Had a lot of fun playing with Stampin’ Up!’s Brusho Colour Crystals in this weekend’s class. This card uses the pieces from our practice color palette (see the photo below).
Brusho comes in five colors: Brilliant Red, Gamboge (an orangish hue), Moss Green, Prussian Blue, and Yelllow.
Just to have the guests get a feel for the colors and use of, we applied water to watercolor paper with Stampin’ Up!’s Aqua Painters. We then sprinkled the Brusho onto paper and water and watched the magic happen. (The Brushos activate when they hit water.) These little swatches just gave us a good idea of what each color could look like. You get a different result each time depending on the amount of water and crystals used. (See photo below.)
I was brainstorming for a way to use these little pieces. I decided to use the Stitched Shapes Framlits Squares to cut a portion of the color. I then adhered four of the five onto a piece of basic black card stock. I layered this onto a piece of Shimmery White paper I had on the table. I picked up the Perennial Birthday stamp set for the sentiment and “dot” pattern in Dapper Denim.
The Brushos are an awesome technique for creating backgrounds and washes. This is just one of the many examples of the cards made with these fun crystals.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you get a chance to play with Brushos!
