I’ve used the Brusho Crystal Colour for backgrounds and for painting an image. Today, here’s a card that uses it as an ink pad.

Brusho, Bubble Over, Stampin' Up!

Behind the sparkly bottles of refreshing goodness, you’ll see watercolored bottles. That’s the Brusho. It’s so fun – simply sprinkle Brusho Crystals on a bottle stamp from the Bubble Over Stamp Set in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog spritz with water, and then stamp on Watercolor Paper. I think I only sprinkled one time, and I was able to get five bottles out of one “inking.”

I used Prussian Blue for the bottles. Then I diecut two bottles (and some labels) using the Myths & Magic 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper (Turquoise and Light Green) and the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies.

I added a few bubbles in Smoky Slate to the background piece, then adhered the bottles and labels. I used a hot glue gun to add the labels to the bottles, since it’s hard to get other adhesives to stick to the glimmer paper.

Pacific Point is one of the colors I don’t use a lot, but it looks lovely with Lemon Lime Twist (my card base). To mimic the bubbles on the card, I embossed it with the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then layered it and the stamped layer to the card base.

    Such a fun card, Buffy! I love the Brusho stamping – but does it stain the stamps? Or does the Stampin’ Mist clean it off nicely? Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks, Deborah! Yes, it does stain the stamps. (Define “nicely.”) Although I don’t use Stampin’ Mist much, because the smell is overpowering and messes with my allergies, I did try it on the Brusho-ed stamps, and they’re still stained. However, I washed them in Dawn, and…they’re still stained, but not that badly. (I wash the blocks as well, because I’m kind of messy.)

        Thanks for answering my question, Buffy! I guess if they’re no more stained than with a darker ink, then I could live with it! (or, I’ll just have to buy a 2nd stamp set, for ink only! LOL)

    Ha ha! I love the way you think, Deborah!! I’ll send you a picture of what they look like.They’re not too bad. (As Mike would say, “they look just bad enough.”
