Color Burst Flowers - Hello - Those Who Find - BD Wishes

Yogi Here today using Color Burst powders by Ken Oliver that I recently acquired - very nice. They work as well as the Brusho's, but are easier to use since they already come in a nozzle type dispenser... There are only 6 colors at this time, so it's pretty hard to make a mistake with them. I like that Brusho's have 24 colors... So between the two products, I have lots to play with...

I'm using the newest "Hello" die on the outside; a quote stamp (Always Be My Friend... 3pce set) and sentiment stamp  (10 tiny tag sentiments 10pce set) on the inside from Quietfire Design as well as an eCut (Happy Birthday) from Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store.

Side folded my white cardstock (5"w x 7"h). Embossed using Ecstasy crafts "Leaves" embossing folder.

I sprinkled the ColorCraft powders onto misted Canson Biggie watercolor paper (smoother - backside), then misted some more. Dried and stamped the flowers (AlteNew ""Floral Motifs") using Versafine Toffee" and embossing with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Fussy cut around the flowers to create the border.

Used a slot punch to thread my salmon colored narrow ribbon through.

Adhered the border to the card front, adhering the ribbon tails to the inside.

Die cut the "Hello" from a scrap section of the background. Then cut 3 more layers, coloring them with a blue Prisma colored marker, as well as the edges of the first die cut. Adhered all 4 layers together and then onto card front.

Added the large mauve rhinestones to the flower centers.

On the inside: hit the high points of the embossed background using Distress "Iced Spruce" and then with "Peeled Paint". Adhered a piece of scrap paper towel (from my Gelli print session at Artsy market...) using a glue stick.

eCut the "birthday" at 5"w from white cardstock. Colored with a black watercolor marker, then applied Versamark and embossed with "Oak Leak Olive" embossing powder - twice - to get a nice thick coat.

Masked and stamped the "wishes" (10 tiny tag sentiments ) onto white cardstock with the black, punched it out with Whale of a Punch "Butterfly", sponged using dirty sponges (raspberry & yellow), adhered to birthday word.

eCut a bunch of flowers (AlteNew Floral Motifs") from translucent vellum, stamped with versamark and embossed with Queen's Gold. Adhered to card with Glossy Accents. (if you don't have an electronic cutter, just fussy cut around the stamping...)

Stamped the quote (Always Be My Friend... 3pce set) with the Black, clear embossed. Added faux stitch lines using a Prisma Colored Marker in an olive tone.
