Hello and thanks for stopping by to check out today’s new papercraft project. This week the WWYS Challenge is stamping with Oh So Eclectic stamp set. Gorgeous images that will fit any occasion card, and I mean ANY occasion! I’ve made lots of all occasion cards with this set but opted today to use this stamp set to rescue a project fail. I have many projects that start out well but for whatever reason, they take a turn for the worst and I need to set it aside until I can come up with a way to go back and make good use of the work already put into the project. This past week I created a Brusho technique with video on my FB live session and the technique was fantastic. The card was not, lol. Here is how I salvaged this Brusho panel.

One of the really great things about having a technique at hand is being able to customize the design for a new project.
I’ve used Brusho in several different ways so far but never in combination with Glossy White paper and rubbing alcohol. In a recent FaceBook Live video I explored a few ways to combine alcohol and inks/powdered inks with this fun Glossy paper and had fun and unique results. Be sure to watch the video (link below) for the demonstration of these techniques.
After creating several panels, I settled on the one you see in this project. First sprinkling on the Brusho and being generous with the powder, directly onto the Glossy cardstock. Then I used the Stampin’ Spritzer filled with standard Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, I used the fine mist to spray the Brusho and watch it melt into the alcohol and give these fun results on the paper.
Having a panel is a great start to the project but I find having an actual focal point and a sentiment help, don’t you 😉 First I used the framelit for the round flower, cut three and dry embossed these in the Subtle Embossing folder. This gives a beautiful texture and will lay behind the intricate flower die cuts that have color highlights. The finished project reminds me of a painting that hangs on a wall and a vase of pretty flowers that are positioned near it on a side table. Fun summer color decor.
