Peekaboo Tag Baby Card

I fell in love with the little elephant in this set – I don’t even make many baby cards but I just had to get this one and play with it! And adding a lyric from Annie Lennox and the Eurythmics?? Bonus for me. (Yes, I’m dating myself!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The construction on this was a little unwieldy at first, but did work out in the end. Love the peekaboo on the front!

Brusho. In. SPACE! Brusho control tips

As a kid I was a huge Muppet fangirl. Especially of the PIGS IN SPACE! segments. So….here’s an ode to the show (that has pretty much nothing to do with Pigs in Space!) When this space stamp set came across my little world, well…..yeah. I had to go there! With Brusho, too. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The intensity of color in Brusho pigments is really pretty amazing. While it’s a product that needs practice – it’s well worth it for the effect!

Brusho Flowers: Concord & 9th Pretty Petals

If you want to paint pretty flowers, but need a little nudge – this stamp set has some perfect images to get you rolling along. I’m using Brusho, though you can use other paints – but it’s easier, from my experience, to loosen up with Brusho. Note that though I wasn’t sure in the voiceover, I was using a 12 to get huge petals like this. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The second card uses the other stamp – but basically the same painting technique.

The surface I work on with Brusho is the Craft Assistant – very easy to clean up, and that’s important with watercolor powders! The three colors I used on these cards are Turquoise, Purple, and a little Gamboge. See supply links below.

24 Tags of Christmas 2016: Brusho Lights

24 Tags of Christmas 2016: Brusho Lights

Day three in the 24 Tags of Christmas week brings none other than Brusho – watercolor powders! If you want more info on the powders, there’s a playlist HERE.

Brusho Lights

These tags are super easy to make – and your kids could make a lot of ornaments you can use for your holiday cards, too! The String of Lights dies are really sweet, and the watercolor powders add a strong pop of color and an artsy feel. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I was so surprised to find that using a little brusho on a bag – a bag with a plastic coating, no less – worked! You need to be gentle with water, but it’s really pretty!sandy-allnock-24tags16-3a

You can see all the tags from all years in the 24 Tags of Christmas Gallery!

Mermaid Week #3: Watery Glass Dome

Mermaid Week #3: Watery Glass Dome

Mermaid week continues…this time with watery brusho!

Watery Glass Dome

Brusho was an obvious choice to use for such a “wet” subject matter! I love to find creative ways to paint with these powders. While it may not have gone as I originally planned—I plowed through. Let me know what you think! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Many just make backgrounds with watercolor powder – but Brusho is so much more powerful! The cute set from My Favorite Things is called Forest Friends – and the stamps are larger and have great open spots for a technique like this, too. Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

Aren’t these sweet little stamps?
