Color Burst Snowflakes

Color Burst Snowflakes

Hi All!

I’m using my Color Burst powders today. It’s funny because I was reluctant to buy this product at first – it seemed way too messy with unpredictable results. But I’ve used them a lot, and I keep going back to use them. I would definitely classify this product as a successful purchase!

Even though these are labeled as snowflakes, I’ve used them as medallions. I think this card would also look pretty in purple, blue and green. Here is a close-up:

    I’m so glad that you used the Color Burst powders again today. I have them too but seem to keep forgetting to use them. I was even going to buy some alcohol inks by Ranger for some backgrounds but I’ve decided not to do this and to use my Color Burst powders instead. I am sure I’ll get a similar, if not better, effect. Your card is absolutely stunning and the snowflakes look like medallions to me In fact, that’s what I thought they were initially until I read your comments.

    Well Darlene, I’ve been struggling with learning how to do watercolor washes for a very long time, I never quite know how to mix the colors on the paper with a brush so I always end up with a muddy mess.
    This method of using this very concentrated pigment powders seems to be the solution for me so, I think I will give them a try.
    The snowflakes look amazing with those colors, love how delicate they look next to the beautiful and bold gold embossed sentiment.
    Another winner, my dear.
    Hugs,
    Maria Rodriguez.

      Maria, I just wanted to mention, that one key for not getting mud (even more important probably with these powders), is not to mix the “wrong” colors. Like Darlene used red, yellow, & orange here, which are considered analogous, meaning they are right next to each other on the color wheel. Blue, green, & yellow would work as well, etc. If you mix red and green (for example), which are complementary colors (opposite on the color wheel)–instant mud! Anyway, just something to keep in mind. Good luck! 🐱 ~ Andrea

    These snowflakes turned out beautifully as medallions!
    If I’m not happy with a background piece I create using the Color Bursts, I keep them specifically for cutting with outline or intricate dies…..you end up with amazing colour. But I do find it’s very easy to use too much of the powder and end up with an overall blend of all colours used.

    Darlene, it’s so nice to see snowflake dies can be used for something non-holiday/winter-themed! I love the colors in your card. Nice & warm in these cold winter days. At least, sometimes cold here in Texas! LOL Great design, too. Tfs! 🐱 ~ Andrea

    Love that you’ve turned these snowflakes into medallions! I bet you could cut off the the little stick figures/snowflake ends and it would look even more medallion-like!

    Beautiful card Darlene. A reminder that I too need to get my burst powders out one of these days. That Hello sentiment is perfect to try my new versamark brush marker to hand write it myself and then emboss it with gold powder.
