Welcome to my second project in the
You can see my first project HERE.
I decided for my second post to try using Masking Fluid with Ken Oliver's Color Burst. Why not start out with a stencil? I used the Vintage Typewriter and Jumbo Vintage Typewriter designed by Carolyn Dube.
I started by tracing letters onto the Ranger Watercolor paper and then filling them in with the Masking Fluid. Remember...the stencil is just a guide--no need to be perfect!
This is what they looked like when they were all done:
The masking fluid dried quicker than you would think so it was right up my alley! When I was done, I wet the paper and I mixed up some Color Burst. It doesn't take much to get amazing vidid color! Here is what it looked like after I put the color on with the Masking Fluid in place.
Here is what they looked like after dry. To remove the Masking Fluid you just rub it with your finger. I then erased any pencil marks that were still visible.
But what to do with them.......hummmm....a card! That's it!
Sometimes I miss my papercrafting life...okay a lot of times :)
Since I am begging for Spring to come, I thought a Pop-up Spring card was appropriate. You can see other's I have made HERE and HERE. One of my favorite card shapes :) Just Google "spring card" and you will get tons of ways to make one.
And my favorite thing about this card is that it folds flat to mail!!!!!
So what do I LOVE best about the Color Bursts.....I think these are the PERFECT travel art supply. So lightweight, no liquid and instant color when you are ready. My mind is reeling with other ideas to use them....I have one more ready now, but that will have to wait until Monday after the hop is over. See you back here then, but before you leave make sure to leave a comment (hopefully about my project) to be entered to win the StencilGirl GIVEAWAY!
