Rose Wonder Brusho

I experimented a bit with this Brusho background.  I made it at the same time as this one and it started out looking very much the same.   I wanted more muted colours so, while it was still wet with pools of colour all over the glossy cardstock, I spritzed with alcohol.  It worked like magic!  The alcohol repelled the water and I was left with this result.

After I'd adhered the rose, I used Stampin' Blends alcohol markers to colour the leaves and add some shading around the rose.

I wasn't very neat and there were little splodges of marker on the die cut so I attacked them with my Color Lifter.  The poor thing was working overtime and couldn't remove all the colour but it did blend it out and I rather like the result.  I thought the completely white die cut looked a little stark and stiff against the loose background.

The greeting is white heat embossed.


  • Use Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol such as Isocol)
  • I strongly suggest spritzing the alcohol in a well-ventilated area ... or, as I did, vacate the area for a while afterwards!

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
