Ken Oliver Color Bursts Watercolored Technique Pieces

When I saw the Ken Oliver Color Bursts the other day, I knew IMMEDIATELY that they needed to come to mama.

Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean!

Am I RIGHT?  These little bottles of powder are SO COOL!

The color is really intense, the product is fun to play with, you get different results every time, you might even find little bursts of different colors in the bottle and they are just plain FUN!  (huh?  did I already say that?)

After making the technique pieces, I got busy…for the blue background, I decided on the intricate Toulouse Background die cut out of sparkly goodness, and kept the rest of the card very simple.

Color Bursts Ken Oliver My second card wasn’t quite as simple (though it’s still simple!).

I actually made the blue and purple and yellow and orange technique piece the other day when I barely had the Color Burst Powders out of the package!  (You may have seen my video on Facebook or Instagram!)

I cut it out with the Dots Die by Penny Black (some painter’s tape on the back kept some of the circle punch outs in place), added a flower, a banner sentiment and a fun stitched look background.

As far as I can tell these cool little powders are sold out just about everywhere right now – I do see 4 out of 6 colors on Amazon right now.

A Cherry on Top has red.

    I like the second approach better – putting the powder down first and then spraying it with water. I think the burst effect is more wow that way and the colors are more vibrant. I like the speckles too. Thank you, Catherine.
