I got my Brusho recently and had time to play a little. The colors are vibrant. This is the card I made.
I had computer problems for a few days and was unable to participate in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge one week. This is the card I had ready.
Start with a card base of Always Artichoke. It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. I used the new Simple Stripes Embossing Folder on the front of the card.
The patterned paper for this card comes from the Tutti Frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack. The largest black and white rectangle is 2 1/2 x 4. The daffodil stripe is 2 1/4 x 4 1/2. The black and white stripe is 3/8 x 5 3/8. Sometimes it's hard to get designer paper to adhere to a background that has an embossing folder used. Fast Fuse is the adhesive that I used.
The Brusho flower is from the stamp set Beautiful Day. I stamped it in Archival Black ink. I did use my Stamperatus to make sure that the stamp was dark and fully stamped. I used Thick Whisper White card stock.
With an Aqua Painter, wet the center of the flower. Sprinkle the yellow brusho over this area. I did spread it out to a uniform color with the Aqua Painter. Allow this to dry. Then, blow away the extra crystals over the trash can.
Wet the flower with the Aqua Painter. I did this in two sections. Use the Brillant Red. Again, I spread out the color to be more uniform, but not completely. Allow to dry and blow away the extra crystals.
Repeat the process with the leaf. Use the Moss Green.
When all is dry, cut out the flower. Attach to the card with dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set. It is stamped on a 1/2 inch scrap of Whisper White. Notch the ends. It's on dimensionals, but only snail was used over the flower.
Brusho is a lot of fun. I used it in a more controlled way here. You can rely on the fact that I'll be playing more in the future!
