Let's Celebrate

Using watercolor as a medium will aways yield a unique card. No matter what pigments and paper you choose to use, water is the key to originality. Its fluid state allows for the colors to appear transparent or concentrated. I used Brusho powder on the following card. 

   Amazing You

   Tranquil Tide A-2
   Basic Black 5-1/4 x 4
   Glossy White 5 x 3-3/4, Scraps

   Archival Basic Black

Brusho Crystal Colour:
   Moss Green
   Prussian Blue
   Brilliant Red


   Water Mister
   Clear Faceted Gems
   Paper Snips

I first slightly misted my glossy white panel. 

I then began to sprinkle Brusho powder onto the surface. Only one or two colors at a time. I did my best to not place colors on top of each other. I sprayed more water, tilting my paper and dabbing with a paper towel if needed.

I made a couple of panels at the same time. Sprinkling brusho powder, spraying with water, tilting the paper, and dabbing with a paper towel, until I was happy with the result.

I then set these aside to dry. The color may change a bit after it dries.

I then stamped directly onto the panel using Archival Basic Black ink. I stamped flowers on the other panel and fussy cut one of them. I attached it using dimensionals to make one of the flowers pop.

I added the clear faceted gems and adhered the glossy panel onto the Basic Black and then onto the Tranquil Tide card base.

  1. Oh this is gorgeous. Great bright happy color and terrific watercolor feel to the card.

  2. Thank you Ladies! I am happy with this one too. I am sure I would not be able to recreate it. I might get close, but usually the watercolor panels are one of a kind.
