Creating movement with Brusho’s

Hello there! I hope you’re having a great week. I recently got back from a long weekend in Edinburgh visiting the Edinburgh Fringe festival. It is great to see others being creative and using their talents, there are some funny and talented people out there. If you ever get the chance, you should definitely visit! Today’s card us I used Brusho’s to create movement. Brusho’s are a pigmented watercolour powder, and you can either completely saturate the powder for a soft watercolour wash or sprinkle the powder over wet paper for creating movement. 

In this card, I used both techniques and one thing I particularly love about Brusho’s is that you can get a variety of colour with one powder. Each colour powder is made up to a variety other colour pigment granules. If you mix the powder with water, you will get the desired colour of the powder. However, when you spritz water over the powder, or drop the powder into water, you will see a variety of colours. The more the colours mix, the stronger the ultimate colour will be.

For links to some of these products, see the end of the post.

creating movement with Brusho's process overview:

This card creates a 8X 4.25 inche card. Trim down a piece of white to 8 X 3.75 inches and spray with water. Add in drops of Brusho powder in the colours of your choosing. Spray with more water until the colours soften and mix. Dry this with a heat gun and add another layer if you wish. This will create the background soft Brusho watercolour wash.

To create movement with the Brusho, lightly spray (and I mean lightly!) the panel again with water. Again, drop a few bits of powder in a couple of places watching the pigment powders burst out as it hits the water. Do not add any more water – allow this to dey.

To finish the card, foam mount the panel onto the card base. Die cut a sentiment out of white card several times and a layer on top of one another. Next cover this with several layers out embossing powder for a smooth look – I used the Pink Champagne from Brutus Monroe. 

Add a white rectangle frame (Altenew) around the sentiment to focus the eye. For a little more sparkle, cover the frame with Wink of Stella. Next, add a secondary heat embossed sentiment. Lastly, embellish with a few Jewels from Lucy’s Cards.

Mixed media Christmas card

I had a real urge to create a mixed media card today, and I wanted to do this with a Christmas card. It isn’t necessarily a traditional style Christmas card, more of a subtle nod to Christmas, other than the obvious sentiment on the front.
