Brushos & Dot

Dot and I had another Skyping session and this time we used our Brushos.

These are a new addition to Dot’s crafting stash but I have had mine a while … holding up my hands in shame as I have not used them very much.

You can see one of my makes herehow sad is it that I made this a year ago and this was the last time I used the Brushos.

We experimented by using different cardstock with them and making  some very vibrant coloured backgrounds.  Can’t wait to see what Dot makes with her backgrounds.

Because of the time difference Dot scooted off to bed but I had time to turn my finished backgrounds into three different cards.

So Special from Katzelkraft is the main focal point on my first card – also used other stamps and a stencil.

For my second background I used only two colours and some very different stamps.  The ladies are from Hero Arts and the coffee from Stampendous.  The bubbles are a fave little background stamp of mine and I love adding little doodles in the centres.

Grunged the edges on the last card and used stamps from Dyan Reaveley called The Right Words also a Visible Image stamp.

Second Make With Brusho’s

When you look here you can see my first make with Brusho’s.  What I forgot to say in the post was the type of cardstock I used.  It was a 300gsm watercolour card.

This time I have used the Clarity white coated cardstock which you can find here.  Totally different types of cardstock producing different looks to the projects.

No preference yet of which cardstock I like the best as I am still in the experimental stages and there are so many more to try.
