Brushos, Forever Young, Use them or Lose them

Use them or lose them #19 project #2

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

This week it is one of my old favourites… Forever Young.  I rarely use this stamp set now but still love the tree swing image and the lovely clock.

Decided this time to try with the rainbow brusho stamping technique… and wow I love them!


The tree swing stamp didn’t stamp perfectly but it was enough to make a very successful card topper. I die cut it out and layered it onto some scraps and added the handcarved brusho stamp to the card blank.



The clock stamped well although a little wet, at least the clock face is clear.  I kept the background simple with a punched border to the mount.  I think the watercolour paper makes a real difference for this technique.

I was undecided on Sunday about keeping this set… I’ve decided now. It’s not going anywhere!

Happy crafting!
