Bister and Brusho collection

Hello,

Bister and Brusho are so popular at the moment, rightly so, they make fabulous backgrounds with minimum effort! I thought I would gather up some photos of my favourite makes with these products and put them together for you to see (many thanks to my dear friend Didi!).

Bister is my personal favourite, I love the natural tones of this dye and the little brown flecks give lots of texture. The little particles take slightly longer to react with water than Brusho, so you have time to play and get the look as you want it. Brusho colours are more vibrant and as they react very quickly with water, I sometimes feel that it 'gets away' from me and the colours merge too much. I use these products slightly differently, the Bister I sprinkle on my craft mat, spray with water then lay the card on top. I usually sprinkle the Brusho onto the card then spritz with water. Either way, they are fun and fabulous!

Here's a list of the stamps used:

Thanks for visiting! Xxxx
