Adventures with Brushos - the blue/orange ones

Unintentionally this week turned into a Brusho themed week on the blog so I might as well finish up the week with more cards made with Brushos.

I wanted to get away from the butterflies and make some more masculine ones so used this lovely lighthouse stamp from Kanban.  The sentiments are by Personal Impressions.

But then the overwhelming urge to use butterflies overtook me again.  I made this card for the Fiskarettes UK Facebook May challenge which was to use the colours ice grey, slate grey, light blue and orange.  The die cut and stamped butterflies are all from Stampin' Up, the sentiment is by Hero Arts.
I was left with two small pieces - enough to make two mini cards and when I turned them over I thought the patterns/colours on the back were more interesting.  The butterfly is a Hero Arts stamp and the sentiment is by Penny Black.

I am now kind of addicted to making backgrounds with Brushos so expect to see them used on plenty more cards in the future, especially as there is a techniques article on using them in this month's Craft Stamper which is giving me lots more ideas on how to use them


  1. Never heard of brushos, off to google them now lol

  2. I especially love the blues and greys in the last two

  3. I've enjoyed my little catch up seeing all your different Brusho backgrounds :)

  4. The lighthouse ones are beautiful Karen x

  5. Fabulous card, those lighthouse ones are perfect for a mans card.


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