Brusho 5 Brusho Colors and how to use them – and a Give-away!

Thank you to Colourcraft for sending me this giant pack of Brusho so I could show you what they are all about!   In the video tutorial, I wanted to show you how to use the powders and how I made the color swatches.

I ended up getting a bit carried away shaking, and spritzing and stamping and ended up with NINE different cards!

They all used the same technique piece, but were finished off in slightly different ways.

So what is BRUSHO, anyways?  I checked on the Ellen Hutson website and this is what it says:

Brusho Crystal Colours Watercolors are amazingly versatile watercolor powders! The highly concentrated transparent dye crystals react with water to create magic for beautiful and varied watercolor techniques. They can also be mixed with various mediums like paints & pastes, or dissolved in water & used in a spray bottle. They can be used on paper, canvas or wood. Wear gloves to protect skin from staining.

  • transparent & highly pigmented color
  • 15 gram container
  • non-toxic
  • available in 32 colors


I haven’t made sprays or mixed them with paints & pastes…YET!   Sounds like a whole bunch of fun to me!

You can see more about Colourcraft, the products they sell and even order straight from the company here.

Ok, so let’s take a peek at them up close and personal!

The first two cards are made from 5-1/2 x 4″ watercolor card stock with a small piece of black and white patterned paper to accent it.


This layout is darling as it is, but you might want to add a cut out flower to it to dress it up just a bit!

Brusho 4

The purple and yellow cards are made from 5 x 3-3/4″ watercolor cardstock with a 5-1/4 x 4″ black mat.  Tie some twine or add a flower – or do both!  Add sequins if you wish.

Brusho 3

Add a dash border with a Micron Pen around the edge or just dress up with sequins (or both!).

The yellow card is made from a 5-1/4 x 4″ piece of watercolor cardstock and has a 5-3/8 x 4-1/8″ black mat.

Brusho 2

Want to take this technique piece even further?  Make a Shaker Card!

Brusho 6

Cut out a piece of patterned paper with rectangle dies to make a frame, adhere a piece of plastic sheet, add dimensional adhesive and fill with sequins!

My favorite card were the ones that you added the flowers to and I think I like adding the color then adding the water, I think the results are fantastic when done that way! I want to win, I love to make cards for my friends and family and this would add a new dimension to the cards I make. Thanks Catherine

  • Louise Rolph August 27, 2015, 8:53 pm

    Hi Catherine. Thanks for showing these fun powders. I love all the cards you made but the ones with the black and white stripe I like the best. It seems you can never go wrong with black and white stripes. The colours of these powders are amazing. It seems they would last for ages because you only use a small amount? Thanks again for sharing with us. Have a fun day.

  • Urana Stanley August 27, 2015, 8:53 pm

    I love the 2nd technique and the shaker card.

  • Arlene D August 27, 2015, 8:53 pm

    I like the blue and green combination best since that’s in my favorite color range. I like the technique of sprinkling the Brushos on and then spritzing with water to see all those little specks of color before they blend and run together. I think Brushos would be FUN to play with!

  • Veronika Trewin August 27, 2015, 8:55 pm

    These are so pretty. Love the shaker card. You make this technique look so easy.

  • Michele Lantz August 27, 2015, 9:21 pm

    I have to say you have really inspired me to “play” again! I have alot of stamps and supplies, but have seemed to have lost the excitement of it over the last year :( I find myself procrastinating until the very last minute to make a card for a gift or birthday etc. Your blogs and videos have really drawn me back to the love of being creative! You make it look so easy…and fun :) I LOVE these new Brusho powders…especially when you sprinkle first and spritz after then let the water run around a bit…and of course I’m partial to the pink card most. Thank you for sharing your tips, techniques, and creative ideas!
    I can’t wait to see more!

  • Mayela Lameda-Lyver August 27, 2015, 9:22 pm

  • Rita August 27, 2015, 10:35 pm

    Thank you for sharing Catherine and for the opportunity to enter the giveaway for these great products. I like the dry powder and then spray. I don’t have a favorite card, each technique is fun and interesting. I always look forward to your newest videos on youtube. God bless you…

  • Joy August 27, 2015, 11:45 pm

    This was a great video. You made this look like fun and you quickly made some beautiful cards!

  • Maggie B August 27, 2015, 11:47 pm

    Hi Catherine ~ You were right when you mentioned on IG that these were similar to the Color Burst powders and I’m so glad I watched the video. I particularly liked the “Sprinkle then Spray” technique, which enabled the colors to dance around the paper a bit more enticingly. I’m a sucker for shaker cards, so that one is my favorite but I also really like the resist effect. These powders would be so much fun to play with. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with the rest of us paper crafting addicts!!!

  • Debbie eslinger August 27, 2015, 11:49 pm

    love watching your videos I just wish that they were longer so I could enjoy you and your thought process longer. I like them all, but if I had to pick I would take the monochrome. I would love to win these because that is the only way I will ever get them into my hands!

  • Linda Gorman August 27, 2015, 11:51 pm

    Great cards and video. Thanks for a chance to win!

  • Therese Arsenault August 27, 2015, 11:51 pm

    Love the spontaneity of watercolor. Never 2 will be the same. These colors are vibrant and fun. Every card is a work of art. I do prefer when you sprinkle the powder on dry paper, then spray with lots of water. It is like watching fireworks. OHHH’s and AHHHH’s at the results. Sure would love to have the opportunity to play with all these fabulous pigments.

  • Rory Sears August 27, 2015, 11:51 pm

    Thank you for sharing this. Love the look of the powder added to the water and that crimson color.

  • Suzanne August 28, 2015, 12:04 am

    I really like the shaker card one the best. I would love to have a set of Brusho’s to play with!! Thanks for the chance to win one!!

  • Jessica Bavier August 28, 2015, 12:06 am

    Love these!! The pink and green combo is my fave! I’ve been wanting to try these since I first saw them in a crafty video. It would be SO awesome to win some! :)

  • Meradah Moore August 28, 2015, 12:11 am

    What a fun product! I can see myself spending hours just playing with it! LOL

  • Aslin August 28, 2015, 12:14 am

    My favorite was the purple and yellow one, with the flower…because purple is my FAVORITE color but ALL of them are just BEAUTIFUL!!! I DESERVE to win because I was left out of the SOA sale (insert crying face here, lol!!) I was kind of ”scared” to try water coloring but you make it seem so easy on this video! ! Thanks!!

  • Kimberly Martin August 28, 2015, 12:16 am

    These are amazing…

  • Connie Layman August 28, 2015, 12:24 am

    I’m ready to jump on the Brusho bandwagon! The shaker card really sold me!
    Thanks Catherine!

  • Maureen Reiss August 28, 2015, 12:30 am

    These look sooooo FUN!! Love your cards!

  • She Richard August 28, 2015, 12:35 am

    I like the shaker card best. I haven’t made one yet. My favorite technique was spraying water AFTER color powder applied. All I have in my stash to color with are some markers from Michael’s and some dew drop inks. I’m so new to this but so excited with each thing I try. Anxiously awaiting on SOA box to really get started. Can’t wait!

  • Michelle Tensen August 28, 2015, 12:41 am

    Beautiful cards! I can’t wait to try them myself. :)

  • Linda August 28, 2015, 12:45 am

    My favorite part of card making is the background. As I was watching your video, I kept thinking how each was different and my new favorite. I liked them all. The Brusho colors are wonderful and love that you can add more water or color if isn’t the look you want. Would love to have some to play with.

  • Flechia August 28, 2015, 12:48 am


  • Elle H August 28, 2015, 12:50 am

    These cards are gorgeous!!!! I simply can’t choose a favorite:). I haven’t taken the Brusho plunge yet but I’ve certa been eyeing them!! LOL

  • Tekedra (Tee) Williams-Jones August 28, 2015, 12:54 am

    L…O…V…E…the shaker card!!! Those colors are blowing my mind! Job Well Done on that one lady! I always say, “I’m going to try something new”…and i rarely do, but this is it! I would love to try this medium. My young children wouldn’t let me at Brusho alone either! Thanks for the great videos, tutorials, and laughs!

  • Shirley August 28, 2015, 1:19 am

    Love it!! Would like to give it a try myself thanks for the great video!!

  • Beau August 28, 2015, 1:19 am

    Oh I love it I love it I love it!!! I soooo want these so here is crossing my fingers, toes, toungue, and whatever else I can cross to hopefully win! Oh and Catherine I wanted to tell you I found a new way to use these pigment powders that I think you will love! I took some of the powder and put it in a mini mister, filled it with water and gave it a really good shake making my own colored sprays. So much fun and it gives you kind of an air brush look to it and it’s so much fun. So I thought I would share that with you and thank you for sharing with us and giving us a wonderful opportunity to win some of these awesome Brushos. It doesn’t seem like they are too different from the Color Burst except for the colors. Did you know they just released another 6 colors of the Color Bursts? Just got mine and I love them!

  • Jackie King August 28, 2015, 1:24 am

    Wow! So simple but so vibrant and I love that each and every piece is unique!

  • Paula August 28, 2015, 1:27 am

    I love both the shaker card and the blue/green card — hard to choose between them! It was amazing to see how many different cards you made. I love your style! Thanks for sharing with all of us and providing us with so much inspiration!

  • Bonnie August 28, 2015, 1:51 am

    Ok, before I watched the video, I thought – how new and fabulous could this be? I mean, powders? Wow, I underestimated how fabulous these powders are! Unlimited possibilities! I love them! Thanks for sharing! I like the shaker card the best too!

  • Ericka Strange August 28, 2015, 1:52 am

    Love the looks of all these cards and it looks like so much fun playing with the brusho watercolors

  • Ericka Strange August 28, 2015, 1:54 am

    I love the technique where you sprinkle on the brusho nod then spray close up. Great job

  • Martha N August 28, 2015, 2:05 am

    I love love love those cards with the fun techniques. Thanks for sharing this amazing product. It looked like you had so much fun getting all inky and colorful! My favorite technique was the second one with pouring the powders first. Thanks so much again!

  • Theresa August 28, 2015, 2:05 am

    These look like so much fun. I am really enjoying playing with the pigment powders. Your cards turned out soooo awesome. I loved the leaf and flower stamp you used.

  • Sofie Henderickx August 28, 2015, 2:06 am

    Hey Catherine. I love the cards you made with the powders. They are sooooo cool! I would love to play with them. Lots of love, Sofie

  • Beth Vallone August 28, 2015, 2:09 am

    Thanks for sharing! Love these! Just when I thought “Oh I love this card best, then you did the next and that was my favorite! Def putting Brusho on my must have list!

  • Laura Rozsonits August 28, 2015, 2:16 am

    What an awesome product! I usually don’t like watercolor projects but the colors were very eye catching. Loved the look.

  • Charne August 28, 2015, 2:34 am

    I really like the shaker…but the alirizan crimson & ochre one is pretty great too. I’d love those Bruscho powders as I love the happy accidents they create! Most enjoyable video! TY!

  • Darlene Iglehart August 28, 2015, 2:50 am

    This product looks like it would be way too messy and fun. Right up my alley! I think I liked the monochromatic one best. Loved the excitement in your voice in the video.

  • hope williams August 28, 2015, 2:57 am

    I love all the cards especially the shaker card. I like the way you put the powder down first and then sprayed it. I love all your videos. I got a friend onto your videos.

  • Jannette D. August 28, 2015, 3:04 am

    All those cards turned out great. That would make a great gift to give someone. I see some Brusho’s going onto my Christmas List already.

  • Jacky Williams August 28, 2015, 3:27 am

    I so love all the cards, brushos are one of my favourite things – such fun to use as never quite sure how they will turn out!! I love way some of the colours explode into lots of different colours. My favourite card is the Orange/pink one, I think x

  • Jennifer August 28, 2015, 3:47 am

    I love the cards you made with the brusho. I can’t wait to get some and play with them.. I love watching your videos I have learned a lot from then.

  • Ashlyn August 28, 2015, 4:04 am

    Oh, I love the yellow card. I usually gravitate toward greens and blues, but this yellow card really caught my eye. I would love to try the Brushos because the backgrounds you’ve created are so unique. I can’t imagine my cards looking that good.

  • Jessica Golling August 28, 2015, 4:33 am

    I am soooooo in love with the Brusho powders!!!!! I could in no way pick a favorite card! You did such an amazing job explaining how to use them. I hope I win so I can try to make some cards of my own !

  • Noaleen August 28, 2015, 4:36 am

    Hi Catherine,
    I would LOVE to try some of the techniques that you have demonstrated
    Love all the cards

  • Bev Karolak August 28, 2015, 4:38 am

    Awesome cards! Love these products! Thanks for sharing your video. :)

  • Joyce Spear August 28, 2015, 4:41 am

    Whoaa! You totally rocked this post and video today! My plan for the weekend was to nose around and see what I could find out about Brushos, so you must have read my mind. I’m totally impressed with their range of colors and I see some in my future! Your color chart is helpful in that it showed me there are flecks of other colors in each pot, which is what turned me on most about the Ken Oliver product. Love the powder first, then spritz most, although all the techniques you showed are great. Favorite card? Toss-up between the blue with the added flower and your shaker card. P.S. September 1st is my birthday, so wouldn’t it be cool if random turned out to be me?

  • Amanda August 28, 2015, 5:13 am

    Love the powder! Your cards were beautiful. Thanks for the technique ideas!!!

  • Sheena LeFew August 28, 2015, 5:21 am

    Oh My Greatness!. I would stand on my hands for this set of Brusho!!!!!

  • Karen Pang August 28, 2015, 5:35 am

    I like th purple card the best because purple is my favorite color. I would like to win because I have never used these before!

  • Maureen August 28, 2015, 5:36 am

    i have been drooling over these for months! Wondering if I would ever be brave enough to use them. Your cards are fantastic and maybe I am braver than I think.

  • Dawn August 28, 2015, 5:50 am

    Hi Katherine,..
    Just love your tutorials with the brusho’s…I think the shaker card is my favourite one,but so hard to choose…I just love the randomness of the brusho’s..
    Congrats to whoever wins the brusho pack.
    Dawn from the UK

  • E. Nadler August 28, 2015, 5:54 am

    This is a technique I haven’t tried yet. All the cards intrigued me.

  • Shirley Toyama August 28, 2015, 6:07 am

    Love all the different color combos. It looks like so much fun. Thanks.

  • Carolyn August 28, 2015, 6:07 am

    I love the red and yellow with the strip of black. I think the best technique was when you sprinkled and then sprayed from close up. I want to win cause dang it I never do :)

  • Jane August 28, 2015, 6:28 am

    All the cards look great and I really can’t pick a favorite. I like the technique where you put down the powder first and then spritz it. The effect it create looks so cool :-) tfs, hugs Jane

  • Irene August 28, 2015, 6:30 am

    loved the video here in the UK

  • Barbie August 28, 2015, 6:38 am

    Looks like a lot of fun!

  • Laura August 28, 2015, 6:44 am

    Such a great shaker card!

  • Tamara August 28, 2015, 6:59 am

    WoW! I cannot decide between these cards, they are all stunning! I really like the result you get with Brusho. Sadly they don’t sell it in my country (Slovenia). I would love to give them a try. Thanks for the giveaway :* Tamara :*

  • Dennie August 28, 2015, 7:02 am

    What an interesting medium! I love the surprise element the base for these cards provide to get ones creative juices flowing.

  • Penny H August 28, 2015, 7:06 am

    I do love that these have different colour pigments in each one rather than simply flat colours. I prefer the sprinke first on dry paper then spritz method, very pretty!

  • Ellen A August 28, 2015, 7:38 am

    It’s impossible to pick one card as a favourite. I luv them all. I like the technique of shake then spritz the best but would try them all. Thank you so much for the exposure to Brusho Crystal Colors.

  • Lisa K August 28, 2015, 7:44 am

    I liked the versatility you showed with the Brushos. I probably can’t select a favorite, but I like the ones with the popped up embossed flowers well. The teachers will love these cards when they receive them. I guess winning this set would be a way to add a bit of fun to watercolor. I do not watercolor much, but these look fun.

  • Tanya Cook August 28, 2015, 7:47 am

    These are so fun. I like that they have a wide range of colors to choose from. How fun it would be to play with them. The cards are beautiful.

  • Janice Hilton August 28, 2015, 7:58 am

    Wow!! What a gorgeous product and the results are stunning. This is an alternative to watercolour I think. Fabulous and thanks for introducing this product. I wouldn’t have known about it otherwise. :-)

  • Claudia Henderson August 28, 2015, 8:03 am

    Colorful, vibrant and so much fun. Love the backgrounds you create, especially the blue/turquoise combo. So far I played with watercolor pencils, markers and paint, but the powder will be next on my list….love the powder first, water spray next technique. Keep them coming. Thanks for introducing them to us…

  • Catherine August 28, 2015, 8:07 am

    Thank you for sharing, Hope!

  • Janet August 28, 2015, 8:08 am

    These look amazing. I love the shaker card best.

  • Carla joudrey August 28, 2015, 8:20 am

    Love the ease of the brusho.

  • Stella Moore August 28, 2015, 8:30 am

    Beautiful! I totally enjoyed the video. Thank you for sharing!

  • jeni machon August 28, 2015, 8:42 am

    I really love the first card you made in the video. The crimson pink ones are my favourite.

  • Donna McCain August 28, 2015, 8:58 am

    Amazing and vibrant colors, with only a little power! You make it look so easy , each card is so different, thank you!!

  • Bridget Willis August 28, 2015, 9:00 am

    I love the shaker card the most. I can’t wait to try this water technique. It looks like a lot of fun. I haven’t used water colors that much so this will be great to learn. Thanks for sharing and thank you for the giveaway. Good luck to everyone.

  • Helen Wainwright August 28, 2015, 9:09 am

    I love all of the results from the different colors, but my favorite is the yellow card. It is so mellow. Beautiful job!!!!!!

  • Carolyn S August 28, 2015, 9:16 am

    Oh my goodness these are so gorgeous. Picking a favorite is like selecting a favorite cupcake flavor – they are ALL amazing!! But since I have to choose, I like the red and yellowish one with the faux stitching. I just love how the colors melted. Thanks for the chance to win. Keeping my fingers crossed

  • Judith Sigler August 28, 2015, 9:18 am

    Oh, Catherine! SUCH FUN with the Colourcraft Brusho Powders!! LOVE the versatility and “THE SURPRISE” that appears. It can be brilliant, or soft and gentle!! REALLY hard to “pick” just one as a favorite, tho’!! I can see so many uses from the “shaker” cards to the simplicity of A2 cards. I think pairing colours with DSP or even Washi Tapes would be fun to try as well!! AHA!! INSPIRATION AGAIN!! Thank you so much for sharing this new product with your fans! Thanks to COLOURCRAFT, too, for sharing with you! HAPPY EXPERIMENTING!!

  • Susan P August 28, 2015, 9:32 am

    Love all the cards. It would be wonderful to try the Brusho colours.

  • Roberta Eldridge August 28, 2015, 9:37 am

    I love the brushos effect on paper! So pretty and vibrant. It is always a wonderful surprise each time you use them! Love your creative cards, Catherine! I want to tell you which is my favorite but they all are my favorite!!!

  • Karen Robertson August 28, 2015, 9:38 am

    Your cards are lovely! I love the look of this technique. Thanks for the opportunity to win some of this product.

  • Cheryl Bennett August 28, 2015, 9:42 am

    I like the more vibrant look – my favorite is the blue one on the right. I like putting the powder down first and then misting. Thanks for sharing these techniques!

  • Mary W August 28, 2015, 9:44 am

    My favorite is the most simple but your mix of cards was amazing. In no time at all you had a handful of gorgeous cards! What a wonderful set to have on hand. The Brusho pigments are so beautiful I can’t wait to try using them as they have so many ways! Thanks for demo on some of those techniques AND a chance to win.

  • Marcia Hill August 28, 2015, 9:47 am

    Great and informative video Catherine! I thought I loved the blue and green card best when you first added the color and then sprayed the water, but after seeing them all finished, there’s no way to pick a favorite…I love them all!! I ordered the blue and purple to try them out just now, but would love a chance to win the little set you’re giving away…thanks so much for the opportunity to win and again for the great video!! :0)

  • Diane Zalusky August 28, 2015, 9:50 am

    My favourite card is the shaker, and the technique I prefer is the dry shake spritzed with water. I would love to add this water color effect to my card making.

  • Shelley G. August 28, 2015, 9:55 am

    I am dying for the brusho watercolors! I particularly like your cards with the flower cut outs, and putting down the powder then spraying over them. So much fun!

  • Kim S August 28, 2015, 10:07 am

    I’m excited to try Brushos. I have used Bisters and Color Bursts and love them! Brushos appear to have more color choices! Wish they were readily available in the states in our craft stores.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Wendy Goundrey August 28, 2015, 10:24 am

    You made such fabulous cards from this fun product. I would love to give your techniques a try!

  • Charlene August 28, 2015, 10:51 am

    I’d love to win this color kit! Thanks for the opportunity and for this video!

  • Marianne August 28, 2015, 10:53 am

    Such a fun product. Love all your backgrounds. Love how you faded the colour by dabbing off the colour. My favourites are the monochromatic yellow card and your shaker. I already ordered a set of 12 from the UK, but I would love to win these additional colours. BTW, did you know Sandy Allnock also did a few videos on Brushos. She also had a tip for adding coloured labels to the tops of the pots.

  • Lane Lent August 28, 2015, 10:55 am

    I LOVE the shaker card. Thanks for the chance to win this prize.

  • Kathleen Philips August 28, 2015, 11:10 am

    Love your videos. Love this technique! You always make it look easy! Love to win some of these colors!

  • Jody V August 28, 2015, 11:17 am

    I like the dry background, sprinkle the powder then mist it. So cool. I want to win because I love the watercolour look and haven’t used powders yet to create it. Thanks.

  • Jenifer Vine August 28, 2015, 11:25 am

    Those are So beautiful!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Melanie August 28, 2015, 11:38 am

    What a fun new product. I would love to play with this and share with my stamping friends. Always fun to get a group together to get inspire creativity.

  • Nancy Carroll August 28, 2015, 12:15 pm

    Loved your demo of the Brusho’s. Would certainly love to win a set. Always look forward to your videos !

  • lisa808 August 28, 2015, 12:24 pm

    I like the card with the purple flower on the bottom left best (just because purple is my favorite color!). I would love to win these powders and have fun creating with something new.

  • Janet August 28, 2015, 12:43 pm

    Love watching your video, this looks like a great product!

  • Sandra Johnston August 28, 2015, 12:49 pm

    Catherine, I love all of the cards but my 2 favorites are the monochromatic card and the shaker card. I think the Brusho powders are a great option for creating watercolor cards or other projects. The fact that you can reactivate your the paint means that you can actually save even your mistakes. I love that since a number of my mistakes have ended up in the trash. Thank you for introducing us to this product.

  • Lisa Harrolle August 28, 2015, 1:11 pm

    Very cool cards Catherine. These Brusho colors are so vibrant. I especially love your shaker card.

  • Brandi R August 28, 2015, 1:21 pm

    Wow….LOVE the shaker! These are AMAZING watercolors! Love the whole concept and how vibrant they are. They are definitely on my must have list!!! ♥♥

  • Linda Beaulieu August 28, 2015, 1:24 pm

    I love this technique of shaking the powder and how sometimes you get 2 colours. So cool.

  • Cheryl Simmons August 28, 2015, 1:32 pm

    Love this…. I really want to try these. Love Love LOVE your videos. These Brusho cards are awesome.

  • Margaret wolf August 28, 2015, 1:32 pm

    First, I love how your top matched the cards you made with the brusho and water. Did you plan that? Secondly, what a bunch of great cards! You finished them off so quickly and they were all different. Oh the ideas….. LOVE!!

  • Faye M August 28, 2015, 1:39 pm

    I love the Brusho powders! So versatile. All the cards were awesome but my favorite was the shaker card.

  • Melissa Flieg August 28, 2015, 1:57 pm

    Love the cards and the Brusho Crystals looks so fun to work with.

  • Kathy August 28, 2015, 1:59 pm

    Oh my gosh!!!!! This product is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Your cards are fabulous, aren’t they!!! I like the colors are not flat, they are multiple colors… it ! Love it! Love it!

  • Tami Tolliver August 28, 2015, 2:15 pm

    I like the pink and orange card. I like the color blends. I think I would like these because I could mix with embossing paste to use with stencils.

  • Mary Lee August 28, 2015, 2:20 pm

    I love this product from the first time I saw you use it. I hope to get it as soon as possible.

    Water color is one of my most favorite techniques. Great job!!

  • Colleen F August 28, 2015, 2:42 pm

    Loving everything I see about this awesome product. Love what you did with it and your cards are stunning!

  • Katharine August 28, 2015, 3:01 pm

    These powders are definitely on my ‘need to have’ list. Especially like the Turquoise Blue cards and the Shaker card. Love all your videos.

  • Becky August 28, 2015, 3:16 pm

    These are beautiful! I like the results from sprinkling the powder first, then adding the water. Other than the number of colors available, how do you feel these compare with the ColorBurst powders?

  • adi harel blorian August 28, 2015, 3:35 pm

    Hi Catherine,
    i just love watching your videos- it seems like we’re having a private lesson, so natural and fun!
    the ones i liked best are the blue cards- the effect of sprinkling the powder first is beautiful!
    thank you for being such an amazing inspiration!

  • Marcie jJohnson August 28, 2015, 3:39 pm

    Love the color and simplicity!

  • Danielle Near August 28, 2015, 3:54 pm

  • Val Peacock August 28, 2015, 4:37 pm

    That looks like a load of fun as do all your tutorials, I like the shaker card best.
    All the others are great also.

  • stephanie August 28, 2015, 4:45 pm

    Looks like FUN!!!!

  • Charity Chamberlain August 28, 2015, 5:04 pm

    I LOVE these! It think it’s so cool how you even get specks of another color sometimes. I also like that you can go back and add more water even after they have dried to reactivate the color. My favorite color in the collection you showcased has to be the violet. It’s gorgeous even in just the color chart you created. Your cards are all so beautiful but I have to say the purple and yellow combination is amazing together! Thank you so much for the chance to win this fantastic product!

  • Marie K August 28, 2015, 5:16 pm

    They look like FUN!

  • Linda S. August 28, 2015, 5:21 pm

    Oh my so hard to make a choice. I love all of them.

  • Rhonda Miller August 28, 2015, 5:26 pm

    These look like so much fun. I’ve been wanting to try some water color backgrounds and these look like they’d make that so easy. I like the two cards above the shaker card.

  • Kristina CraftyPaws August 28, 2015, 5:35 pm

    Omgee this Brush powder crystal water coloring is so cool! Each piece is unique and it looks like so much fun! TFS and a chance to win! Hugs Kristina

  • E. Marie August 28, 2015, 5:48 pm

    Loved your video. I really like where you sprinkle on the powder and then spray. However, I did really like how the yellow card came out that you painted with the brush and then sprayed it a bit after it dried. I would love to have some of these to play with. Thanks for the video and a chance to win.

  • Sherry in MI August 28, 2015, 5:53 pm

    Love your Brusho cards. All the beauty of watercolor and hardly any of the work. You make it look so easy. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Christy Necaise August 28, 2015, 6:11 pm

    Hi Catherine!
    I have wanted to try Brusho for a while now. I have seen it used once before in an art class that I am taking online and I have wanted some since then. I love how you used it in your shaker card. I love shaker cards! Interactive cards are the best! I love it that ColourCraft sent you some to give away. I hope I win! Thanks so much! <3

  • Sandi August 28, 2015, 6:18 pm

    Such beautiful colors. Thank you for all your hard work and sharing new ideas and products. Unfortunately want them all. Need another job.

  • Cole Crawford August 28, 2015, 6:28 pm

    ohhhh the possibilities!!

  • Beverly kenney August 28, 2015, 6:34 pm

    I love the watercolor background that you achieved. I would love to try them also.
    Thanks for sharing your talent.on all your videos.

  • Carole Huxel August 28, 2015, 7:11 pm

    Very interesting product, you’ve convinced me to try them. But the best part was seeing the terrific finished cards. Great job!

  • Gayla g August 28, 2015, 7:39 pm

    I love the look of these Brusho watercolors. I can hardly wait to try them!

  • Farida August 28, 2015, 7:39 pm

    I love the second card done with the embossed stamp image and then adding the blue and green Brusho. These colors are so amazing. Brusho is a fabulous and easy way to get the watercolor painting look…loooove Brusho for its ease of use. So many looks to create.

  • Monica Maier August 28, 2015, 7:41 pm

    Love the multiple color powders in each for multi tone. As for techniques… I love to see the powder sprinkled on and then spritz with water, it’s almost like fireworks on paper and looks so fun and pretty!!!

  • Bea Connor August 28, 2015, 8:17 pm

    All are nice but prefer the orchid and yellow.

  • Jane M August 28, 2015, 8:29 pm

    Brushos! What a fun product! I like all your cards. Thank you for taking the time to do a video showing the various ways to use Brushos. I think I like the “sprinkle and spray” method best. Thanks for giving us a chance to win!

  • Karen August 28, 2015, 8:54 pm

    Hi Catherine. Great ideas…as always. I love the looks you’re getting with these Brushos. Especially the soft watercolour look whilst still keeping all that vibrancy in the colours. Definitely like the close up spray technique the best. I noticed how little powder you needed for it to explode across the card. Awesome. Do they shimmer too?

    It’s hard to choose a favourite from the gorgeous cards you made. But if my back was up against the wall I think I’d pick the blue and green one with the blue flower.

    As always, thanks for the inspiration.


  • Alva Branson August 28, 2015, 9:12 pm

    I love your cards, they are all my favorites :} Would love to get some of these to play with. Thanks for sharing.

  • Fran W. August 28, 2015, 9:15 pm

    Fantabulous set of cards Catherine, and i can see that you enjoyed getting inky. These look like so much fun, and a somewhat softer look than the Color Burst brand. I’d love to win them!
    This was a great video!

  • Noreen August 28, 2015, 9:44 pm

    Loved them all. I think the shaker card is my fav. Would love to have the Chen e to play!

  • Mona Porter August 28, 2015, 9:57 pm

    I love the monochromatic card. There’s something about the warm color that flows around the card that I just love. Can’t wait to try something similar. Thanks for showing us how you finish off the cards, too. Sometlmes, I make a watercolor panel and can’t figure out how to finish it!

  • Teresa Hampton August 28, 2015, 10:06 pm

    Man, I really really love these cards.These are totally on my wish list now. LOL
    I say all of my crafting friends and acquantenances are my “enablers”. I watch your videos and want everything you have LOL…. Thank you so much for your time and my goodness your talent is unending!
    Thank you!

  • Lora Hill August 28, 2015, 10:16 pm

    I LOVE this! And I would LOVE to be the proud owner of a set (wink, wink).

  • Jayde Cropper August 28, 2015, 10:40 pm

    Omg I love all of your cards but I love the blue and green (mainly because blue is my favourite colour) and I love that there are lots of different colours in one tub to make the “final” colour, when I was using my friends brushos I ended up making a whole background from one colour (and if memory serves me right I think I was the black colour)

  • Debbie Cain August 28, 2015, 10:56 pm

    love love love the cards you made……would love to try the Brusho product…..thanks for a chance to win!!!!!

  • r August 28, 2015, 11:15 pm

    Catherine, I like all them! The shaker card at the end was neat, because hey, shaker, sequins, watercolor…how can you not like it?! You looked like you were having a really good time playing with the Brusho’s!
    Thanks for the chance

  • Rufus August 28, 2015, 11:18 pm

    Don’t know why it ate my name in my comment! But wanted to let you know who r is!

  • Anne Dupre August 28, 2015, 11:22 pm

    Wow love the colors great cards

  • Janet Gray August 29, 2015, 12:44 am

    Ooh! I’m so excited!! I love the cards, my favorite is the blue card with the blue flower – so beautiful! Your video is so inspiring! Prussian blue is my favorite color, I can’t wait to get this product (of course I have to wait, being a senior with a strict budget – just so I can eat AND craft). I love the dress you were wearing in the video – all those blues! Thanks for introducing such a great product.

  • Laura August 29, 2015, 1:09 am

    These look great! I think I’ll be getting some.

  • Laura August 29, 2015, 1:11 am

    What an interesting product. I can’t wait to try them.

  • Elizabeth Lumsden August 29, 2015, 1:34 am

    All your cards turned out wonderful! My fave are the shaker card and the purple and yellow card with the flower on the lower left. I like what happens when you sprinkle the powder and then hit with the mister….magic!

  • g August 29, 2015, 2:00 am

    Im generally a jump up and down kind of person, but this did it for me. The product looks amazing, and your cards are beautiful!

  • Amanda August 29, 2015, 2:14 am

    Love all the cards but I adore the yellow n purple one just because I love the colors. All beautiful. I need to get these so I can play brushy queen.

  • Boryana Emery August 29, 2015, 2:46 am

    I really am inspired by the colors. I think I like it best when you sprinkle the powder first and then spray with water because the colors are more vibrant. But then I also like the subtlety of the more washed-out colors. Hmmm, tough choice. OK, I admit, I like them all!

  • Christina August 29, 2015, 5:09 am

    These are really cool! I heard about them but WOW! Beautiful results! Thank you!

  • Gloria Charter August 29, 2015, 6:26 am

    I really could not choose a favourite card here, I love them all. I do not need more medium, I do not need more medium, I do not need more medium. Oh my gosh I so need these!


  • Marilou August 29, 2015, 7:54 am

    What a fun new way to apply color No two will ever be the same

  • Julie August 29, 2015, 9:01 am

    The shaker card is definitely my favorite. These look like fun water colors.

  • Karen Forbes August 29, 2015, 9:33 am

    Love the tap on brusho onto the cardstock, close up sprizing effect. I like to be surprised on the outcome. Would be great to win the giveaway as the product would not be readily available in Singapore n it would be costly.

  • Brenda in IN August 29, 2015, 9:55 am

    This is a fantastic video giving so much information. WOW, I must get some Brushos. What a gorgeous watercolor look with them. Your cards are just gorgeous. Thank you so much.

  • Jan August 29, 2015, 9:57 am

    Love, love, love this technique and the vibrant Brusho colors!! I bought some Ken Oliver Colorburst powders but haven’t had much chance to experiment with them yet. Thanks for spotlighting the powders!!

  • Samantha August 29, 2015, 10:42 am

    I really like spritzing the paint and seeing all the different colour particles. Really cool.

  • Lucie MJ August 29, 2015, 10:59 am

    Love this. Thank you so much for sharing with your viewers.

  • Jen August 29, 2015, 11:55 am

  • Julie August 29, 2015, 6:07 pm

    OMG! These powders are incredible. I REALLLY REALLLLLY want to get my hands on these. My mind is racing with ideas on how I could use them. I love the card you made with the flower in the corner, but as usual, all of the cards were fantastic. Thanks for introducing these powders to me. I am in love.

  • Flip August 29, 2015, 9:52 pm

    Love this product and LOVE your video showing different ways to use it. I think the “sprinkle and spray” method was my favorite. I like how the colors move with the water. My favorite card is the one with the dashed border on it.

  • Erin M August 29, 2015, 10:07 pm

    I really like both the shaker and the purple and yellow with purple flower. So pretty!

  • Theresa August 29, 2015, 10:27 pm

    I love the way these are versatile! My fav is the sprinkle then spray technique!

  • Allison Grussenmeyer August 30, 2015, 3:13 am

    I agree I liked the sprayed with water technique the best and the black and white border on one side was a very nice touch. Love the look of these cards! Thanks for the chance to win some of these beautiful powders.

  • Lizzie T August 30, 2015, 7:16 am

    I love Brushos! They are so cool and unique! My fav technique is shaking the powder on first and then misting with water – such a pretty effect! All the cards are gorgeous – but that shaker card is so adorable and fun!

  • Bonnie Peters August 30, 2015, 7:58 am

    Love the watercolor look and what an easy technique to achieve this look. Your cards are all lovely but I lean towards green/blue combinations. Thank you for the chance to win some fantastic products.

  • Linda Robison August 30, 2015, 12:11 pm

    well these were interesting – will play if I win ;-)

    Your you tube is very well done and a lot of good information.

  • Siobhan Burtlow August 30, 2015, 2:00 pm

    I am really loving the effects of the Brusho inks. My favorite technique is the one where you sprinkled the powder and then sprayed the water & my favorite card is the shaker one. I can’t wait to try these! Thanks for this chance!

  • Jeri August 30, 2015, 5:53 pm

    Oh how I want to have some of this stuff. I’ve been coveting it every time I see it. Sadly, not in the budget right now, but someday. Thanks for showing the colors. It’s nice to know what they look like.

  • Catherine August 30, 2015, 5:56 pm

  • Anna August 31, 2015, 6:33 am

    Oh my!!! They seem such a fun!!! Sprinkle and spray is my fav technique and definitely blue and green card with die-cut flower…amazingly beautiful!xx

  • Julia Armbrust August 31, 2015, 7:06 am

    I love, love, love these colors! They’re not plain but have diffenrent shades in it. I think the technique I prefer most is the one where you put first the powder on the sheet and sprinkle it with water afterwards. Moving it around creates such beautiful effects:). I would be so happy to try them out!!

  • Karen McAuliffe August 31, 2015, 7:14 am

    What a fantastic product and you show it of so well.
    I am a totally neat freak (touch of OCD my friends tell me) and when I first started watching your video, I thought, NO now way to messy for me, but WOW, the end results are stunning. I could actually see me being able to do this technique.
    Thanks for showing us the Brusho’s

One of these days I’m going to break down and get some. I just love the materials that give those vibrant colors…. Just like the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers!!! Love, playing with those too. I’m really glad I broke down and ordered those.
