Happy Wednesday, everyone! This is my first foray into using Brushos! A few months ago I had no clue what they even were, but now SU is selling some so I thought I would give them a try. There is definitely a learning curve and I have found lots of help on the internet, but there are several different ways to use them! So I am in practice mode right now! I am happy that SU has come out with some masculine stamp sets this spring and I thought the guitar from the SAB set Epic Celebration would be perfect to use with the CAS Watercolour Challenge for January, which is Birthday!
I started out with some cheapie watercolor paper, since as I said, I was in "practice" mode, and I was pretty happy with my first one...I made two, they're very similar but of course, with any watercoloring, no two are ever alike! So here we go with the first one:
I stamped my image and sentiment with Versamark and black ink together, then heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder; I used an aquapainter to lay down some water around the images, then sprinkled on blue and yellow Brusho and tilted the paper a bit, "helping" the color spread with my aquapainter. It looks pretty "epic"!! The sentiment was punched out with a circle punch and matted with Basic Black cardstock diecut with the Scalloped Layering Framelit. The card base was Crushed Curry:
Same technique, card base is Dapper Denim:
You can see how different each one is, depending on how much Brusho you use and how it blends! Definitely need more practice!
Cassidy went to a birthday party before Christmas...the little boy's mom and Dana went to Sunday School together and now their children are too! In the background, you can see my great-nephew Jameson as well! It's a family affair!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
