Color Burst and Flowers

I love coloring flowers and I also love playing with colors especially when it comes to Ken Oliver Color Bursts.  The Ton has a awesome variety of floral stamps and with every release my wish list keeps growing. I’m hoping that soon, I will win the lottery or find a genie in a bottle, and then all my stamping dreams will come true!

Until then, I’m playing along with The Ton’s monthly challenge.

For my first card, I took some Bristol Smooth Paper and The Ton’s Dahlia Close Up and stamped the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in Brutus Monroe Gilded.


I took my image and an old shoe box and started adding Color Bursts (Lemon Yellow, Fushia, and Orchid) to the image and spraying with water. After each color, I allowed the paper to dry to limit the running of the colors. Once I was happy with the colors, I added some shading with my Zig Clean Real Brush Markers.

One it was all done drying, I stamped the Brushed Hugs on some paper and used my Silhouette Machine to cut out the image in some gold paper. I placed the image on pink card base added some gold twine I had in my stash.


For my second card, I used the same technique and The Ton’s Floral Border.  I wanted the center to be yellow and worked my way out similar to the card above. Again, I love the different looks you get with the Color Burst and added some shading to the flowers with my Zigs.


I wanted a simple sentiment, so I used Reverse Confetti’s Whole Lot of Happy set and embossed it in Wow’s Florida Sunset and Mama Elephant’s Birthday die cut in gold paper. I adhered the panel to yellow cardstock.


Thanks for reading and I hop you have a wonderful week!
