MISTI Watercolor With Brusho

May 5, 2016

WELCOME TO MISTI – MAYNIA! I am excited to show you two cards I made using Brusho to watercolor with the mini MISTI. I know it sounds crazy, but I wanted to show you that this tool is really all that and more! This tool is the one thing you need for stamping and I can tell you that one lucky blog reader will be getting a mini MISTI.

Brusho is also a really cool powder product! It is a good investment to make in watercoloring and a little bit goes a LONG way. It is very different in the fact that it gives you very organic watercolor looks on your cards. That is exactly what I wanted today.

This technique proves that spinning in an office chair for an hour with two products in your hands really does make some great ideas come to life! If you have ever heard of Artist Idea Block… I swear it is a real thing and it strikes you on the worst times. The one thing I can tell you about this “real” case of Artist Idea Block, spinning works great!

To get the desired watercolor effect with Brusho (and not mud) don’t put to much powder down and spread the colors out.

Put the watercolor paper into your mini MISTI with grid paper stacked to the brim and sprinkle on some powder. Spray some drops of water onto the door of the MISTI. The more water you add the more color and blending you get. Swing over the acrylic door and push in the places you want lots of color! I know it can be hard to just let it dry, but do it to get a real organic watercolor effect!

I use this Lawn Fawn thanks die all the time whenever I need a good word die, simply because I don’t have any other ones. But, a good word die adds an easy sentiment and looks awesome on a simple watercolor background card!

Experiment with some foam tape on the panels and add them onto some card bases. Now onto the giveaway rules!

    Wow, what a great idea, Simon. A fast, classy was to make a card . I would use the Misti to keep my stamping from wasting so much paper because I can’t seem to stop shakiness from showing up om my sentiments.

    What a cool tool! I’d be using it to stamp a better image, and also to make multiple cards of the same design.

    Simon, you have such a fun and clever idea her! Love this MISTI technique…”It’s not just for stamping” 🙂 I would like to try this when I get my Misti. Also, I would use it for mass producing cards.

    I’d love to try your technique with the Misti. Using any colors would make the end result have an endless supply of options. Thanks!

    What a fabulous idea for using the misti – love it!

      oops forgot to say I would use it for stamping on rough watercolour paper, because that requires repetitive stamping to get a sharp image.

    Great cards would be amazing to have a mini misti.
