Aloha Guys!

Today I’m playing with Brusho’s.  I’m pretty sure you guys are familiar with these products since they are popular right now.  These are Highly pigmented watercolor crystal similar to the Ken Oliver Color bursts.  The kind folks from Colorcraft was generous enough to send me these to play with, which is Awesome!!

These Brusho’s are manufactured in Sheffield in England, and they have been around for over 35 years.  Wow, right?  They have 32 colors available, which I think is totally Awesome!!  They come in many different sets and many different sizes.  The sizes in these containers have about 15 grams of powder, that’s almost twice the amount, that’s in the color bursts.  I love the fact that there’s tons of colors to choose from.  These can be purchased in sets as well as individuals.  So lets’s start playing 🙂

I just poked a hole on the top of these bottles and just put some washi tape for now but eventually, I’ll put thumb tacks in the holes.  The colors are very intense and vivid, and I love to watch the effect when it touches water.

These are background stamps that I embossed using some white embossing powder.  Look at the cool effect that they created.  The embossed image pretty much resisted the colors, giving this cool effect.  FullSizeRender 8FullSizeRender 6

These were created, using some stencils.  I got 2 different looks with using only 1 stencil.  I used the powders on top of the stencil to get a mono print, giving me these 2 different looks.

These are some other ones, I created.  This is basically it.  I had so much fun playing with these and I really love them.  I like these way more that the color bursts, because it comes in so many different colors.  I don’t think, one product is better than the other.  I think it’s personal preference, and it depends on what look you are trying to create.  Both products are fantastic, and I’ll definitely be playing with these a lot more.   Go ahead and check out the video up above if you want to see these crystals react with water.  It’s pretty cool.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you join me next time. Thanks again!

Here is a Video I did on the Color Bursts:

Aloha Guys!

Today I want to share a Card I made for Tupelo Designs LLC’s DT Card using the Ken Oliver Color Bursts and the Altenew Painted Poppies stamp set.  This was suppose to be a super quick card but I had so much fun with it the video became 30 min long.  This is one of the longest video that I made simply because it was kind of real time.  I knew that these color bursts had a very intense vibrant color but I didn’t realize it was this intense.  I LOVE them!!!  This is an Amazing product and a big bang for your buck.  This is a small bottle but it’s jam packed with pigment powders and when you add the water to it, it becomes these very intense colors.  You really only need a small specs of it and that’ll be more than enough to create the colors.  Even though the color is labeled on the front as one color, it actually has some mixtures of complimenting colors.  I really really loved using these and I’m sure I’ll be using them again very shortly.  Even though the video is a little long, you will experience how vibrant and vivid these color bursts can be.  Thank you so much for visiting and please subscribe for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much!
