Live in the Moment

Hello friends.  I hope you're having a good week.
I'm glad you could spend some time with me.


A while back I demonstrated Brushos to my craft group.

We sprinkled Brusho Crystals on one side of a piece of mixed media paper,
spritzed with water and watched the crystals play.

We pressed a flower stamp into the wet color and stamped on the right side
and did the same thing with a script stamp.

Once dry, we stamped a sentiment and added a die cut flower.

I'm entering this at
Craft Stamper Magazine's Take It Make It Challenge
where it's anything goes.  Must have stamping on the card.



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Absolutely love this Bonnie. Such fabulous inspiration....never thought of stamping into the wet brusho's to pick up ink and then stamp onto the 'clean' side of the card. So creative, so unique and absolutely stunning. Loving this one and will be giving this idea a go.....Thank you x

Gorgeous background, I love the effect of the stamping and the scrip such a subtle effect. Looks wonderful with the black flower and sentiment stamp :)

Ohhh Bonnie what a beautiful card - those brushos have worked beautifully there and I love that you used them for stamping on the other part of the card.

Your brusho background is so soft and pretty. I love the black image used on the card and the verse is a wonderful one that we should all strive to do.

Very beautiful Bonnie. Love the idea of stamping into the wet brushos and transferring it to the lighter side. Adds lots of colour and pattern which is so amazing. Definitely going to try this. xx

Wow, I am loving this card Bonnie! The colors of brusho's you used are so pretty and I love that you used the wetness of the brusho's to stamp with on the other side-so cool! Might have to try this out! Hugs, Brenda

Gorgeous Brushos background, Bonnie!
How creative you are to pick up the ink from the wet color on the left side and stamped on the right side!
I’d love to try it next time I use Brushos. The sunset-like background is perfect for the black silhouette flowers! Hideko xx

Susan said...

What a clever technique - I can't wait to try inking up a stamp in the wet brushos! Lovely colours and a great sentiment.

C Daugherty said...

I like the contrast between the light and dark.

Kara Lynne said...

WOW, Bonnie! This is gorgeous! Looks and sounds like a fairly easy technique, but so impactful with a stunning effect. Will have to give this a try. Love it! xx

Susanne Vargas said...

I love the look of this background and really have to try this with my Brushos!

Darnell said...

This made me sit back in my chair, BonBon! Seriously. I don't see how it can not win the CS challenge! I'm bookmarking this. I love how you just added Brushos to the side and then stamped ... the whole procedure and that sediment just took my breath away!! Hugs, Dolly

Pat said...

This is a real 'wow' piece Bonnie with the red hot Brusho colours and the black die cut and sentiment, and love the idea of stamping with the wet colour for a very much softer look to one side. x
