It's great to be back after a few days away and I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying the well-earned break.
A week into December I realised I had nowhere near enough the number of Christmas cards I needed to send this year so I made quite a few more which I haven't yet shared with you so I'll be sharing these with you over the next few posts.
So, first up I decided to have a play with my Brushos and made two cards of the same design. I decided to go with non-traditional Christmas colours for these.
So for these I started with two pieces of watercolour card, slightly smaller than my card bases. I sprinkled a tiny amount of Brusho crystals onto the card, and I mean tiny, in two different colours and them misted with some water and let the magic happen. The pigment contained in these crystals is unbelievable! Once dry I mounted onto my card bases using 3D foam strips. I die cut two snowflakes and adhered flat to the panels and added some Wink of Stella for subtle sparkle. I then stamped the sentiment banners and die cut using the co-ordinating die before adhering over the snowflakes.

I think I'll be playing with my Brushos a lot more next year, I just love how every creation is unique in the way the pigment crystals disperse.
Thanks for popping by, I'll be back soon with more of my last minutes makes!
