Fun with Brusho – part 2

You never know when a panel of card stock or watercolour paper that has been covered with brusho will turn into a beautiful card. Some months ago I was just playing with Brusho, colouring up some panels of paper with no idea of what they would actually be used for.  They sat around for a while and then I came up with these card designs.

The first card  background is created with the Yellow and Brilliant Red brusho on Shimmer White card stock. The stamp set I used in Rooted in Nature.  I used one of the tree stamps from that set and repeatedly stamped the image in Basic Black ink.  I then masked off the panel to sponge a hillside with black ink.  The edges of the panel were sponged with black ink. The panel is matted with Poppy Parade card stock and mounted on a Basic Black card base.  I used some retired candy dots as embellishments for this card.  I was hoping this card would look like a sunset, but it looks more like a bush fire.

The second card back ground is made with Yellow and Prussian Blue brusho on watercolour card stock.  I used the Waterfront stamp set to create a sea side landscape.  The mountains were stamped in Night of Navy ink, the foreground is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink, and the palm tree were stamped in Basic Black ink.  The edges of the panel were sponged with black ink.  The main panel has been matted with Basic Black card stock and mounted on a Bermuda Bay card base.  I have used retired candy dots again to embellish the card.

I’ve said it before, you never know what you will get when using brusho. No two examples will turn out the same.

Happy stamping
