Playing with Brusho

I have been having a lovely play (aka making a mess!) with my most recent purchase, a set of Brusho crystal colours. These are wonderful tiny crystals of colour that react brilliantly with water and allow you to use in many ways, my journey has just begun. I would guess they are similar, if not the same, as bister which many people I follow are currently using and producing stunning effects with.
Here are my first attempts with them:-
All art work has been created on Strathmore mixed media card.
Background - Turquoise and light brown brusho
Stamp from Chocolate Baroque - Underwater Kingdom set
Stamped with versafine and then the colour removed with beach and then recoloured using diluted brusho.
Sentiment - Clarity word chain No. 5
Background - Grey Brusho I love how there are flecks of other colours in it.
All stamps are Tim Holtz - Road Trip set
Backgroun - Grey and light brown Brusho
All stamps are Art of Brett Weldele - Danny Robot.
Hope you like my first attempts now off to play somemore, these are addicitve to play with as the results you get are different everytime.
Thanks for visiting
