More Brusho

Here's another card I made while playing with my Brusho paints (see also my earlier post here).

For this one I embossed the ferns first with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder on watercolour paper before sprinkling with the Brusho powder (I used black only) and lightly spraying with water. The embossing resisted the wet paint. I blotted it with a paper  towel to remove the excess ink. Next I stamped the butterfly, followed by the ferns again, this time with Versafine ink on the right hand side of the card blank. I had considered colouring the butterfly, as on my earlier card, but decided not to as I rather liked the graphic quality of the black and white, with just the hint of colour in the Brusho background. I matted the picture with a thin black border and stuck it to the card. All stamps are by Chocolate Baroque.

In this close up you can see the effect of the Brusho more clearly. It's great stuff to work with. Think I'll be playing with it again before long!

Wow, Lynne, this one is also stunning. Such a great idea to emboss first!
Love the slight colour of red through the black. Beautiful!
Thanks for your (3) comments on my blog. I could have published all, but I choose the 2nd one. Comment moderation lets me publish anything I want after reading, so it doesn't matter.
I totally don't mind your commenting in English, most people on blogs and pinterest speak English soo.....

Oh My Goodness - this is another stunner Lynne. I can see why you love the powdered paints, and you are using them brilliantly.

This is beautiful Lynne. I looked up Brushos and it said they were paint, not ink. I tried to find a good definaition of the difference, and apart from inks are transparent and paints opaque (which I knew anyway and apparently it isn't always true), no-one could clearly explain. But I am tempted to invest next time I am having a little 'me spend', because I love what you have done with them. Kate x

Oh Lynne this is another beautiful card, isn't it amazing how many colours show up in the black paint. I also googled Brusho paints after your last post and there is certainly a new item on my wish list.

Gorgeous card! I love the look of Brusho and purchased a set for myself but couldn't find anyone sharing exactly how to use them. Thank you so much for the great posts about using them. You've truly mastered the effect!!
