Flowers In Bloom Card Kit With Color Burst Trio Technique

By | 07/16/2019

The July My Favorite Things Card Kit is called Flowers in Bloom and it has some fun Color Burst powders and watercolor papers from Ken Oliver.  It also had a stamp and die set with some card stock as well.

The Color Burst Powders were a lot of fun to play with.  I experimented with several ways to use them and decided to mix the powder with water on my craft mat and then use a brush to add it to my wet watercolor paper.  I heat embossed my floral with Hero Arts gold embossing powder and used the resist technique.

I got a much more controlled result with this technique.  When I added the powders directly onto the wet paper, I got powerfully deep colors.  A little color burst powder goes a long way!

I loved this kit.  The sentiments all have this fun script font that is so trendy right now.  If only I could master that hand lettering technique!

The clear drops are from Studio Katia and they always add a fun touch to a card.

I used this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to create the layout of my card.

It was tempting to use the sketch to do a clean and simple floral card with one of Altenew’s beautiful florals and a small sentiment across the center, but I really wanted to play with this card kit.  I’m so glad I did!  I can’t wait to try coloring these flowers with my alcohol markers!
