One Layer Brushos

The other day I took delivery of a starter set of Brushos and have been having an enjoyable, if messy time playing ! I still need to do some more experimenting but I made this card today for the IndigoBlu 'Just one layer' challenge. 
After stamping on watercolour card I painted the flowers and also sprinkled some Brusho around the edges of the image. Once this was dry I applied Micro Glaze to the painted area before spritzing the whole card with a very pale spray made from a tiny amount of Emerald Green Brusho. While this was still wet I added some additional sprinkled of Brusho in Emerald Green, Leaf Green and Brilliant red.  Once all this was dry I stamped and embossed the sentiment and added background stamping before finally swiping round the edges with Barn Door distress ink. 
I love the effect of the Brushos that contain multiple colours, think I'm going to be spending a lot more time playing - which also means more time with green/blue/purple/red fingers !!

As well as the IndigoBlu challenge I'm sharing this here -

  1. Hi Esther! Amazing one layer card! I hope you're having lots of fun with your Brushos! I just got a set of its American equivalents called Color Bursts :) They are explosive in color aren't they :) But fun to learn about and work with :) Thank you so much for bringing this lovely card to my April Showers Bring May Flowers challenge this month at Our Creative Corner!! XOXO-Shari
