Flowers, Stamps & Glitters (Winner in Crafty Carmakers and More; Top 5 in Claritystamp Challenge, Yay!)

Hi All

I got truly spoilt from family and friends, so I'd like to thank everyone for the birthday greetings and presents. I had a lovely day and received a lot of crafty goodies, one of which is a pack of Color Burst. I couldn't wait to try it out and here's the project I made...


9.5" x 7" Blue Centura Card
7.75" x 5.25" Black Paper
7.5" x 5" Watercolour Paper


I randomly applied Color Burst on an A4 watercolour paper and sprayed water all over. I was surprised how much colour appeared as I didn't think there was much powders there! The random background created inspired to make this scene, using Basic Gray Archival Ink, a stamp from Wee Folk No.1, 'Remember' stamp from Word Chain No.5 and the Forest Ridge stamp on half of the A4 paper.


I used torn papers for the hills and circle paper for the sun as masks before applying dye inks with the Clarity Stencil Brushes. I used the 2nd generation technique with the Forest Ridge stamp to create a lighter image and add depth. Once I was happy with the whole image, I used Gold and Stardust Stickles.


I wanted to put something on the border so I used the Tree Branch stamp with Opaque Embossing Powder, then coloured with Spectrum Noir alcohol pen. I stuck some dried flowers and natural fibres under the flowers which were punched from the rest of the watercolour paper.


The flowers were very easy to achieve. The Pansy punched flowers; I cut a bit towards the centre where the petals join, press ball tool in the centre and curl the petals outwards. The Petite Petals and Itty Bitty flowers were just pressed in the centre with a ball tool before adding Silver Stickles.


I am very pleased with how this project turned out and love using the Color Burst. I would like to enter this to the following challenges:
