I've had my Brushos for a while but not actually used them, so this week's challenge was the perfect opportunity to get them out and play. I LOVE them!! I got the idea for this card from this week's MUSE Challenge - MUSE#180 - I think Marilyn's card is so pretty. I die cut a panel of watercolour card, stamped the Christmas trees and sentiment and heat embossed them with clear powder. I sprinkled some yellow and red brusho powder on the panel and lightly spritzed it with water. Then the magic happened - I really like the way the watercolour powder reacts with water and gives pretty bursts of colour. Once the panel was dry I randomly stamped some snowflakes and heat embossed them with white powder. I enjoyed it so much that I made a second card, this time with shades of green, yellow and turquoise Brusho. On this card I stamped the sentiment on some vellum, heat embossed it with clear powder and wrapped it round the finished panel. I adhered both finished panels to black card and attached them to the front of a card blank. On the inside I cut a mat of black card and on the white panel stamped some more trees and a Christmas greeting - using ink to match the front of the cards.
As the Christmas trees are silhouettes, I'm going to enter the current Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#95 challenge. I'm not too sure whether they are CAS enough!! I'm also playing along with this week's Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#208 where the theme is Holiday.
