Hello, Gaylynn here. Making a set of coordinating cards is fun using Color Burst background watercolor. Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing three cards using these powders in different shades.
Color Burst background watercolor card backgrounds can be made ahead. They make great backdrops for stamping or layers.
Sentiment: Teach Love Inspire
The colors are vibrant and have bits of surprise colors when water is added. The result is different each time.
Here are helpful tips for making these Color Burst background cards. To begin, pre-cut or trim three watercolor paper background panels. Next, stamp and cut out the sentiment tag. Also, stamp three apples and color them in. Then, fussy cut (cut out) the apples. Next, onto each watercolor panel, spritz generously with water. Then, lightly tap color burst powder over the wet panel, one color per panel. The color will move. Also, spritz more water over the panel until you are happy with the look. Then, leave it to dry or heat set the watercolor. Finally, layer each card, to finish.
This is another look at the card set.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
