Happy Tuesday to you! Diane with you today and I have to tell you, I am very excited about this card! I love how it turned out!
This was created for our current challenge we have this week, which is Colors of Fall! As soon as I saw the inspiration photo, it just screamed Ken Oliver Color Bursts at me!
There are several techniques to use Color Burst, my favorite so far is how I did this card.
Using the smoother side of water color paper, I used an Empty Spritzer Bottle to saturate it with water. Then using 3 colors of Color Burst, (starting with the lightest to the darkest): Lemon Yellow, Orange, and Terre Verte, I puffed the colors on the water.
By puffing I mean, I shake the bottle (with lid on of course) upside down, open, then just lightly squeeze (puff) onto the paper/water.
A little bit goes a long way, so be careful. If you get spots of color, just spray with more water until you are satisfied with the colors. You can always add more water, but not remove the color!
I heat set my colors so I could continue on with my card,
but you can set it aside and just let it air dry if you prefer. I cut a few Impression Obsession Birch Trees, which I then rubbed a bit of grey ink on.
I cut a fox from Poppystamps Fine Foxes, colored him, then adhered him to the card.
Last I used a piece of Heavyweight Vellum, ran the Anti- Static Bag across it, used VersaMark ink on Impression Obsession Autumn Leaves stamp set, then sprinkled Apricot embossing powder on. Heat set and I had a pretty fall card!
I wanted to mention that the color bursts can be bought single or in a set, whichever you prefer. I purchased my first 2 colors just so I could try them out. It wasn't long before I bought both the EarthTone set and completed my Brights set. In fact I love this stuff so well, I am now friends with Ken Oliver on Facebook..LOL!
