Lelli-bot Crafts September Challenge

I love Lelli-bot Crafts and have missed playing in their challenges since starting work. I knew I had to make the effort to join in this time round and having been at a demo day on Sunday and spent some pennies, here's my creation!

Thanks to the very lovely Lorraine at Craft World in Hillington, Glasgow, I bought some Brushos and have fallen in love with them!! I have played around with them on various papers but for this card, I've used some white pearlescent paper. I tapped out some Purple, Sea Green and Black Brusho dust on the paper and sprayed with water via my Tim Holtz mini mister. I then used a straw to 'blow' the wet inky paint around the page. I did dry a bit off with paper towel.
I've used a Gothic Grunge topper and added more Brusho to that in the same way as the background. The challenge theme is 'ribbons and bows' so I used some American Seam Binding ribbon to make a bow for the top corner and added a Lelli-bot metal charm. To finish I added Washi tape and some 'Juniper' liquid pearls too.

I will enter this in the following challenges -
