Color Burst Background

Hello,

Here to share with you a card created using the Ken Oliver Color Burst powders. They are super simple to use and a lot of fun as well.


I sprayed a piece of watercolor paper with water and sprinkled powders from the brights collection, I believe I used the yellow shade and the crimson shade, then sprayed a bit more water and set aside to dry. A little goes a long way so it's best to use sparingly and add more if desired.
I then die cut the paper with a Sizzix-Tim Holtz mixed media thinlet die and voila, an eye catching, easy background. It takes longer for the paper to dry than it does to assemble the card ;). 
The birds are the super cute Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamps, regular size and mini. Do you need the mini? Nope, but you'll make use of them if you have them, so I tell myself to justify the purchase ;)).

A few flowers, sequins and the sentiment from the regular Bird Crazy stamp set and the card is done.
This card was created a part of Card Tag a challenge over at Scrap Shotz, they will be going up on the blog soon so keep checking in there for card challenges.sc

Thanks for taking a look and have a wonderful day!

Happy Spring!

Hello!

The sun is shining and we are in for warmer temperatures in my part of the world today.
I hope spring is on it's way to you very soon if it hasn't made it's arrival yet in your area :).

We just finished a round of layout tag over at Scrap Shotz. It's a monthly challenge we do where the first person creates their layout based on an inspiration piece and then "tags" the next person in line with their completed layout and so on.

Here's the layout I created

I used the the lovely Scrap Shotz March monthly kit for this one, it's perfect for spring photos, fresh and happy.
These birds on a wire are from the Felicity stamp set collection by Pinkfresh.
The swipes of colour were created with the new Tim Holtz Distress Watercolour Crayons. I haven't used them much yet but the colours in this set were perfect for this spring-y page. I also used some yellow under the title 'spring'.


Another round of layout tag is beginning at Scrap Shotz you click on the link to join, the more the merrier!!

Thanks for taking the time stop by.
