Beautiful Day Butterfly & Flower Brusho Cards

 Create bold and colorful images using Brusho Crystal Colour pigments!!  I used the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Day stamp set, with its big, bold images, to highlight the Brusho coloring on these handmade cards today!

I sprinkled Brilliant Red, Prussian Blue and Yellow Brusho onto a scrap of watercolor paper, spritzed it with water, and when it was all dry, I stamped the butterfly image with Archival Black ink to the watercolor image.  I used my Stamparatus to do this... read on to see why! :)

So you may ask, WHY did you use the Stamparatus to stamp the butterfly? 

1.  because I'm stamping on watercolor paper, which is bumpy and porous

2.  because it's a pretty bold outline image

3.  because I knew I'd need to reink and restamp this this a few times to get it really solid black and the Stamparatus is the perfect way to ensure that it gets stamped in the right place!

I mounted the butterfly image with Stampin' Dimensionals onto my card.  The card base is Daffodil Delight, and I used 2 patterns from the Petal Passion black and white designer paper pack.  The gold accents are from the Painted with Love gold vinyl sticker collection.

Above & Below:  I stamped the flower image from the Beautiful Day stamp set with Versamark ink onto watercolor paper and heat embossed it with my heat tool.  When I painted it with the Brusho Crystal Colour pigments, the stamped outline resists the ink.  Quite magical!
