Are you like me and love to try new products out? I have watched others play with Brusho's all year last year and I wanted some for Christmas and Dear Mother In-law was sweet enough to buy me the 12 pack and I am loving them! So during the winter break, I made some panels for cards I started with white Heat embossing then let the magic work with the water and Brusho pigment powder, I know there are a bunch of fun things to do with them but for now, this is what I have done!
I wanted to share with you a closeup, see all those specks? that's the texture that Brusho does when it' doesn't have a lot of water to make them "burst"
Gold embossing powder shows an elegance to anything you create, so although this stamp from Taylored Expressions was most likely meant for a "cute" valentines day card, this card in my mind's eye is perfect for those special occasions (anniversary, wedding, or telling that special someone how they make you feel.) I really think that Brusho's and gold heat embossing goes together.
This card was used with a little bit of Brusho's and a lot of water, I didn't want too many specks in this card.I wanted the color to look fluid and loose. To see more of my cards with the Mandala stamp that I love go here.
While I had my red, and orange and yellow Brusho's out I made this star background. Please tell me I am not the only one that stamps on the card panel with a background stamp without an idea? I am glad I did because I love this background to this card. Most often than not I save time by stamping a black image to my card base panel for a rainy day and then when I am able to have my "Artsy stuff out" Then it's no big deal to make a couple backgrounds!
I loved the Brusho's with the Star Background from Taylored Expressions so much that I had to do one in blue tones, I a so glad I did! Makes for a really nice boy birthday card.
