Brusho Photo Series -Stencil and Doodles – Happy Birthday

Hi there,

Here is some more Brusho inspiration using stencils.

I taped a dotted stencil onto a piece of Strathmore cardstock which was attached onto the backing cardboard of the pad.

I dropped the busho all over the pad and them sprayed, and dried and sprayed again and dried again (that way avoiding the water to spread under the stencil).

Once I removed the stencil I dropped a few large drops of water onto the brusho and let it dry for a few days – it was dry after a few hours really but it took me a few days to complete the card.


I stamped the greeting with some Memento Tuxedo black and it didn’t really work so I used a black gel pen and drew over the greeting.

I then added the white gel pen and that confirms what I said before, gel pen reactivate the brusho and white especially! I have been using a new Gel pen which is much jucier (and that’s a good thing) but it reactivated the brusho much more as well, so I’ll admit it was pretty challenging!

I wasn’t too happy at that stage so as a last resort to save my greeting, I added some shading with some Copics (C7, C5, C3 and C1) and that created almost like a shield onto the gel pen which enabled me to add more gel pen without it reactivating the Brusho as much.

It’s sounds very complicated and messy but it worked out in the end 😉

I then added a doodly frame on the edges to add a little bit of interest (in black this time!)


So lesson of the day is…. avoid white gel pen on brusho 😉

Have a great day!
