Working with Brusho by Stampin' Up!


I love playing with Brusho........
it's like a powder paint that always amazes me when you add water..........
the particles have different colours, that when combined give you the colour on the pot,
but if you add a small amount of water you get a speckled effect.....
every time you get a different effect.

We experimented at a recent class, and made 2 cards.
The first is a background, made by sprinkling the Brusho, and spritzing with water.
The second, cased from Judy May, is watercoloured, mixing the Brusho with water, using a paint brush.




The "explosion" was pure fluke, I just turned the piece of card around to suit,
the circles are stamped with Playful Backgrounds, and the epoxy "bubbles" add cute detail.
The label used Tabs for everything, punched a circle and scalloped circle

I watercoloured the basket of flowers, adding shading, and some shadow underneath,
to "ground" the basket so it's not floating mid air.
I added the Sweet Soiree paper to the yellow card, then ran both through the Bigshot
using the new Basketweave embossing folder.
The butterfly is from the same Blossoming Basket set, and fussy cut.
We decorated the insides, and envelopes using Rose Wonder, Bloomin' Love,
and an old Papermania stamp set.
