Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.  Windy and Rainy here today, but temps are mild.

Spent some time in the craft room last night having a play with Brusho's ( Paint Chrystals that
are activated with water) that I bought in AUGUST at a Stamp show.

 Then a new stamp set from Stampendous by Artist Laurel Burch.   These brightly
 colored  images are fun to color in bright fun colors.

For the Brusho's, I tapped off the Crystals in different colors on watercolor
paper with a dry brush then spritzed with a water spray bottle.
The colors burst into bright images of color.  You can dab with a paper
towel to remove some color.  I then used my heat gun to dry the watercolor
paper.  I cut the piece to the size I needed for my card, ran clear embossing powder along
the edge of the top and bottom of the piece  and sprinkled gold embossing
power on and heated.
Mounted  the stamped cats to a dark blue mat, to a mirror gold mat that just
showed on the ends, and finally to a white 5x7 inch card. 

Inside sentiment says "Because You're Special"

Time to make dinner, Ugh....
Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.
Until later...........

Very cool card, Sue. I've got some Brushos that I need to get out and play with, too. It's so fun to see them burst into color. So glad to see you type "Ugh" in response to having to make dinner. I agree with you 100% on that topic!

Wow, Sue, what a beautiful look you got with those crystals. Your kitties are colored perfectly and I like the edges also. Our weather was great for the past three days but today it is back down in the 30's. Have a great Sunday.
