Wanted to post the cards I worked on today before going to bed, especially since I have to get up in the morning for school. I am ready for a full week of learning and hope the students make lots of growth on their iReady diagnostic testing.
After chatting with Theresa last night, I decided I wanted to pull out my Color Burst by Ken Oliver and try using them again since it has been a while. I Googled a couple videos and found one that I thought was worth exploring...Learning How to Spritz and Sprinkle.
For the following cards I used the spritz and sprinkle techniques. After practicing for a while, I definitely favored the Sprinkle first technique. I sure did make a mess the first 5 or 6 times, but then figured out how much powder and spritzing was needed for the effect I wanted.
I primarily used the colors: Alizarin Crimson, Violet, and Ultramarine Blue (with a touch of Merlot). I had a MFT cardboard box which was perfect for the watercolor paper, powders, and mini spritzers. The box contained the micro-fine powder from flying all over my craft area.
I used MFT Blueprints 11 and 20 for the scallops and rectangle layers.
I used the MFT You Trio die set and All About You stamp set for the sentiments. A water brush and paper towel created the discolored circles. A few sequins were scattered on each card.

I am hoping to try a Resist Technique with the Color Burst and use some different colors (I noticed a lot of pink and blues lately, so maybe it is time for some yellow, orange, and/or green). Be sure to come back a few times this week to see even more at Carson's Creations.
Wishing you a wonderful week.
