Did I see Santa there?

Na, habe ich da etwa grade den Nikolaus herrauschen sehen?
Did I just see Santa there?

Mit Brushos kann man so tolle Effekte erzielen und dann braucht es nicht mehr viel mehr, um eine toll wirkende Karte zu gestalten. Für diese Karte habe ich den unteren Teil mit einem Papier abgeklebt, oben in drei Ebenen Brushos aufgetragen (unten helles blau mit weiß gemischt, Mitte helles blau, oben dunkles blau) und das Ganze dann mit Wasser besprüht. Nach dem Trocknen mit der Heatgun habe ich das Motiv mit Versamark gestempelt und in blau embosst. Noch ein Schriftzug dazu, fertig ist die Santa-Sihouetten-Karte. Da es so schön ist, habe ich gleich noch ein paar weitere Exemplare gemacht.
Brushos create such beautiful effects, that one does not need much for a very effect-full, but still plain card. I masked the lower part of my card with a paper and poured Brusho crystals on the top part in three zones (a mix of light blue and white for the lower one, light blue in the middle and dark blue on the top) and misted it with water. After thorough drying with a heat gun I stamped the image with VersaMark and embossed it in blue. Just add a sentiment and you have a perfect Christmas card. It is so easy that I made a whole series of it.

Stempel / stamps: Indigo Blue Here Comes Santa HCI; Kartenkunst (Frohe Weihnachten); Schriftbild Weihnachtspost (Weihnachtsmann)
Stempelkissen / stamp pads: Versamark; Memento tuxedo black; StazOn black
Embossingpulver / embossing powder: Heindesign Sternenstaub blau
Brusho white, ost. blue, prussian blue

  9. Oh this is absolutely amazing! Love your sky using Brusho crystal! Oh so magical! I don't have Brusho crystal. Do you know of any other products that would give the same effect as the Brusho crystal Nicole?

    1. Dear Christina,
      Besides Brushos there is also Colorburst and some other brands, which are water colour powders. But these powders do not compare with any liquids or pens. The special effects that you can achieve with them are unique to them being powders so that they give great accents and diffuse patterns when they get in contact with water. As far as I am aware, you can buy them anywhere (US, Germany, UK,....) and they are not very expensive.
