Well all I can say is, once you try them, you will love them!!! You have seen some of my previous posts using the Brusho® Colour Crystals and here is another card:
This one is done on watercolor paper, and reminded me of a stormy sea. I chose the anchor and saying from Guy Greetings (page 36 in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017-2018 Annual catalog). I first stamped in Basic Black, however, it did not show enough, so I restamped in Versamark and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. You can see a little bit of the shadow from the black, I should have used my new Stamparatus.
Once stamped I chose Daffodil Delight for the mat and Dapper Denim Cardstock for the card base.
Tip: When using the crystals, experiment with the different colors, and methods: wet on wet, dry on wet, wet on dry, and dry on dry and then spritzing, splattering, aquapainter, mixing on an acrylic block, etc. The possibilities are endless.
I will be having a class on using the Brusho® Crystal Colours later this month. If you would like to attend this class, contact me for details.
Pam’s first project is a fancy fold Shirt Card, using different papers from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.

I love the vibrant colors and I really think they are magical, don’t you? This card could be used for a graduation, brithday, etc. You could even give it with a little gift to someone who is going on a mini vacation, or for the Fourth of July. Okay, here is my favorite Brusho® background:
