Technique Tuesday – More Color Bursting Fun!

Happy Tuesday!!! So awhile back, I did a Technique Tuesday about the Starburst Technique or Color Burst! Check it out here! Well I have TWO more ways that you can Color Burst! You know once you find a Technique, you keep playing and crazy things happen! Check it out!

While I super loved my Pink and Fabulous card, this one is probably my second favorite! I love the colors and the glimmer paper and the Technique! All you need to do is create a template. I used the cardboard piece that comes in a package of Designer Series Paper, punched out any size of Circle scrap paper and place it in the center. Then with a ruler draw lines from that center circle to the edge. Once you have all of your lines drawn, you will cut out every other section, like this:

You don’t have to worry that the center is not a perfect circle because that is where you will put your greeting or decoration on your card. Also, if you go in too far then it will be super flimsy and won’t hold up for lots of cards/projects! For the card above, I laid this template onto my card front and stamped the Festive Flurry snowflakes in Pool Party all over. Then I added thin pieces of Glimmer Paper. For the greeting, I used the Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set and Smoky Slate ink!

Now you can use this same template and do a completely different look by spritzing your card front like this one here!

Just lay your template down and spritz away with one color or many colors! I hope you have enjoyed this technique! Try it out and leave me a comment with your creation or which one you liked the most!

Happy Color Burstin’
