Humming Along with Brusho Watercolor Crystals

Hello and Happy Tuesday! Holy FRIGID Tuesday too! It seems here in the Northeast we have plunged into an arctic blast! We got clobbered with a bit of snow, well, ok, a lot of snow over the weekend and now arctic air has taken over with wind chills of -25 and less. Makes me very grateful to have a warm fire to sit by as I write this, especially since I have a nice case of laryngitis to go along with a nice chest cold. Although, I think hubby may be enjoying my laryngitis a little too much? 
Anyhoo, I have a fun card to share with you. It features a the gorgeous Sale-a-bration paper, Grapefruit Grove Foil sheets and some awesome Brusho Watercolor Crystals. 

These foil sheets are amazing on their own, however, run through an embossing folder really makes them pop. Here I used the brand new Lace embossing folder found in the 2019 Occasions catalog. It's attached to a Thick Whisper White card base after I wrapped it with the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. I then layered a Whisper White oval cut with the Stitched Shapes dies onto a scalloped oval cut from Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the Layering Ovals Collection. For the flower and the Humming Bird, I stamped these images onto Shimmery White cardstock using Stazon Jet Black ink. I then colored in the flower with Brusho Watercolor Crystals using my Aquapainter. I diluted the color first and then painted in the flower. For the Humming Bird, I saturated the image with water from my Aquapainter, then sprinkled the color on, I then used my mister to move the color around a bit. I then dried both images with my heat tool and die cut them out using the coordinating die set. Both images were popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals and I was very generous with those Dimensionals to ensure the images didn't have any areas that would sag or "flop". Brusho Watercolor Crystals are a lot of fun to work with. There are so many ways to use them. Just pull them out and start playing with them and have fun!
Happy Stamping,
