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
- 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!
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!
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.
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.
Want to take this technique piece even further? Make a Shaker Card!
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!
The Colors! Check these out…this is most of the colors, but not all.
