Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – New Video – Brusho – Dry Spritz Technique
Next in my Brusho Video Series I have a New Video – Brusho – Dry Spritz Technique. This technique refers to the paper being dry, adding the Brusho Crystals and then Spritzing to activate the crystals.
What is Brusho? It’s light powder crystals full if highly pigmented colour activated by water.
You will find it in the Occasions catalogue on page 26 along with some basic instructions and a fun stamp set. The best thing to do, is like me, protect your work surface, get a bunch of watercolour paper ready (I embossed some images on some), and just play.

For this week, we are out of control – totally – just sprinkling and spritzing our way to happiness and beautiful vibrant cards. These cards are the dark versions and in the video I show you how you can do a lighter version, by using less crystals and/or more water.
Tips and Tricks for the Beautiful Day With Brusho Card:
Have lots of full spritzers ready, you go through lots of water. Make sure your work surface is well protected because the powder can get everywhere and is activated with water – you don’t want little surprises later. I’m using the Blue and Yellow this time. I used two pieces of watercolor paper for this card. One for the background and the second one I gold embossed the “Beautiful Day” flower onto before I did the Brusho for the “embossed resist technique”.
To make green (for the leaf), I sprinkled a bit of yellow onto my Silicone craft sheet and added just a bit of the blue, mixed it with my aqua painter until I got the green I wanted.
The sentiments were created with the Amazing You stamp set and coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits available through Sale-a-bration.
Here’s the New Video – Brusho – Dry Spritz Technique. If you are reading this in an e-mail, click here to visit my blog to watch the video.
The Brusho has different colour crystals in it and depending how much you wet it, will determine how much they blend together. If you look at the center of the flower and to the right, you see that I didn’t get that part really wet, so the colours stayed separate for the most part. Some of the other petals I blended with my aqua painter for a more filled in, consistent look. Also, how long you leave the piece wet determines how the crystals break down, so if you want that splotchy look, try heat setting it right away…it’s one of those things you just have to play with.
