Brushos Background Cards


We've had such a lot of fun in card class last month using Brushos watercolour ink crystals and a water spritzer to make gorgeous backgrounds.  Every one turned out differently. 

This technique is so easy.  Just emboss your image onto watercolour card - I used Dandelion Wishes stamp set and white embossing powder.  Then sprinkle some of the Brushos crystals - there are 5 colours in the pack.  Last you spritz some water. 

You can wet the paper first then sprinkle but I love the element of surprise you get when you spritz last.  Add just a little water for a more speckled look, or spray away and get more of a watercoloured look.  SUCH a lot of fun to experiment with.  These were my two favourites from my batch. 


Add some Brushos and watercolour paper to your next order if you'd love to have some creative colourful fun.  Don't forget to protect your surfaces to prevent staining.  Great way to use some of that brown packing paper that comes in our boxes!  Another tip - don't open the lids. Just pierce them with a pin.  I leave the pin in when I'm not using them or you can seal them with some washi tape. 

Have a colourful weekend!

Cheers, Sue

These cards are awesome! Seeing them on FB inspired me to get out my Brushos to make Rob's Father's Day card. They make such a cool background with so little effort.
