Bursting with colour

Hi, Sarah G here! 

I have been playing with colour bursts and wanted to try out these vibrant colours with some Uniko designs.

I white embossed the beautiful butterfly from English Country Garden and combined it with colour bursts in blue and purple:

The embossing resists the colours - I love the way that they swirl and mix when sprayed with water!  Unfortunately, I didn't have time to flatten the card after it had got wet so it looks wavy here.  It really needed a night under something heavy but you get the idea :)

I tried the same technique with the chrysanthemum stamp.  The oranges, reds and yellows give the image definition.  I combined it with a sentiment from Originally Organic.
I hope you like the combination of bright colours with the white embossing.  It makes the images pop!
Thanks for stopping by :)

  10. Sarah, did you emboss first then use the Color Bursts or the other way around? Does it matter?

    1. You must emboss the butterfly first. It's the heated embossing powder that resists the color burst.
