Technique Tuesday – Brusho Crystal Colour!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! I’m showing you the NEW Brusho Crystal Colour from the Occasions Mini Catalog!

Brusho Crystal Colour,

I love the bright vibrant color that this stuff creates! Look at that stunning butterfly!!! Gorgeous!

I have found that Watercolor Paper works best with the Brusho Crystal Colour since it requires a decent amount of water to dissolve it! First, I stamped the butterfly from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and added Gold Embossing Powder! I set it with the heat tool! Now for the coloring fun, I used the Aqua Painter to wet the area of the butterfly. Using the Red (Brilliant Red), Orange (Gamboge), and Yellow colors, I tapped some onto the butterfly. With yellow on the outside, then orange, and red in the middle. The thing about tapping it on is that you don’t really know where it is going to fall or how much. This is one of those techniques that no two are going to come out the same!

Beautiful Butterfly,

After tapping the powder on, I used the Aqua Painter to blend it all together. I did wipe off the brush tip after each color to try to keep a nice fade and not just blend them all together! Be sure to allow it to dry before assembling the card. When I don’t have a lot of patience, I used the Heat Tool!

Golden Butterfly,

Next, I layered the butterfly onto Pumpkin Pie (4″ x 3-1/4″) and then Real Red (4-1/4″ x 3-3/4″) cardstock! The Real Red was cut with more on the bottom so I could add the Double Stitched Daffodil Delight Ribbon! Before adding this to the Whisper White card base, I stamped the dots from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set all around in Daffodil Delight Ink! Of course, I added the butterfly layers to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of texture!

  1. This is gorgeous! I think my husband would lose it if I started buying all of these tools to add to my craft room but I am seriously looking into making our own cards because store bought are so impersonal and expensive! Thanks for sharing!

    • Just start off small, he won’t notice! 🙂 I agree, store bought cards are crazy expensive. If you need any tips for getting started small, just reach out! Always happy to help! ~Laura
