I’ve played with the Brusho a fair bit on my own, but after many requests, decided it was time to create a project to take to my monthly stamp classes! Brusho is something that while beautiful, can be a bit uncontrolled, so I wanted a project that even my most meticulous students would enjoy:
In this project, the Brusho is the background. Therefore, they can turn out in many different colours and variations and all will look great! In this sample, I used just the Moss Green. I love how it has little flecks of purple in it.
In the second sample, I’ve used a mixture of the Gamboge (an orange and yellow mix) and the yellow Brusho on Watercolour Paper.
The images are from the new, stunning Enjoy Life stamp set, all stamped in Memento Black ink.
In addition to using the Brusho Colour Crystals over wet Watercolour Paper and spritizing to create the colour, I also laid the Brick Mask over top, spritzed again,and used a paper towel to “mop up” some of the brusho colour to create the lighter brick pattern running through the background.
I did the same technique on this sample, but with the medallion mask. I also have a bit of red Brusho through the background. I love this one.
And to try something different, on this Moss Green sample, I brayered (or sponged) Pear Pizzazz ink through the mask rather than removing colour.
I tried this three times and came up with the above three samples; I think this is one you can’t really go too wrong. Give it a try!
We will be making this project in my June stamp classes, too! Join us!
