Brusho with Decorative Masks

Hi there stamping friend! I’m continuing with my Brusho technique posts, and this one is about using Brusho with Decorative Masks.

Stampin’ Up! has the great Pattern Party Decorative Masks; a set of 4 masks (also known as stencils). You get a pretty Mandala style, a brick pattern, a mosaic pattern, and a cloud pattern. They’re made with a sturdy plastic material, so they’ll last a long time! The Masks can be used with our Embossing Paste, with Sponge Daubers and inks, or the Sponge Brayers – and now you can use them with the Brusho Crystal Colours!

Just like I showed in yesterday’s post, where I used the Brusho with Glossy Paper (you can READ IT HERE if you missed it), you can create a duo-print with the Masks.

I used the Mandala design when I created mine.

Isn’t that great? Just like with a die cut, you create a positive and negative image of the mask.


Start with 2 panels of Watercolour paper, both the same size. Place the Decorative Mask over the paper, and sprinkle on the Brusho colours you want to use. I started with the darkest in the middle, and moved outwards. First was the Prussian Blue, then Brilliant Red, Gamboge, and finally Yellow.

Holding the mask in place, use the Stampin’ Spritzer and add water to the crystals. Once you’ve achieved the desired wetness, flip the Mask over, placing it face down (what was previously facing upwards) down onto the 2 panel of Watercolour paper.  Gently press or rub over the stencils, transferring the wet ink onto the paper.

Lift up the Mask – and you now have 2 lovely backgrounds! Here is the brick stencil, that Sara did in class last weekend.

I really like both the effect, and the colours that she chose! I’m just sorry that I didn’t manage to get pictures of everyone’s masks – they all turned out great.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
