It’s a Beautiful Day

Brushos are a new product offering for Stampin Up.  They are a crystal watercolor powder that you paint or shake out of little containers onto watercolor paper. Of course there are lots of techniques for this product but I’ll show you 3 ways to get you started.  I am using the Beautiful Day stamp set from the Occasion catalog and Amazing You from the Saleabration catalog.

For this first card I stamped the image with Black Archival ink onto watercolor paper.  I lightly misted the paper and sprinkled on some Prussian Blue and Yellow Brusho.  Then I misted the paper some more until the colors began to blend.

On this card I heat embossed the butterfly with white embossing powder, filled the areas of the butterfly with water and sprinkled on the Gamboge and Yellow Brusho.  Once it dried I brushed off any powder that was outside of the embossed image and then misted the watercolor paper and used the Prussian Blue and Yellow Brushos around it.

For this card I stamped the butterfly in Bermuda Bay and then misted the card stock with water.  This caused the butterfly to bleed.  While it was wet I added the Yellow Brusho.  Once the entire piece was dry, I revamped the butterfly.  All the cards were finished with some sequins and the Tutti-Frutti DSP.  I encourage you to try this product but be warned – it’s very addicting!  Hugs, Fran
