Color Bursts Stencils/Masks Techniques

Crayon Resist Coffee with Color Burst


HELLO ALL! I am here today to share a new project as part of the Ken Oliver Creative Team. Squeal! I still can’t believe it! 🙂 It is no surprise to you all that I combined my love of Color Burst with my love of coffee, right? LOL!!!! You want to know the kicker??? This card only uses ONE COLOR BURST COLOR! Just one! Look at all those colors that come to life just from the SEPIA COLOR BURST!

To create the card, I took a coffee stencil (all supplies linked below) and traced it with a white crayon (shhh, I stole it from my daughter). The wax crayon creates a resist, which I think is super cool!  I sprayed the mess out of the card panel with water and tapped on some Sepia Color Burst… Then added some more water and let it dry naturally!  The sentiment is from The Ton’s Caffeine Crush Sentiment set that I stamped onto heavy weight vellum and heat embossed with Super Fine Black embossing powder.


I think Color Bursts are amazing! They come in 12 colors right now, but a birdie told me more colors are coming soon! WOOT WOOT!

When I was making this card, I had the Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop in mind…. Today is the last day to link up your coffee/tea inspired projects!!!!
