Have Fun Stamping With Brusho – Tips. Today’s CASE card comes from page 125 of the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue. It features the use of Brusho as an ink for stamping. I had to give this a go. There are some very brief instructions about how to do this technique, but it took me a few attempts to work it out. This is the process that works for me, but if you find a better way. Please let me know.
First pick a stamp that has a reasonably solid image, this is not a technique for small or fine images, you need a reasonable stamp surface to work on. I found that spritzing the stamp very lightly with water first helps keep the Brusho in place. Sprinkle a reasonable amount of the Brusho on the damp stamp and then lightly spritz again. Have your watercolour paper ready and then stamp. hold the stamp in place for a short while and then see what has happened. This will be a little hit and miss, but remember you have two sides of paper.
I didn’t add too much more to the final card as the paper and stamping are already quite busy, so a few Faceted Dots was all that was needed. Surprise, surprise, I added the dots in my usual triangle.
Once I had finished the video for the cards I thought I would see if I could replicate the effect using just inks and sponge daubers. I chose an odd combination of colours, Mint Macaron, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry. Add them to the stamp in that order (with a separate dauber for each colour) so you don’t effect the colour on the ink pad, then lightly spritz with water. Guess what? It works!! I did make it into a card and this is what it looks like.
Well, that’s it for today, I hope you enjoyed all of these cards and found the tips helpful.
