Color Burst Power

Hello there!

I have a card today using Color Burst from Ken Oliver Crafts and stamps from Impression Obsession (F17109 Your Power, G16166 Lg. Parsley Stem). I used Color Burst in a sort of color block fashion by dabbing watercolor paper onto Color Burst that had been misted on the Best Ever Craft mat. I started on the right (over the embossed phrase) and did that section in Ultramarine Blue. I then added Alizarin Crimson to the top left and Pthalo Green to the bottom left. I like how the colors bled a bit but the finished piece still looked “blocky”.

New Color Burst Colors and some CHA Fun!

Hello there!

I got to play with the new Color Burst colors (Caribbean Brights) from Ken Oliver Crafts at CHA! I didn’t have any to take home so I had the Color Burst Master Ken Oliver make me some sheets of watercolor paper up with some of the new colors and I promptly went back to my hotel and made up some quick cards.  The first two cards use the new Color Burst colors and Ken Oliver Craft stamps (Covered Bridges and Studio Collection Set 1)

Here’s a peek at the new colors!


My last card uses the new (and equally awesome!) new patterned papers from Ken Oliver Crafts that look just like you made a Color Burst background (without getting your hands pretty colors). This paper collection is called Color Burst Splash (and will be available soon). I also stained a canvas flower with Color Burst to match! The stamp is from Impression Obsession. Fun stuff!
