My first encounter with Brushos!!

Well this isn't one of my best, but it's certainly not the worst,
and I have to say that I am sort of pleased with the effect I have created -
and as I say in the title, this is my very first experience of using this product.

I think I may have been a bit heavy handed with the amount of crystals I used,
but I think that on the whole it's not too bad an attempt!!
I stamped the image from the Birthday Blooms stamp set 
in Versamark and heat embossed with White embossing powder,
onto watercolour paper.  Then I wet the various sections of the flower in turn, and sprinkled
the Brusho crystals on top, and used an aqua painter to spread the colour around.  
The bit where I could have done better is the very deep blue background, 
which I think is too dark -  a lighter one might have looked nicer.
That said, I love the speckles of Wink of Stella which I flicked onto the finished card.
I think that you can just see these.
My last words on this has to be - well I really enjoyed doing this!!

PS: call back tomorrow and see Jean's first attempt at Brushos -
hers is far better than mine!!
