Hello all! I'm off today to demo Ken Oliver's Color Burst Powders at the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington, Texas, for the week. I've made lots of samples for the show, but since a few of the samples use Wendy Vecchi goodies, and her challenge for the month of June at the Make Art Challenge is "Embossing", I thought I would show them to you. They are not much, and easy to do, but they would look great on tags, cards, or even in an art journal. And...speaking of Wendy, I've had the privilege to hang out with her all week and take some awesome classes from her. How lucky am I?!!
|I used paper coasters for these. They work a lot like watercolor paper, so they were perfect. I stamped Wendy's Coneflower in Potting Soil Archival and poured different colors of her Embossing Powder on. LOVE the look!|
|Once heat embossed, I readied my palette of Color Burst Powders with a little water. These work a lot like the watercolor pastey paints. I painted in the flower.|
|To protect the image some, I rubbed it with Tim's Distress Micro Glaze. It makes a barrier for what comes next.|
|I sprinkled on a few colors of the Color Burst. A little goes a very long way as they are super concentrated. Then I misted over the coaster with water. I used a paper towel to clean away the Micro Glaze, and then added some doodling.|
|I did the same for the Rose,...|
|and the Daisy.|
If you happen to be able to go to the show, come look for me at the Millenium Marking booth. Thanks for looking!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
