My Feelings ATC by Alison Hall



Here's a little project where I used my favourite surface Stampbord, & my new favourite medium Brusho Crystals :-)



Brusho Crystal Colour - Scarlet & Lemon
Book Paper




1. When I got my little pots of Brusho Crystals, I used a piercing tool to pierce some small holes in the lids, just like on a pepper pot. This makes sprinkling easier, & means you don't need to take the lids off & risk using too much.

2. I misted the Stampbord ATC with water, then sprinkled on some scarlet and lemon Brusho Crystals. I let the crystals disperse a little, then misted them with a little more water. Once they had dispersed as much as I wanted, I used a heat gun to dry the ink, then brushed off the excess crystals with my fingertips.

3. I used the black archival ink to stamp the starry heart onto the stampbord, then stamped it again onto some book paper. I cut out the book paper heart & used glue n' seal to adhere it to the Stampbord.

4. I mixed a few of the Scarlet Brusho crystals with water, then painted the heart.

5. I finished off by stamping some stars from the edge of the stamp in two corners, inking the edges of the ATC, & adding some appropriate cut out words from a book page.


I'm looking forward to using these fabulous, colourful crystals some more!
