New to me technique using Brushos

Hi there everyone! I had an awesome day in my craft room today. As usual, I am reaching for my Brushos. They have to be one of my most favourite things to use on cards.

While at the HLS Craft Retreat, we had so much fun playing with Brushos. I did a demo using the starch and cling wrap technique.  We had lots of Anything Goes time to play with all our goodies as well. This gave everyone the chance to play at their own pace and experiment.

Darnell created a beautiful panel using her Brusho powders over a stencil. Everyone loved it. I hadn't done this before so decided to have a play today. 

I really love combining Brusho colours to create a bit of a rainbow effect. The colours are so vivid!

Here is my card -

The colours I used are - Turquoise, Purple, Lime Green, Sunburst Lemon, Orange, and Crimson
I love how it turned out. Stay tuned for a video tutorial as soon as my new camera arrives. I can't wait to share this technique with you :)

The sentiment is from the HLS Fun Birthday Sentiments and heat embossed with WOW! powder.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes

  6. Kylie! Hello! This card is gorgeous. I am a big fan of Brushos - still trying my hand with them. Have you published a tutorial on this technique? I need to try it. I love the say you were able to have the colors blend but keep them distinct as well. Love the embossed background and the wonderful embossed sentiment on black. really makes it pop on your colorful panel. Wonderful work. Thanks so much for linking up and playing along with us at AAA Cards!
