Last Brusho for a while

March 13, 2018

Here is another card we will be making at my March classes.  For this card, I embossed the lower two-thirds of Whisper White card using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder (boy is this folder gorgeous and it’s free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration).  I wrapped the top of the embossing with Silver 1/8″ Ribbon and attached the embossed panel to scored and folded Real Red card.  I stamped the greeting from the Beautiful Day stamp set onto Whisper White card using Always Artichoke ink , punched one short end with the Triple Banner Punch , sponged the edges with Always Artichoke ink and attached the greeting to the card front.  I cut Always Artichoke card using one of the dies from the Flourish Thinlits Dies.  I attached the Always Artichoke leaf to the top right hand corner of the card front.  I stamped the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set onto Shimmery White card using Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I used my Aqua Painter to add water to the inside of the embossing.  It pools and you need to leave plenty of water inside the embossed lines.  Then I sprinkled Yellow Brusho, trying to cover most of the flower.  I sprinkled Gamboge Brusho into the central parts of the flower and lastly add Brilliant Red Brusho to the very middle of the flower.  You need to let the flower dry completely before cutting out.  I tried to hurry the first flower with the Heat Gun and it kind of made everything look very flat, so this time I waited.   I stamped the leaf part of the flower once more onto Shimmery White card using Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  Once more I used my Aqua Painter to pool water inside the embossed lines of the leaf.  I sprinkled the leaf with Moss Green Brusho and once more left it to dry before cutting out.  Once the leaf and the flower were cut out I attached the leaf to the back of the flower and then to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed a narrow strip of Whisper White card using the Basked Weave Embossing Folder.  I attached a narrow strip of Real Red card behind one long edge and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.

I really do love playing with Brusho, however, I must warn you, it is very messy.  The crystals are very fine and go everywhere, so make sure you cover anything you don’t want sprinkled!

Bye for now,
