Brusho Crystal Colour with Stampin' Up! - ESAD Occasions Blog Hop

Welcome to the ESAD Blog Hop Celebrating all that is Sale-A-Bration and the new Occasions Catalogue from Stampin' Up! With a load of new stuff to love, 23 wonderful Demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand we have a plethora of new projects, great techniques and pretty things to show you. Did you love Cathy's project? Now its my turn to show you one of the goodies I love - well a few all blended into one card!


I always focus on the stamp sets when I first flick through a new catalogue - how about you? I knew the Brusho's were there but they were not high on my wish list as I was way over the craft budget even with just my stamp set favourites!

So how did I end up with Brusho's when they were not on my initial list?
I popped into a friends for a play with them - came home and ordered my own! Oh my gosh talk about fun and they are so different to anything I have played with before. I searched YouTube - wow - hours later I was stalking the postie for my parcel.

This is some photos of my 'experimenting' - my suggestion is to just play with the Brushos and see where it takes you. I have tried the Shimmer Cardstock and watercolour card bot with very different results. These samples were all using the spritzer and water - some with the paper wet before I started others not. No 2 were the same.


So here is my card and coordinating envelope again for one last look - but now its time to hop on over to see what Leonie has to share so click the next button to discover more.

I used these goodies  plus my trimmer, adhesives, heat gun  and my Stampin' Blends to colour the little Knight.
