I was quite happy to find a set of Brushos recently and bought them as a Christmas gift to myself. These crystal inks are produced in the UK, not stocked anywhere in Canada (that I could find) and sell out quickly overseas. They create the most wonderful vivid colours using such a tiny little amount of the powders sprayed or mixed with water. I love to use water based paints, inks & sprays so these are 'right up my alley'.
I used stamps by Designs by Ryn for both of these cards. The sentiments are from Chocolate Baroque's Amazing Birthday set.
One of my talented teammates Eileen Godwin has produced four fantastic video tutorials featuring different techniques using Brushos. I used her tutorial Brushos - Part One as a guide for the background above but I didn't use "goosebumps" as I don't have them, I've never seen them here.
I painted Day Lily and Rising Bubbles using the paints on my craft mat with a little water and also directly on the flower.
A different technique was used for the background below:
A fun technique using Glimmer Mists, Brushos and plastic wrap which Eileen shows at her tutorial Brushos - Part Two was used for the background above. I also painted Raindrop set and Flying Hummingbird 2 with the Brushos.
Thanks for your visit and have a great day,
