Baby Boy Card

Hello Everyone!

I have finally gotten around to playing with the Ken Oliver Color Burst.  I had inherited the first  main colors and at the Scrapbook Expo bought the metallics.  Then I didn't do anything with them.  Boo!  So I am trying to start using stuff I have.

I will admit I was a little anxious to use them at first because the main colors are powders and there is no control as where they go.  Less than alcohol inks.  But I took a deep breath and started googling.  And here is my first card using this awesome product.

I used watercolor paper, water, and Ultramarine Blue for the base of the background.  And it was so cool!  The color is very vibrant.  Once the background dried I cut out the stork from the silhouette machine.  I love this stork!  I also embossed the background with clouds.  Because of the vertical nature of the embossing plate and horizontal nature of my card, there is space on both sides of the clouds.  But it is fine. :)

I used a metallic blue gelato for the little bag that the stork carries.  And I used pop dots to glue him down.  Then I painted the silver around the card--but not with the metallic set from Ken.  I used Golden fluid acrylics because the color is iridescent silver.

Here's a closeup.

I am linking up to the following challenges:

Cut It Up--Challenge 105 Name Game --Die Cut + use something that starts with the first letter of your first name.  My name is Katy and I used Ken Oliver's color burst. :)

Thank you for stopping by today!  Until next time my friends...have a wonderful day! :)

Wow! I love the white silhouetted stork against the blue. You usually see silhouettes in black, so this is quite different! Love it!

Thanks for putting on your thinking cap and taking on our Name Game challenge at Cut it Up!
