Eclectic Expressions plus Brusho


I got so busy playing with Brusho Crystal Colour #144101 that I forgot to post...ooops! This card is Eclectic Expressions (a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with purchase) embossed in White Embossing Powder on Watercolor Paper. Then I just "PLAYED" by spritzing water and sprinkling on red and yellow Brusho. Brusho Crystals dissolve into color when they are wet. Every creation is different!


After the watercolor paper dried, I stamped the "shapes" from the stamp set.


This card is a "Z Fold," using the same Brusho colors.

Celebrate You with SHINE


Look closely...the "YOU" shines!! The flowers were colored with BLENDS markers so each flower is a little unique!


The word "YOU" was die cut three times in Basic Black cardstock using the Celebrate You Thinlits (from Sale-A-Bration,) then glued on top of each other. That gives depth!


Next, heat emboss the stacked "YOU" with clear embossing powder for SHINE! That grabs attention!
