I Think I Love You—Blog Hop

I Think I Love You Blog Hop
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes will be inspired by popular songs—the first is “I Think I Love You.” Our Blog Hop today is jam-packed with projects that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or that showcase love. How sweet is that?! We are excited to share our love-themed creations with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Petal Palette Bundle by Stampin' Up!

Today I’m sharing two products I think I love…Brusho Crystal Colour and the Petal Palette Bundle by Stampin’ Up! With Brusho, it is so easy to make beautiful watercolor washes with vivid color and tons of variation. First I heat-embossed a pretty stamp from the Petal Palette stamp set on watercolor paper with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Next, I used a Stampin’ Spritzer to spray water on some watercolor paper; eight to ten sprays did it for me. With the watercolor paper prepared, all I had to do was shake on some Moss Green Brusho over the water. Brusho did the rest. After the wash dried, I used Brilliant Red Brusho to paint the petals in the stamped image.

Brusho Watercolor Pigment from Stampin' Up!

Just a touch of Brusho adds all the variation you need. Can you see hints of blue, yellow and brown in the Moss Green Brusho?

The sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on a scrap of watercolor paper. It was die-cut with a shape from Petals & More Thinlits Dies. Hole-punching the ends gave me a fun way to attach the sentiment with Linen Thread, but Stampin’ Dimensionals make sure it stays in place. The card front was attached to a Real Red card base with Multipurpose Glue.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Louise Sharp at There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group—and you don’t want to miss it!

    This is stunning! I love the look that Brusho gives. Those tiny flecks of color give such an artistic flair. I will definitely try this embossing technique with Brusho,
