Getting messy with Brusho

Most of my crafty friends know that I am not one for doing messy crafts - I hate the clearing up, I'm really clumsy and usually end up wearing more ink than ends up on the paper and I just hate having inky fingers.  BUT I have been really loving seeing all the super work out in blogland of Brushos.  It just so happens that a friend that I spent the weekend with, has Brushos and offered to bring them along so that I could have a play with them.  (If you don't know what Brushos are, they are a dry crystalline powder that mixes with cold water to form a painting medium.  The colours are really intense and a little goes a long way).

So look at me getting all messy and playing - note I'm wearing an apron and gloves - all was well until I took my gloves off and picked up one of the wet sheets - at least I now know that Garnier Body scrub will remove the purple and blue ink that stained all my fingers!!

Once the backgrounds were dry I was then able to make some cards

These use a Technique Tuesday stamp and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up Butterfly Basics set.

 These are from a new Penny Black T for transparent set called Snippets

 I've still got several more background sheets to play with and I will definitely be getting some Brusho to use myself - thanks Sy for taking the time and trouble to show me some techniques for using Brusho.


  1. I love your cards! Those backgrounds look really awesome, such vibrant colours! When it comes to mess and getting paint and ink on my hands, I'm quite the opposite - colourful fingers are a sure proof that I had a fun day in the studio ;-)

  2. They are gorgeous, I love the way you have stamped the images in black :-)

  3. Well worth getting messy for. They look gorgeous.

  4. They look fantastic! And you have introduced me to something new too.

  5. They look better than mine and I'm the one who let her play!!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
