Brusho in the garden

Brusho die cut garden Heather Telford

I tried out yet another watercolour powder recently when I got together with some arty crafty friends. Brusho seems to be similar to Color Burst and has a lovely range of bright colours. The panel featured on the card above was cut from one of my first experiments. I sprinkled green, blue, orange and yellow brusho powders on watercolour paper then spritzed and tilted the paper to let the colours blend a little. I did walk away (to eat chips) and let it dry alone. You can see some sections of the paper remained without colour.

The multicoloured panel seemed a good match for the intricate garden die I had not used before now. I tried backing it with green and white but the contrast of the black card base was the most effective.

      I am really enjoying the earthy colours in the Bistre collection and don’t mind dropping them from the tip of a brush. The Color Burst bottles with fine nozzle ends are definitely a good idea though for avoiding spillage or other accidents!

  3. This is absolutely fabulous! I love the Brushos on the die cut against that black background – looks awesome! I must have a go at something similar. I have just started playing with my Brushos – I used them once before a while ago, but made three cards last week and loved playing with them! xxx

    This is a beautiful die and love the Brusho colours on the watercolour paper which has cut beautifully. Brushos are something I have not had a go at yet. x

    My set of Brushos arrived from the UK last week, but I haven’t had time to play with them yet. Love the intricate flower panel against the black background.
