As I mentioned previously, it’s rather addictive making cards using the Brusho crystals, finding different effects. Here’s a happy background that really seemed to suit the dancing lady from Beautiful You. Is she dancing or is this yoga? I’m not really sure. Either way, it seems a happy card for a birthday.
I put a piece of watercolor paper onto cling film and sprinkled prussian blue brusho crystals at one end of it and then yellow on the rest of the card. Holding up the cling film to catch the splatters, I sprayed from the bottom rather than down onto the paper. This gave quite a different effect and made the colors blend differently. And the cling film did get fairly splatters so I’d recommend that! I love how there are so many colors on the card even though I only used two.
Once it was thoroughly dry, I added the happy lady using archival black and added a black mat and a dapper denim card base. It’s rather fun choosing card bases because you never can be sure what will look best before you produce the background. It all depends on your mix of crystals. I recommend gently wiping the background with a paper towel to remove any excess powder and to prevent your recipient getting stained fingers!
I hope you enjoyed today’s project.
