Hi, There!

I just received a new birthday present - Brushos!!!!  I have the day off so guess what I did - played with my Brushos!  These are amazing and I first noticed these awesome backgrounds on other cards and just had to do some research.  And of course, it was "I Just Have To Have That"!! impluse!!!  I got the 12 color sample and the product is made in the UK.  They are crystal powders - very rich pigment - and just a sprinkle does it on wet watercolor paper - POW!!!  It never looks the same twice - unpredictable and just awesome and so much fun to play with.  Possibilities are endless!!  I put a couple of my first time samples at bottom of this post.

Image I used is from East Wind called Lucy Loo Spellbound.  I love all the Lucy Loo images so this was a no brainer for me.  I colored her up with my Copic markers!!  So much fun making this card.  Thanks for stopping by, have a great evening and I hope you get to play some too!!!  Soooo good for the soul:)  Hugs ~  CaroleAnn

This is only using black Brushos as you can see if I added more water it spread more - but look at the colors in this black crystal!!
