Holy Moley. So between the Online Card Class – Watercolor for Card Makers (Exploring Mediums) and Sandy Allnock and her Go for the Gold Class this week, I decided I had to try and play with my new and unused bottles of Color Burst Inks.
I decided to start small. I cut 2″ squares that will fit in to the coin pocket pages that I use for my sample colors. After watching the Online Card Class video today by Lydia Fiedler made me realize that I might need to samples for each – one wet on dry and one dry on wet.
So, I started out with 2″ DRY squares, puffed some ink on and then spritzed with water for the first row. For the second row, I WET each card and then poofed the ink on. I tried hard NOT to blot. I wanted it to be “natural.” Not all of the inks spread the same. It was very odd. The colors are so vibrant it’s crazy and all of them aren’t just “a color” … the Yellow Ochre has red and blue and green in it. It’s just beautiful.
Now I have to go try to make a real background for a real card. Sigh. EVERYONE should go watch Sandy in the Go for the Gold – she mixes these with different gold mediums. So beautiful.
Have a lovely day!
