Color Burst trials
Today, I'm playing with making backgrounds for cards with Color Burst powder. In this first one, I used 2 colors of the powder onto wet watercolor paper. I allowed this to air dry overnight. I think too much water muted the colors and they blended more than I desired.
In the second sample, I added only one color of the powder to dry watercolor paper, then lightly sprayed it with water. There were some bare spots, so I added more powder and sprayed it again. After this, I partially dried it with my heat tool.
It looks a bit like there's some blue in the finished background, but I only added the Burnt Orange powder. Now, to try to make some fall cards from these backgrounds. Stay tuned for results.
