Happy Colors


This is my post on the 
Classy Cards 'n Such blog today.


Hello, Diane with you today.
How is the weather where you live?
It is cold here, in the teens,
so it seems appropriate to bring a bit of sunshine to the blog
in the form of bright and happy colors.

Our challenge this week just so happens to be
Bright and Cheerful.



Nothing can produce those colors like the
Ken Oliver Color Bursts.
I used colors from both the
Earth Tone Set and the Brights Set.
Using the Spritzer Bottle, I spritzed water on water color paper,
then lightly squirted on the colors, more water, etc.,
until I was satisfied with the results.


Here is a photo to show you the effects.
(Yes, I did a second one for later use.)

Once dried, I cut flowers and leaves from
Spellbinders Romantic Blooms Three.
Black Pearls were added to the center of the larger flower.


For the background I used one of the dies from
Memory Box Distressed Windham Collection.
Then I embossed it with Crafts-Too Dots embossing folder

I finished with a pretty bow with ribbon from RRR.
Thank you for visiting with me today!

Entering the following challenges:
Crafty Catz ... Flowers

Those Color Bursts remind me of the old tie dye days. Very colorful and pretty! They give a fabulous look when die cut. Love your die cut and embossed background, too!
