Just can't put these Brusho's down

Hi Everyone
I am still playing with Brusho's, can't seem to put them down at the moment, they are just so addictive. The other night I decided to have a play to see if I could get some different effects. I sprinkled brusho's onto my craft mat and gave them a gentle spray of water and then quickly dragged my paper through the lot, from left to right. The ammount of water you add dictates how thin that you get the drag marks, and that bit is a bit touch and go. I left them to dry over night and popped them in my "come back to it later" drawer. Tonight I came back to them and have turned 3 of them into 3 quick cards by just adding some achival inked stamped images.
and individually
Just using one image "Banksy girl with umbrella" - Viva Las Vegastamps
Sentiment is from Dina Wakley - Handwritten Quotes
Again just one stamp Lost Coast Desgins - Bird
and another Dina Wakley quote from her Handwritten set
and finally
stamps are all from Art Journey and sentiment is a Tim Holtz remnant rub.
I have punched out the butterflies from an offcut of the card.
Hopefully you are not too fed up with my Brusho cards.
Thanks, as always, for popping by and please feel free to let me know what you think.
See you all soon and have a lovely weekend
