This weekend, I was glued to Periscope for CHA videos. I feel lucky that I could still see a lot of stuff at home. Thank you so much for those of you who shared! For viewers, I hope you’ve been enjoying them too! It’s so exciting to see the new releases and sneak peeks. At the same time, I was itching to join in the excitement by crafting 🙂
I just got some Color Burst on Friday and I decided to play with them a bit. Color Burst is known for its dynamic, uncontrolled and vibrant look. This time, I had a crazy idea to pair it with Altenew’s flowers, which usually are more detailed and controlled. I thought it might be fun to try something that don’t make sense together and see what will happen. Amazingly, this is what I came up with.
First, I white heat embossed some Altenew Hennah Elements images on a watercolor paper. Then, I put down some color burst and started to add water. I kept adding color and water, with occasional lifting when the color got too crazy. I mainly used Orange, Lemon Yellow , Alizarin Crimson and some Pthalo Green. The process was fun and therapeutic. I really enjoyed it.
I trimmed out the area that I liked and matted it on a stitched panel for some interest. Lastly, I added the sentiment and some sequins to finish off. Everything was adhered with liquid glue because I wanted to keep things flat for the mail. The sentiment is from Altenew Super Script and I stamped it with Altenew Sea Glass ink. This card turned out so pretty!! The colors remind me of Spring.
