Brusho Birthday

March 9, 2018

I have been working on cards for next month’s class where we will be using the fabulous new product Brusho.  There are many ways to use this product and quick search of You Tube will bring up many wonderful Videos to show you how.   For this card I embossed the top section of Whisper White card with the floral folder from the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.  I stamped the greeting from the Beautiful Day stamp set onto the lower right hand corner using Peekaboo Peach ink.  I wrapped the embossed card with Peekaboo peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding and tied a know before attaching the card to scored and folded Peekaboo Peach card.  I stamped the the flower onto Shimmery White Card by firstly inking with Versamark and then Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The image is sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder and then heat set.  I sprinkled a little Yellow Brusho onto a Clear Block and using my Aqua Painter added a drop of water which I mixed into the Brusho crystals to clear a liquid ink.  I coloured the floral image completely using my Aqua Painter and the yellow ink.  I cleaned the block and added some Gamboge Brusho which I again mixed with water and used my Aqua Painter to add darker hues to the flower.  I cleaned the block and added some Brilliant Red Brusho to the block which I mixed with water and used my Aqua Painter to add some darker shading to my flower.  I cleaned the block once more and added some Moss Green Brusho which I once more mixed with water before using my Aqua Painter to add some colour to the leaf.  You need to let the Shimmery White Card dry completely before cutting out the image.  I attached the dry image to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed Whisper White card using the same floral folder from the Petal Pair Embossing Folder.  I attached a narrow strip of Peekaboo Peach card behind one long edge and attached it to Whisper White card.

Let me tell you, playing with Brusho is so much fun and you are only really limited by your imagination.  This is a new product which is available in the current Occasions Catalogue as a set of five colours.  I am hoping we get more of these to add to our stash of colouring tools.  One thing you must remember is that these Brusho crystals are very fine.  DO NOT open the bottle.  Use your Paper Piercing Tool to pierce a hole in the top of the container and use a thumb tack to cover the hole.  If you open the bottle you will end up with Brusho everywhere and the product will not last very long.  Also a quick tip is to shake the bottle before sprinkling out the crystals.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
