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
