1001 CARTES ON AIR - Color Bursts Background

Hi everyone! Today, I’m back with a video tutorial for Create A Smile.

This time, I want to share how to create a fun and colorful background using Color Bursts. Color Bursts are watercolor pigment powders that react with water. Here is my project:

***SUPPLIES I USED***

Stamps: Letters & Perfect Tune (Create A Smile)
Inks & other mediums: Ken Oliver Crafts Color Bursts "Orange" and "Alizarin Crimson", Black Licorice Hybrid Ink (My Favorite Things), Versamark, Copic markers, Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen
Paper: white cardstock (or watercolor paper)
Various: 3D foam pads, washi tape, white embossing powder, anti-static powder tool, bone folder, scissors, trimmer,tape, heat gun, etc.


    


          
***TIPS & TRICKS***

You can sprinkle Color Bursts onto the background and then spritz them with water. But you can also add water first and then sprinkle Color Bursts over it.

If you spritz a small amount of water, the background will be more vibrant. With more water, it will be softer.

You can always add more powder and/or water. Don’t forget to experiment and try to create multiple layers.






Don’t forget that you can share your Create A Smile creations with us! Upload them on the Create A Smile blog, right in the sidebar. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day…
