Awesome Brusho and a Blog Hop

Happy Day-after-Valentine's Day! I hope you were feeling the love yesterday. It's time for another Stamping Symphony team blog hop!

This month we are all about the Brusho. All of us are having so much fun playing with this fabulous new medium that we couldn't resist featuring it in one of monthly blog hops.

This is actually one of the projects we'll be making as part of my Brush up on Brusho class next week. It is the perfect, grungy birthday card for a teen or tween boy. I created my background using embossing paste and the Pattern Party decorative masks. Once the white paste was dry, I brushed it with my Versamark pad and then heat embossed in gold. Here is a closer look:

To create the focal image background I used water colour paper and spritzed it lightly with water. Then I sprinkled on Brusho in blue and gamboge, allowing the crystals to activate wherever they contacted the water. Once it was dry I added the guitar image from the Epic Celebrations Sale-a-bration set and some flourishes from the Timeless Textures set and heat embossed them in gold. I used my Big Shot and Layering Circle dies to die cut a partial circle. I love the of shape of that layer.

The sentiment, also from the Epic Celebrations set, is heat embossed in gold and then I added another flourish in Basic Black, stamped off once. I used the Pretty Label punch to punch the sentiment and layered it on a gold foil startburst. The only embellishments on this card are a few gold sequins.

On the inside I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped the sentiment from Epic Celebrations and more flourishes, all in Basic Black ink.

Now, how would you like to see more Brusho inspiration? Hop on over to Sandy's blog to see what she came up with!
