Glossy Brusho Technique

For the last 4 weeks I have been on crutches and not able to do much. On my way to Onstage which was held in Sydney in April, I ruptured my ACL while getting into my seat on the plane. It was an eventful weekend, don’t quite know how I managed to hobble around Sydney on one leg but I did manage to have a great time and also attend our pre booked high tea at QBE with Some of the girls from the team.
I had surgery 10 days ago and my brain wants to do much more than my healing knee will allow. So a couple of days ago I tried brushos on glossy cardstock and was instantly addicted!! I’ve been wanting to try it for quite some time so I’m glad that life slowed me down enough to give it a try.
I used Prussian Blue and Moss Green.
I spritzed the glossy cardstock with water first and then started sprinkling brusho. I then spritzed it again until the colour started to run. Then I picked it up and started moving the colour around until I liked the way it looked and then left it on paper towel to dry.

Once it was dry i wiped it with a static duster cloth (pledge grab it brand which you can buy in the supermarket in Australia) it picks up the tiny specks of brusho and makes sure they don’t end up on your next project by mistake! These cloths are also perfect for glitter and embossing powder. They definitely weren’t made for housework ha ha.
The stamp set that I’ve used on the project is a brand new one coming in the new Annual Catalogue on 1st June, Sea of Textures. It was just perfect for this underwater brusho scene. If you live in Australia you can shop with me here on my blog or you can contact me in person. I’ve included photos of some of the other  brusho backgrounds on glossy paper that I had fun making. I am in the process of making a video tutorial for this card and will upload it as soon as its done.







Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!!!
