Creating cards with Color Burst

Jessica Frost Ballas combined Color Burst with Hero Arts Stamps to create two cards with very different sentiments.  The versatility of Color Burst means that no matter what the occassion you can create a fitting card.

Hi Jessica here!  It must be the week for stenciling and Color Burst powders!  I saw Ken demo the powders and stencils in some of his CHA videos and wanted to give it a try!

  I started by taping a stencil to a piece of watercolor paper and then I sprinkled various Color Burst powders randomly over the stencil.  I wanted a more abstract look so I didn't assign colors to specific areas of the stencil as he did.  Then I spritzed the paper lightly with water, let it soak for a few seconds and then blotted off the color.  

I let it air dry and then repeated the process with more powder and more water.  I did this a few times until I was happy with the variation in colors and shades!  After the panel was totally dry I trimmed it down and completed two very different looking cards with the pieces!  

I love how the sympathy card almost looks like stained glass.
