Color Bursts and Gesso

 Today I'm sharing two cards I made using one of my new Tim Holtz stencils, some color-burst powder, and gesso!

For my first card I sprinkled a bit of Ken Oliver's Colorburst (in Lime Green) onto watercolor paper, spritzed it with water and heat set it. I then laid my Lace Stencil (Tim Holtz) over the corners and applied gesso. The extra large sentiment is cut using the Sizzix letter set Nouveau and a few gold sequins accent the corners.
For my second card, I laid the lace stencil (Tim Holtz idea-ology) over my watercolor paper, tapped out a bit of lime green color burst, spritzed and then dried it with my heat gun. This simpler card has a tiny baker's twine bow across the top and the oversized sentiment in the bottom corner.
These cards were fairly quick to make and remind me of springtime when everything starts turning green again--can't wait!
