Brusho Crystal Colour meets Lovely as a Tree by Stampin' Up!

How to create this Lovely as a Tree and Brusho Crystal Colour by Stampin' Up!

Get some Brusho in your life!
Brusho Crystal Colour is such a great addition to our range of craft products.

Brusho Crystal Colour are watercolour ink crystals that burst when you add water. You can sprinkle them onto damp watercolour paper, or you can sprinkle them onto dry paper and then spritz. You can also mix them with other colours to make a watercolour palette of your own choosing.

Have a go at using the magic Brusho Crystal Colour watercolour crystals, available through Stampin' Up! 

Now, I can't honestly claim to have mastered Brusho yet - not that there's a right or a wrong! - but it is SO easy to use, and so much fun.

Learn more about today's project
I love this project, it reminds me of the heathlands of Surrey, where I grew up. It reminds me of walking in the Surrey Hills with Mr Hippy when we first met, before we came to Suffolk.

The orange sky is the part that I used Brusho Crystal Colour for. I used the Gambodge (orange) and Yellow crystals.

I also did some sponging, and painting with an Aqua Painter - find the full instructions below.

Make this Brusho and Lovely as a Tree Card by Stampin' Up!

How to make this card 
1. Emboss a sentiment in Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder on your Watercolour Paper - I choose 'hooray' from Watercolor Words.
2.Sprinkle some Gambodge and Yellow crystals onto the top half of the paper. I used a bigger proportion of Gambodge than Yellow but it depends on what look you want.
2. Spritz with a Stampin' Spritzer filled with water - blot the paper with some tissue if you have too much water or dribbles.
3. Stamp some trees from Lovely as a Tree (also available in Wood Mount) using some Early Espresso Ink - make sure your Watercolour Paper is dry, first.
4.  Use the Early Espresso and some Stamping Sponges to spong the bottom half of your card front. Add some sponging to the trees.
5. Use some Always Artichoke to sponge the trees, and an Aqua Painter to colour under the trees.
6. Stamp the remainder of your sentiment - I used Thoughtful Banners.
7. Mount on some Basic Black Cardstock and on a Pumpkin Pie card base.

I hope you like this project! I am so happy with the way it turned out. Looking at it is a bit like walking down Memory Lane.

Back tomorrow with another project,
Find a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in the UK,
