Welcome to Brusho 101!  If you’re not sure what Brusho is you’re in for a treat! This product was introduced in the Occasions Catalog (page 26). Did you miss it? I thought so!

This is first video in my 4-part series on using these amazing watercolor crystals.  These vibrant colors burst when activated with water to create beautiful backgrounds and watercolors. Today’s quick tip video is loaded with tips to get you started and will cover the basics to create beautiful watercolored backgrounds that will have you oohhhing and aahhhing.  But stay tuned! I’ve got lots more tips and techniques coming up in the next three weeks.

Both backgrounds completed in today’s video are posted below along with completed card samples. Be sure to scroll down to see them along with the supplies.

Special thanks to my blog/video follower Linda from Idaho who shared a great storage tip for the Brusho pods and the Stampin’ Spritzer which are shared in today’s video.

These are the two samples from the video once they dried. Pretty, huh?
