I placed a flower stencil over watercolour paper and sprinkled different colours of color burst powders through the openings, then (with the stencil still in place) spritzed with water. Most of it came out really nicely but I had one big unattractive muddy splotch so put my sentiment on a die cut and covered it up! Thank goodness we have die cuts!
I added little strips of black cs to the top and bottom so that I would end up with a perfect square which I popped up on fun foam on my card base.
A few of us got together at Loll Thompson's (Stamping with Loll) house on Saturday and played around with different products. We compared Color Bursts to Brushos. I own Brushos and have used them a lot. For this card, I used Shirl's Color Bursts just to try them out. My general feeling was that the two products give very similar results so if you own one already, you don't need the other. So I'll be sticking with my Brushos. I also think the Brushos are better value (more product for the money) and, if you keep them in their original containers with small holes poked in the lids, you have more control over how much powder comes out. I found that too much powder would come out of the Color Burst containers.
Thanks for dropping by.
