I have tried the Brusho Crystal Colour a couple of times (And yes that is how it is spelled in the catalog) but this is the first time I was fairly happy with the results.  I used the great Beautiful Day stamp set, which is on the same page in the Occasions Catalog (page26).  All I used with the two was an Aqua Painter and a spritzer



Beautiful Day, 145915



I stamped and embossed the butterfly first.  I then spritzed the paper with water and sprinkled two of the Brusho colors.  This is something that you just have to try.  It is a fine line, at least for me, with not enough water or too much water.  I did get it to where I liked it and then took a fairly dry Aqua Painter to “paint” the butterfly wings.




My banner blue dot was a pleasant surprise.  I used the White Accents.  They come in a variety of sizes on one sheet.  And I colored it with the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.  It only took a minute to dry and I am in love with it!  I tried the Stampin’ Write Marker and it would not stick to the glossy surface.  So skip that step and go straight to the Stampin’ Blends.

Public Service Announcement:  Sort of 🙂

We are in the final couple of weeks of Sale-A-Bration.  With that I wanted to let you know a great tip.  If you think you would like to try the Brusho, and it is a lot of fun to play with, now is the time.  With the purchase of the Brusho Crystals, Aqua Painter, and Spritzer…..you are at $50.00.  And these items are not use a couple of times and you are out.  Oh No!  These items will last you forever!!  So they are great investments for your stamping/crafting years to come.
