Hello. Gail here today. When I first started using Brusho powders I did the spritz, sprinkle, spritz method of application. Recently I have begun to investigate using them as watercolours, which was the original intent of their design. I love the range and intensity of the colours, and also that adding more water dilutes the colour making them even more versatile. Here's what I made today.
I used a Blue Knight stamp called Lovable Panda and Brusho's.
Stamping on grey woodgrain card and I lined up the tree in the image with the woodgrain pattern. Then when I straightened the paper I thought it was quite cool with the diamond shape and the panda sliding down the tree. I added a sprinkle of Black Brusho powder to a bit of water and coloured the panda.
I added a sprinkle of Leaf Green and Light Brown Brusho to water, not together obviously, and coloured the leaves and tree.
I added more water to the Leaf Green mix and diluted it so I could do a pale background wash. I like how this can stretch the colour palette simply by altering how much water you use.
I masked off the image and wet the corners with water, sprinkled Emerald Green Brusho and spritzed with water.
My sprinkle spritzing had got a bit excessive making the back of the card a bit messy so I cut off the front panel, added a dark green mat and mounted on a silver base card.
Hope you have enjoyed my project today. Thanks for dropping by. Hugz
