Beautiful Day and controlled Brusho

Hello, my stamping friend.
Did you try Brusho before? What do you think about this product? It was very interesting for me to see the reaction of Stampin UP demonstrators when Brusho was introduced back in November. There were 2 groups: Love It or Hate It. I was defiantly not in 'Love It' group and decided not to join other group until I at least try it. It was a new type of product for me, I never heard about it before and with my more 'clean and controlled' approach I knew it will be not easy pass. Few of my customers told me they think it will be a cool product to play with, so I finally decided to give it a try. Watched few videos and found some ideas that would work for me. I found a way to 'control' Brusho and use it for water coloring.
I started with a piece of shimmery white as it is perfect for coloring and Gray archival Ink. Then shake a little of the Brusho on the stamping block and use few drops from aqua painter to dissolve the crystals. Wow, I loved the bold colors of the paint I created. Then I used aqua painter to just color the flower as I would do with a regular ink. But colors are so much more richer with Brusho. You can easily change the intensity of colors by adding more or less water.
Here is another one in orange:
At the end - I was happy I gave Brusho a try and plan to learn other less controlled techniques.
Happy Stamping!
