WOYWW #382 More Brusho Backgrounds

Hi and welcome to What's On Your Workbench Wednesday as hosted on Julia's Stamping Ground.  This is my desk as it looked late yesterday after a day's crafting with my friend.  She was batch making toppers for Christmas cards using Brushos and Pixie Powders as a background.  I loved the look of what she was doing and had a go myself.  The result: one complete card, a topper and an amazing background sheet.
 
The topper on the card on the right was made using colour over a heat embossed image.  The stamp which I used is the Festive Bells stamp by Woodware, which was stamped using Versamark and heat embossed using holographic embossing powder.
Once the image had cooled, I sprinkled over some Turquoise and Violet Brusho powders and also a touch of Teal Wash Pixie Powder.  These were liberally spritzed with water and the card tilted to allow the colours to run.  
I added more powders to the wet area on my glass mat, spritzed again and then used the remaining colour to create a background on a piece of stamp card, ready for later use. 

Once the bell panel was dry, I added colour to some of the areas using similar colours in Spectrum Noir pencils from the Nautical collection (#63,#64,#74,#79) in order to emphasize some of the details.  I then cut around the image leaving a border.  This was matted onto very pale violet/white card, trimmed as a mat and then added to a DL purple card , using foam pads.  
A sentiment was stamped onto a separate piece of the background card, heat embossed in white, trimmed, matted and also added using foam pads to the bottom of the card.
I love the contemporary effect of these colours.  
I stamped the candle decoupage stamp by Imagination Crafts onto the remaining piece of background card using Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat embossed it with holographic powder again.  
Sections of the image were then painted with a water brush, using a selection of colours from my mica watercolour palette by Yasutomo.
