To start I spritz may watercolor paper with some water so when I tap on my Brusho it will automatically start to blend my Brusho. Add as much or as little water as you like.
Next I'm going to start tapping on some purple Brusho. Since the water is already on my paper you can see that the colors are starting to move and flow just a bit. And look at all those different colors we have going on.
To get my colors to move more and really swirl I'm going to spritz my paper a few more times. The more water you use the more the color is going to move. I'm going to repeat this process one more time. Adding a little brusho and then spritzing with water.
Once my paper is dry, I can start cutting out my butterflies. I'm using a large outline butterfly die cut for my card today but you can use any butterfly you have on hand. If you don't have any, there are some beautiful ones right here at Blitsy.
I decided to die cut out two butterflies for my card. This panel is now going to be the front panel of my card. I'm going to trim it down just a little bit so I can have a white border around my card.
Once I had my card panel down I quickly stamped a sentiment between the butterflies. This is just an option. You can leave it without a sentiment and add sequins or any other fun embellishment.
And for the final touch I only adhered down the center of my butterflies. This will make it look like they are flying off my card. Just a really neat touch to add to your next card. Let your butterflies take flight.
As you can tell using Bursho is a sweet way to add a ton of pretty color to your next card. With just a few taps and a little water you can make magic happen. You can even mix the colors to get a really cool effect or keep it simple as I did on my card. Either way your card is going to be a winner.
