Crazy Crafters 2018 Sale-A-Bration & Occasions Catty Hop

Hello, welcome to the Crazy Crafters Sale-A-Bration & Occasions Catalogue Blog hop, grab a cuppa and sit back and enjoy.

There are so many wonderful items items in the catalogues, it's hard to choose a favourite. After agonising over the choices, I decided to have a play with Brusho and created these cards suing the Petal Palette Bundle.

I decided to gold emboss the stamped images now for the fun! I added water to the leaf sections then tapped in the Moss Green Brusho - the magic starts to happen as soon as the Brusho hits the water! I used the aqua painter to work the colour to the edges of the leaves where need and then left to dry thoroughly, then brushed of any Brusho crystals with a fine paint brush before repeating the process on the flowers with Gamboge (or as I refer to and Brilliant Red.

I used the same process for the bird below, while that was drying had a created the background  by applying Prussian Blue Brusho, spritzing with water, then smooched with a clear stamping block, I love the vibrant random background this method created.

The Petal Palette bundle has beautiful images and sentiments and the Petals & more thinlet dies mean no fussy cutting, as well as additional detailed dies like I used to for the additional foliage on this card.

Brusho is so much fun, the possibilities are endless, likewise the variations of colour you can create when blending the colours together.
