Watercolor Brusho Adds Gorgeous Color

Watercolor Brusho

Watercolor Brusho adds gorgeous color effortlessly, and each time you use it, it is unique!

Havent used Brusho before? Let me give you a few quick tips.

1) Wet your paper first. I used watercolor paper for this card, but you can use other paper, just use less water.

2) Poke 1 or 2 holes in the top of the Brusho container.

3) Start with the lightest color first.

4) Shake the Brusho sparingly over the wet paper. Spritz with water, wait a moment, spritz again.

5) Repeat step 4 until desired color.

6) Add different colors of Brusho as desired, repeating step 4.

7) Dry with heat tool.

I embossed the branch of flowers image first by stamping the image with Versamark and embossing with clear embossing powder. Then I started with the yellow Brusho and ended with the orange Brusho following the steps listed above. I love the washed watercolor look as well as the little specks of color dotted randomly across the surface.

Then I added the embossed cross from Hold on to Hope, a new stamp set and Framelit bundle available June 3 from the new Occasions catalog. I stamped and clear embossed another branch of flowers as well as a mum and die cut both, and adhered with rolled up glue dots.

I tied a piece of Very Vanilla Lace Trim and a piece of the Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon (free with a $50 purchase beginning in January) together with the gold 1/8 inch ribbon and used a glue dot to stick the whole thing on the card front.

And Tutti-fretting Adhesive-backed(!) sequins scattered on top finish off the card.
