" look about her. She would really fit in here well today - cold southerly wind coming up from Victoria (ha ha).
