Blue Color Burst Watercolor Roses
Hello crafty friends! Lauren here, sharing this Mother's Day card that I made for my mother-in-law, who loves the color blue. I am very lucky to have a wonderful mother-in-law, and she likes to craft!
I started by heat embossing two of the "Happy Rose" stamps on to aqua pigment paper with Alabaster embossing powder. I sprinkled some of the Cornflower Color Burst powder into my palette to use as paint. I went petal by petal, first wetting the area with clean water, then dipping the water brush into the powder to pick up pigment. When the pigment touches the wet section, the color starts to "bloom" into the moisture and it's so pretty!
For the leaves I used some of the Zest and some of the Cabbage in the same way to get the yellow-green tones. After fussy cutting the roses, I splattered some white aqua pigment onto a panel of Midnight cardstock and die cut the white frame. I popped the frame up with foam tape and arranged the flowers on the side. Finally, I die cut the letters from Midnight cardstock and glued them to a strip of vellum, and trimmed it down to the banner shape.
Have you tried painting with the color bursts? Their intense concentration makes them fun to watch when they interact with water! They also happen to be on sale at the moment, so if you've been wanting to try them, now is a great time! Have a great weekend.
