Brusho Blended Seasons

August 6, 2018

Today’s card uses the same layout as the card I shared with you on Friday and can be found on Page 151 of the Annual Catalogue.  This time I decided to try a little water colouring with Brusho Crystals.  I attached a piece of the 2018-2020 In-Colour Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the greeting from the Blended Seasons stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the Very Vanilla card using Grapefruit Grove ink before attaching to scored and folded Grapefruit Grove card.  I stamped the floral image from the Blended Seasons stamp set onto Watercolour Paper using Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I used my Aqua Painter to add a little water to Yellow Brusho Crystals on one of my Stampin’ Blocks.  I also added water to the inside of the embossed flowers using the Aqua Painter.  Then I dipped the Aqua Painter into the Brusho and then into the water on the inside of the flowers.  Some of the colour spread outside of the embossing but not much.  I repeated the process using Gamboge Brusho Crystals and then Brilliant Red Brusho Crystals.  To colour the leaves I repeated the process using the Moss Green Brusho Crystals.  I let the Watercolour Paper dry before attaching to Grapefruit Grove card and then the card front using dimensionals.

I kept it simple on the inside of the card by attaching a piece of Grapefruit Grove card behind one long edge of a piece of the same 2018-2020 In-Colour Designer Series Paper before attaching to the bottom of Very Vanilla card.

I haven’t played with my Brusho Crystals or watercolouring in a while and I don’t know why because it is such fun.

Bye for now,
