More Brushos and Aspen Trees


Hi everyone.  Last week I posted these cards using the same stencil, layout and design, but using just Black Brushos for the background.  These are so many pigments within each colour.  Today is just Light Brown Brushos.  So happy with how they turned out.

Here's my second one ...



Just wanted to share. :)

Since I used snippets for my die-cut deers, and snippets for the torn snowdrifts, I'm linking up to Snippet Playground. :)

And I'm linking up to Simon Says Wednesday - Anything Goes.

Edited to add:  Thanks to Linby, I'm linking up to  Mo's May Rudolph Days Challenge.


Hope you're have a great day!

Donna said...

Now these are lovely, Loll. I like them A LOT :)

Janine said...

Great cards - haven't tried Brushos with stencils

Loll said...

Hi Shirl. Both mixed media paper and watercolour paper work great with brushos. Since I wanted the trees to be as "white" as possible, I used mixed media for the above cards. Loll xx

Look at you getting the jump on all those Christmas cards, Loll! Such a stunning effect with the Brushos.

Susan said...

Just as lovely as the one with the black brushos! It's a great design!

Vicki Dutcher said...

WOW! You seriously can get those Brushos working for you! I wish you did videos - I would love to see how you control them. I end up with blobs...

Colleen said...

Gorgeous light brown Brushos background Loll. I need to play with my browns more. I do not have black Brushos, but love the effect with your light brown. TFS and I feel an Inspiration coming on my friend! Hugs, Nancy

Bonnie said...

More gorgeous cards for that Christmas stash! I love that background and the white birches are so pretty against it!

Nancy Stislow said...

Wow do I love that color! Just experimented today with the black thanks to your tip! Love the reds in this! I love how you achieve clear images with wet media and a stencil!

MaryH said...

Wowsers! This is just splendid. Who would ever guess those black crystals could create this yummy textured background for these trees? Absolutely fab snow that your deer is standing in too. Must try this. What inspiration indeed! TFS & Happy wkend. (Nancy has it well dais about the clear images in the wet....it's very crisp and detailed).

These are gorgeous Loll - a lesson in what a difference colour can make.

Linby said...

This really caught my eye in the playground. I went to see the black version expecting silhouettes and was blown away, must try black on its own! These are just as beautiful. You could enter them at Mo's Rudolph day challenge.

Di said...

Utterly fabulous Loll! I'm stunned at how you work with your Brushos and always get such gorgeous results.

Lovely to see you in the Snippets Playground :)

Hugs

Marcia HIll said...

Beautiful! Guess I need to add the light brown Brushos to my wish list (along with the black!)! :0)

Julia Aston said...

Wow - how beautiful Loll! the Brushos look wonderful through your tree stencil - love the torn snowy ground as well! Julia xx

My Card Attic: Hazel said...

These are amazing Loll! How you get such detail with Brushos through stencils is beyond my comprehension! I end up with it seeping under and the pattern of the stencil is never recognisable!! Obviously I either need more practice, or, . . . skill! Have a lovely weekend my friend! Hazel xx

My goodness...these two are gorgeous. The brusho work is stunning and looks like such depth of colour behind those birch trees.

Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph days Challenge.

Bożena Adamusińska said...

This is another great card using the stencil. I love your technique, perfect amount of water causes the powders brushos beautiful work but do not flood other parts of the background. You are a true master of this technique me this art unable: - ((
I love your scenery. I'm starting to miss the winter, and it's very strange :-)
hugs,

What fantastic scenes, Loll ... delicious depth and dimension! Love how you scaled the second one to match the smaller deer ... what a brilliant touch! Hugs, Anita :)

Be still my heart. More of your Brusho wonder-working. These are scrumptious.

Barb Ghig said...

Gorgeous effect with your light brown Brushos, Loll! I love how the variation in the colors creates movement on your cards, and the single deer is so striking! Looks like I'll be taking out my brown Brushos, too :)
