It will be my turn to demo something at our craft club in December and I've chosen Brushos to play with. I've been making up some quick cards cards to take along as samples and show what effects you can get.
I started this card by stamping an IndigoBlu butterfly onto watercolour card with Black Archival ink then painted over it with Pebeo Drawing Gum. I sprinkled Sandstone Brusho powder around the butterfly and spritzed it with water.
Once the card was dry I rubbed off the drawing gum then sprinkled Vermillion, Lime Green and Dark Brown Brushos onto my craft mat and added water to them to make paint. I coloured in the wings and body of the butterfly with these.
I made some dots by dripping some Ranger Enamel Accents
and some Tonic Nuvo drops onto acetate
and left them overnight to dry. I liked the idea of doing them this way because it doesn't ruin your whole project if you muck them up, plus you can do loads in one go.
I have two tips to pass on :-
1. don't do them too close together
- they merge into each other, as you can see in the second column
and 2. don't put Ranger Enamel Dots onto acetate
- they stuck to it like concrete and wouldn't come off in one piece :D
