Brusho Gnome Card

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a super weekend!  We had a whirlwind trip to Sedalia, Missouri this past weekend for the 2015 Red Power Round-Up.  This is the national show for vintage International/Farmall Tractors. Dh tells me on Tuesday that we'll be leaving at 2:00a.m. Wed. night...can I rent a car, call to get the dogs boarded, pack, etc. in time??  Oh my, tall order but I got it all done and we left at about 2:15a.m.   It was a LONG haul out there - about 10.5 hrs with all of the construction going on but it was worth it.  It was a fun time and I'll have photos to share prob. tomorrow...ds has the tractor photos on his camera (I have scenery photos on mine).  

I hope you liked what I whipped up for you last week...I had to get it around in a hurry but the projects were made with love.  


I've been getting several requests for more Brusho examples - apparently there are many of you interested in purchasing a set but still aren't sure if you want to spend the money.  Well I vote YES!  These color powders are a-MAZE-ing - seriously.  Loads of fun and so easy to use.  This card was made by first die-cutting the background into 3 sections.  I then wet the paper, sprinkled on the desired colors of Brusho and then gave it a second spritz here and there.  I heated it to dry it quickly then affixed each section to my card.  I used Brusho's on the gnome and butterfly as well.


Later this week I will be sharing a complete list of the colors and what they look like on watercolor and regular papers (there is a bit of a difference).  I think you will love them!  If you have any questions about them, please feel free to ask.  Also, several people have asked for a step by step on one of the cards I made for the watercolor blog hop (the one using the Creative Medium)...I'm working on a step by step for that too.

Supplies:
Brusho Colour Crystals
Unity Stamps - What's Up Gnomey?
IMAGINE Crafts featuring Tsukineko: Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black, Lady Bug; StazOn Ganache; Memento Dual Tip Markers.
MFT - Dies (to cut the waves)

  2. Roni, I personally can never have too much...Roni's inspiring creativity, gnomes, and now Brusho techniques! You always keep us current on the latest and greatest new products.
    I remember your photos from last year's tractor show so I really can't wait to see the fun from this weekend! Oh, and your husband's last minute to-do list for your trip is what my family calls the "did I forget to tell you" moment that my husband will spring on me!
    Much Love,
    Kathy
