Vibrant Brusho Card w/Video

Welcome friends! Today I am talking about Brusho Crystal Colours and I have a video tutorial on how to create this stunning card using these Watercolour Crystals!


You might have heard of the Brusho Crystal Colour from Stampin’ Up! already, but just in case you haven’t, let me tell you about it! Brusho Crystal Colour is really a unique and highly pigmented watercolour powder and currently Stampin’ Up! offers  a set 5 different colours. These include Prussian Blue, Brilliant Red, Gamboge, Moss Green, and Yellow.


The powder can be applied to a variety of mediums including: watercolour, mixing with acrylics, simple sprinkling techniques and even wood staining! But for the purpose of this post, I did some good ole’ fashioned watercolour painting.


Before you get started, be sure to gather some of the additional watercolour painting supplies (as noted in the video below). You’ll also find a full supply list at the bottom of this post:

  • Two Mason Jars for water

  • A small bowl or other dish

  • Paper Towel

  • A Paint Brush



Look how pretty this is! I love it SO much! This would make a perfect birthday or Mother’s Day card too!


But to get the most out of Brusho, I have some tips for you and really think you’ll find them useful. They are:

  • Brusho is a highly pigmented product, which means it’s really rich in colour and a little goes a long way!

  • I suggest you do not fully open the Brusho jar, but rather poke a couple of holes in the top with your Paper Piercing Tool (or other). This way you can ‘sprinkle’ on the colour when needed. Think of it as using a salt shaker!

  • You don’t always need to add water to your paper first, simply sprinkle and spritz! Sprinkle your Brusho colours directly on your Watercolour Paper and then spritz with your Stampin’ Spritzer! You can then blend with your paint brush or leave it as-is for a crystalized effect.

  • Watercolour Paper is optimal when using Brusho, but if you don’t have that on hand, use heavy cardstock.

  • It’s messy and spontaneous, and FUN!

If you have some tips to share yourself, please comment on the post as I’d love to learn as well!
