Freshly Made 328

March 19, 2018

I found time to play along with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made this week which gave me the opportunity to work with Brusho.  I cut a mask in a piece of scrap copy paper using one of the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  I laid the mask over a piece of Whisper White card and sprinkled the opening with a little of the Prussian Blue Brusho and spritzed it with water.  I set the piece aside to dry.  I cut the leaves from Whisper White card using the Petals and More Thinlits dies.  I stamped the bird from the Petal Palette stamp set onto Whisper White card using Basic Black Archival ink.  I also stamped three of the flowers from the Petal Palette stamp set onto Whisper White card using Powder Pink ink.  The bird and the flowers were cut out using the matching Petals and More Thinlits dies.  I sprinkled some Moss Green Brusho onto a clear block and used my Aqua Painter to add water, mix the crystals and then colour the die cut leaves.  I cleaned the block and sprinkled a little of the Prussian Blue Brusho onto the block, once more using the Aqua Painter to add water, mix the crystals and then colour the bird.  Once the leaves had dried I attached them over the brusho background and attached the flowers to the leaves using Mini Glue Dots.  The Whisper White card is attached to Pool Party card and then scored and folded Thick A4 Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Petal Palette stamp set onto Whisper White card using Basic Black Archival ink and cut out the greeting using the die from the Petals and More Thinlits Dies.  I also used the detailed banner die from the same set to cut Powder Pink card.  I attached the Powder Pink banner behind the greeting banner and then attached it to the card front.  Lastly I added the bird image so that it sits on the greeting banner.

To decorate the inside of the card, I mixed some Moss Green Brusho and used the Aqua Painter to add the colour to the leaf image from the Petal Palette stamp set.  The image is stamped onto the lower left corner of the inside of the card.  I am loving how versatile these Brusho crystals are and I am hoping that we get a few more colours when the new catalogue launches in June this year.  It was fun to use the Brusho like and ink and you can get lighter and darker shades by modifying the amount of water you use to mix the crystals.  If you are unsure about this great product, just do a You Tube search and check out all the great ideas being shared.  Love to know what you think.

Bye for now,
