Welcome friends! Today I am talking about Brusho and I have a video tutorial on how to create this stunning card using these Watercolour Crystals!
You might have heard of the new Brusho Crystal Colour from Stampin’ Up! already, but just in case you haven’t, let me tell you about it! Brusho Crystal Colour is really a unique and highly pigmented watercolour powder and currently Stampin’ Up! offers a set 5 different colours. These include Prussian Blue, Brilliant Red, Gamboge, Moss Green, and Yellow.
The powder can be applied to a variety of mediums including: watercolour, mixing with acrylics, simple sprinkling techniques and even wood staining! But for the purpose of this post, I did some good ole’ fashioned watercolour painting.
Before you get started, be sure to gather some of the additional watercolour painting supplies (as noted in the video below). You’ll also find a full supply list at the bottom of this post:
Two Mason Jars for water
A small bowl or other dish
A Paint Brush
Look how pretty this is! I love it SO much! This would make a perfect birthday or Mother’s Day card too!
But to get the most out of Brusho, I have some tips for you and really think you’ll find them useful. They are:
Brusho is a highly pigmented product, which means it’s really rich in colour and a little goes a long way!
I suggest you do not fully open the Brusho jar, but rather poke a couple of holes in the top with your Paper Piercing Tool (or other). This way you can ‘sprinkle’ on the colour when needed. Think of it as using a salt shaker!
You don’t always need to add water to your paper first, simply sprinkle and spritz! Sprinkle your Brusho colours directly on your Watercolour Paper and then spritz with your Stampin’ Spritzer! You can then blend with your paint brush or leave it as-is for a crystalized effect.
Watercolour Paper is optimal when using Brusho, but if you don’t have that on hand, use heavy cardstock.
It’s messy and spontaneous, and FUN!

Hello friends! I’m in the midst of an unexpected two weeks off at my day job, so that means I’ve been spending more time in the craft room – and I’m loving it! To be honest though, I’ve needed a bit of a mental break and am getting some much needed rest and time to really just do nothing. It’s been good for me and a much needed break for sure.
But let’s get on with today’s card because I am in LOVE! It features the new Perennial Birthdays Stamp Set from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. I can already tell that this set is going to get a lot of use; not just for birthday cards, but I foresee all sorts of occasions being used with this fun floral set.
I stamped this card using the masking technique and did some watercoloring with our Aqua Painters. I used a Berry Burst for the card based, and then Berry Burst, Pool Party, and Cucumber Crush Ink for the stamped images. If you don’t happen to have Cucumber Crush Ink, Wild Wasabi is an excellent substitute!
It really turned out lovely, don’t you think?
