Painting with Brusho's

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


  1. Such an adorable image, and how clever to have changed the angle of the branch to make him climbing up the trunk, rather out onto the branch (took me a bit to figure that out!). Great brusho-ing, too!

  2. This is really cute. I like how you turned the stamp differently. Very creative.
