I had fun with this Flying Home Brusho card 2018 Occasions catalog, a little bit of technique & a little bit of whimsy. I loved the Brusho watercolor crystals when I first saw them, however I had never used them. Since I love a spattered imperfect look, so I tried playing with the spritzer as well as the Stampin Up Aquapainter. They actually give a totally different look as I show in the video below!
You can start with an A2 size card base in Calypso Coral. Cut it at 4.25″ x 11″. Score and fold in half at 5.5″. I chose to assemble this card in a landscape orientation so it opens on the right! I stamped the birdhouses twice. Once on my base piece of white cardstock and again on a scrap paper. I colored the houses on the scrap paper and then fussy cut them out. And on the base I only colored the bottoms since I knew I wanted to pop up the houses!
I loved playing with the Brusho crystal color and look forward to really perfecting my technique! In the mean time, just remember to have fun! I did find that only one small hole was enough. and I used a pushpin to keep in the lid. My favorite look so far has been sprinkling and then spritzing. However, the possibilities are many!! Remember to make your envelope pretty!
