Hello there!! It has been a while since I was able to sneak in some crafting time — I started a new job two weeks ago so it has been so crazy! However I hope to at least share one project a week with you from now on. Thank you for those who checked in with me to make sure I was okay! Crafty friends are the sweetest ones out there I tell ya.

I bought this awesome stamp set from Wplus9 last month and it has been just sitting on top of my craft desk! I so wanted to use it and finally had the chance to do so. I hope you enjoy the video tutorial below! (I changed my lighting.. what do you think?)

If you know me well, I am all about keeping it clean and neat. But with these color bursts powders, I had so much fun being a bit “messy.” I think it is good to go out of your comfort zone once in a while, don’t you agree?


Another fun thing about Color Bursts is that you can automatically get different shading effects. I hardly need to fiddle around with the pigments once the powers met clean water. Let them sit for a bit, give them some time to dry. You will see amazing results!


I am sorry if you are sick of seeing so many watercolor projects from me ๐Ÿ™‚ I promise I will share other techniques soon! Watercoloring is so soothing to me, I tend to reach for it often to distress myself.

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you next week!

  1. I hope you like your new job. Anytime we hear from you is always a good time! We all do what we can, right? I happen to have 6 -7 Brusho , so I don’t think I will invest in Color Burst. BUT, I might buy the glimmery ones. They look cool! Thanks, Nicole.

  2. I don’t have the Color Bursts, but I do have Brusho powders and never thought of using them in this way. Great technique. thanks for sharing it with us. Beautiful job!
