Welcome to the Crewel & Unusual Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from the talented Anne Marie you're in the right spot. If you are starting here and are looking to join us from the beginning head to Club Scrap and see what Karen has created for you.
Today we're creating with this month's Crewel & Unusual collection. My intention was to get all crafty, sew and stitch on layouts and cards. That didn't happen. My craft room is getting new flooring which put ALL my supplies and work surfaces in the dining room. So, I could really only work in the kitchen. The kitchen is usually where I work with all the messy art supplies, so here we are: Color Bursts.
I started out by adding Color Burst powders to a dry watercolor paper panel then added water and watched the magic begin. I then stamped a clean stamp on to the wet panel picking up inks and stamping on to a dry panel. The wet panel acts as a stamp pad.
Continue to stamp repeatedly until a desired effect.
I then dried the color burst panel with my heat gun. Spray a stamp with water and stamp on the dry colored panel.
Watch as more magic happens! These Color Bursts are just amazing!
Here are some examples of cards made with these panels and the Greetings to Go kit.
My favorite part of this kit is the kraft bobbin and the "This is sew crazy" quote! I've used it many times already on cards, it's just too cute!
While I was
shopping doing research at Micheal's I came across these wooden bobbins and crochet embellishments on clearance and just had to buy them!
Thanks for hoping by. Please continue on to see what Donna has created next.
