Brusho butterflies

Hi again, I'm trying to get lots of jobs done around the house these school holidays but I've been playing in the craft room instead! I'll start ticking things off the list tomorrow!

I die cut the butterflies from another of my experiments with brushos. Here's the sheet.
There's only grey powder sprinkled on here, spritzed with water and then when dry, some perfect pearls sprayed on. It's amazing how many colours make up the grey!

I didn't used this sentiment in the end as I wanted to link up to Inkspirational
where the theme is note.

I thought hello was a good starter for note cards.

The hello was cut from a scrap of black card so I'm also visiting the playground at

Watercolour paper; brushos; perfect pearls spray; Memory Box butterfy die; Simon Says Stamp sentiment die; Kaisercraft denim pearls; Cuttlebug tiny bubbles embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting,

  3. Oh this is just gorgeous Cathy! Isn't it just amazing how many colours went into that grey Brusho - the brown is the same - always a surprise!

  5. Love your gorgeous butterflies Cathy they make a stunning card


  6. It's really worth clicking on the photo to get a close up of the variagated colours on the butterflies - gorgeous. They look perfect against the embossed spots.
    Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges. Come back next time! Marina

  7. beautiful card Cathy - wonderful use of the brushos - not tried them as yet! Big hugs rachel x

  8. I also clicked for a close up of the butterflies, the effects of the brushos is fantastic. Beautiful designs, what a great idea to use the sheet that you cut your butterflies from. Have a great day, crafting is more fun than housework :) Shirleyxx

  9. I don't know what Brusho is, but I need to find out. These butterfilies are gorgeous. Love that touch of copper(?) that it made. Really pretty card.

  10. LOVE my Brusho crystals and I LOVE the background you've created as well the finished card. Brilliant xxx

  11. What a neat card and a great way to use up your experimental papers.

  12. Great card Cathy! I like how the textured white looks against the smooth white and your butterflies turned out wonderfully! Love the clean look here. It is wonderful having you join us at Inkspirational!

  13. WOW! Just saw you are a prize winner at The Playground, and hopped over to be astounded that you are using Brusho-s. (which I've just had the courage to try for the first time!). This product made 2 very lovely cards for you, and I'm inspired to try what you've done here. My recent foray with brusho-s was very limited, but I spritzed the paper first with a pearlized color. Will be trying what you've done with using the pearl spray after the color dries. Love that you were able to use both the positive & negative results of your brusho background. Great job!!! TFS & Hugs


I love having you visit, and enjoy reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time! :)
