Brushos and Stamps for Anything Goes!

I couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to go to an Eileen Godwin workshop at Oyster Stamps. She is a lovely lady and her creations with Brushos (amongst other things ) are amazing. I was really inspired and so for my project I used the techniques that I learnt at the workshop.
To begin with I wanted a "Splodge", stencil. Fortunately I have a Cameo, so I designed my own "Broken Lattice Splodge", and cut it out of Mylar. 

I then popped a tiny amount of Brusho powder on to my glass mat, added some water. I used purple, yellow and leaf green. If you haven't seen these bad boys in action you are in for a treat. You literally use a few grains (never open the lid to the brushos, just put a pin prick in it) and sponged the colour through the mask. Once it was dry I stamped flowers using the Penny Black Stamp, "Delicate Florals" and also water droplets from the fabulous Designs by Ryn stamps set. I then painted in the flowers and the droplets using brushos. I double mounted the card and felt it didn't need anything else added to it.
I hope you like it, it is my first unguided attempt with Brushos and I have to say I am really pleased with it!

Happy Crafting!
