Coloring like this brush preview
I found a custom brush that I downloaded into GIMP here:
http://lordofdesign.com/aj-swirls-photoshop-brushes/

I really love the coloring on the demo image, but I'm uncertain how to go about colorizing the strokes in that same way in gimp. When I use the brush in GIMP it puts it down in one color (i.e. all pink but with a little bit of the fade out like you can see in the picture.) When I try to select just the stroke and paint over it with other colors, I lose the fade quality of the brush and it becomes an opaque of whatever color I chose.

How to I colorize this brushstroke without losing the fade out?

EDIT: with correct link.

I don't see any brushes in the page you link to. I don't even see anything I can relate to your post?

Use the "Opacity" setting of the Brush tool (or the various paint modes, in particular "multiply").
