Brushos ® are making a debut in our Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog and make creating backgrounds so much fun! I knew I had to share a fun background with you for our S.B.T.D. Blog Hop theme this month.
They are concentrated watercolor ink crystals that burst with color when you add water. They come in a package that includes 5 containers, 1 each of 5 colors: Brilliant Red, Gamboge (orange), Moss Green, Prussian Blue, Yellow . Each container contains 0.5 oz. (14 g) of colored crystals.
Now that you know what Brushos® are, let’s see what I have created for you!
I love the look that was achieved by using the Yellow, Gambroge, Brilliant Red Brushos® with Glossy White Cardstock and shelf paper to achieve the look. I sprinkled the Brushos® onto the glossy cardstock and then spritzed them with water using our Stampin’ Spritzers. I let the colors meld a little and then laid the shelf liner on top and let it set on there for about a minute. I loved the texture that was achieved. Here’s a closer look at the background:
Next I embossed the images using Black Embossing Powder. The bird was embossed onto Whisper White Cardstock and then colored with an Aqua Painter and Berry Burst ink. I used Stampin’ Dimansionals to adhere the bird to the card and then layered the Glossy White onto Basic Black and then onto a Berry Burst card base.
We played with backgrounds using this same technique in my Brushos® class tonight. You will want to be sure to come back on Monday when I will share what my students achieved with their take on this background using Brushos®!
