Creative Team member Zoey Scarpelli has taken tags to a whole new level with Color Burst,  see how she has created this work of art on her blog here.

Hello Everyone! I'm Zoey and I am super excited to share with you my first projects as Creative Team for Ken Oliver!

I created this colorful tag and I had so much fun playing with the color burst!

The star is from the Ken Oliver Studio Set 1 and guess what I used to stamp it? Yes, you guessed it right... I used Color Burst! I used Alizarin Crimson and Yellow Ocher.
I have to admit that I had to try this technique few times before getting the perfect stamp because I was adding too much water - this one you see in the tag is a second generation stamp and I am truly impressed how the result is vivid!

The background of my tag is covered with tissue paper, gesso and then colored with Ultramarine Blue Color Burst. I added strips of drywall tape and covered with some more gesso before blending the Terre Verte Color Burst with the background. 





I completed the background with some more stamping, sewing machine stitch  and other little details to create some more interest!
Before assemble everything together I cut a piece of vellum and colored it with Alizarin Crimson Color Burst and I love how the transparency of the Vellum still "mix" with the background creating a fantastic Violet-blueish shade!

If you want to check out the tutorial, head over my blog!

Stay Happy Stay Creative, till next time! 
Ciao Zoey
