Coloring with Crystals

I am always looking for fun ways to add color to my projects. And there are so many different ways to do it! Today I want to share a simple NEW way to add color to your crafting projects. It’s called Brusho and it’s super fun! If you love the look of watercoloring, you are gonna love this new product.

Watch this video from Stampin Up! to see it in action!

Isn’t is amazing?!?! I love how the color just spreads across the projects! And it’s simple to use!  I was first introduced to this product in November and have been playing around with it since then.  There are 5 different colors that come in the Brusho pack:  Brilliant Red, Gamboge Orange, Moss Green, Prussian Blue and Yellow. You simply sprinkle the color crystals on your project, add water and watch the magic happen! Or add water and then sprinkle the color crystals on. There are so many fun possibilities!

Here are some of the fun projects I created:

This first project showcases images from the You’re Priceless stamp set. I started with a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of watercolor paper. I embossed the diamond images on the watercolor paper using white embossing powder. Once the images were on the paper, I sprinkled some of the blue color crystals across the paper and then spritzed it with water. The color spreads instantly when the Brusho comes into contact with the water. It doesn’t take much to create a fun watercolor look.

Here are a couple more cards created with the spritzing technique.  You can use one Brusho color at a time or combine them together for a fun look. Although all of these cards I created involved spritzing water onto the Brusho, you can use other tool such as an Aqua painter to spread the color around until you achieve the desired look. I have even seen the use of a baby wipe! It’s a lot of fun! I hope you enjoyed the little project ideas! Have a creative week!
