More Fun with Brushos

Brusho Crystal Coulors are a fun, new product that Stampin’ UP! is offering in the Occasions catalog.  You can create so many beautiful, watercolor effects with Brushos!  On the two samples below, I started with watercolor paper.  For the sample on the left, I sprinkled various Brushos over the paper, then spritzed lightly with water.  On the right, I wet the paper thoroughly first, then sprinkled on my Brushos.  It’s kind of neat to see how changing the steps slightly creates such different looks.

Brusho backgrounds

I began by stamping the flowers in Versamark ink onto Watercolor Paper.  Next, I sprinkled the images with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated the powder with a heat tool until it melted.  Once cool, I filled the sections with water using an Aqua Painter.  I added colors individually, starting with the yellow center and working my way out with the red and orange crystals.  The end result is a muted, but bold watercolored image.

Beautiful Day Brusho

The backgound was sprinkled with the Prussian Blue Brusho crystals before spritzing with water.  It gives it a very splattered, random effect.  You’ll get different results using different papers such as our Shimmery White, Whisper White, and Watercolor paper.  Once all the pieces were fully dry, I fussy cut the flowers and stamped the greeting in Basic Black archival ink.

I still need to complete cards for the 2 background images above, so I’m sure I’ll have a few more Brusho projects to share soon.

You’ll find a complete list of products used at the end of this post.
