Hello there crafty friend!
Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with inspiration for the November 2022 Kit of the Month! Today I’m sharing fun watercolored cards using Color Burst which is a fine concentrated powder colorant to be used with water on porous surfaces. A wonderful and quick way to make a great background to showcase any stamp!
For my first card, I stamped Santa with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on Canson XL Watercolor paper. Next, I used ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers to watercolor Santa, fussy cut him and then I set him aside.
Santa’s background was created with Terre Verte and Chartreuse Color Bursts. I love the texture that the bursts of color give to the card!
The trimmed background was mat with a green card stock measuring 4 x 5-1/4″. It was then adhered to a red card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ that was finally adhered to a white A2 top fold card base.
My second card and I have to say I really love the pop of colors on this one! Same steps as the first card, I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on Canson XL Watercolor paper and again used ZIGs to watercolor it.
I created the background using Ultramarine Blue and Violet Color Bursts. I then used a heat tool to help the drying process on both of the backgrounds.
Next, I adhered the panel to a purple card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. Finally, I adhered it to a white A2 top fold card base.
