Brusho, Stampendous & Embossing Folders!

2018-04-04 18.10.57
After watching several youtube videos today on how to use Brusho watercolor crystals with embossing folders, I decided to give it a try!  I began by sprinkling blue and purple crystals onto the recessed side of my Sizzix Textured Impressions-Floral Tapestry folder, then spritzed them with water which made the color bloom and spread into the grooves.  I placed the Canvasette Paper Canvas card stock  onto the wet paint then closed the folder and pressed for a few seconds.  Look how beautifully it came out!  To make my card, I clear-embossed the roses and leaves from Stampendous’ Rose Garden stamp set, then painted them with more crystals which I dampened with water.  I let them air dry, added more paint and dried again.

I trimmed down the embossed panel, adhered it to a layer of white card stock, then onto a card base of blue which I’d run through my Cuttlebug with another Elizabeth Craft Designs Spring Leaves folder for texture.  I mounted the roses and leaves using pieces of foam tape.  I really enjoyed trying out a new technique!
