Cards made with Brusho crystals

Yesterday i had a play with a new product in the Occasions catalogue called Brush Crystals. These are watercolour ink crystals that when mixed with water gives your paper a washed look or can make interesting patterns. You can sprinkle the crystals directly onto your watercolour paper or shimmer paper and then add water with a spritz or aqua painter or you can water wash your paper first then sprinkle the crystals on and watch the colours burst.I tried both techniques with varying results.Their are five different colours in the package;red, orange,green,blue and yellow.
The cards I have made I cased from other demonstrators and some have been changed .
The first card shown I cased off Leonie Schroeder but she hadn't used the brusho crystals for her rectangular part.
I cased this card from SigridskreativeART seen here.
I haven't inked up this Up and Away stamp set for awhile so it was good to team it up with the Brusho colours.
This card I have cased from Libby Dyson seen here.She has made several cards with same layout using different embossing folders and colours. This card I sprinkled the colours on and then blended them with aqua painter then embossed with the brick folder.
