Default JUN21VSNI ~ Bursts of Color ~ Sat, June 19 - 4 PM EDT

Challenge Title: Bursts of Color
Hostess: Holly aka hbrown
Keyword: JUN21VSNI
Date: Saturday, June 19, 2021, 4 P. M. EDT

To me, fantasy worlds are always colorful. Whether we are in the forests of Narnia or swimming in the deep blue sea with mermaids or navigating our way through the imaginative worlds of Madeleine L'Engle or traversing the stars in a galaxy far far away, these fantasy worlds are full of vivid hues. I want to see your watercolored backgrounds full of wonderful colors for this challenge. Pull out your watercolor powders (Brushos, Colorbursts), watercolor paints, reinkers/dye ink pads, watercolor pencils, watercolor markers, or watercolor crayons and color away. Add your fantasy character(s) such as fairies, mermaids, unicorns, or aliens to your beautiful background and have fun!!

Just a note - we won't count the drying time as part of the 1 hour for this challenge. I know watercolor backgrounds can take some time to dry, so don't stress out trying to glue down a wet background to your card. You can work on your background first, set it aside to dry, and get the other parts of your card ready such as the fantasy character(s) or sentiments or embellishments.

There are some great watercolor tutorials here on SCS. Feel free to play with any of these techniques:

Watercolor Powders on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers
Ombre Techniques on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers
Watercolor Bleed Technique on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers
Outer Space Background on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers
Faded Water Stenciling on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers
Watercolor Powder Resist on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers
Stamping With Watercolor Powders on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers

b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose Fantasy Worlds- it's usually the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

I absolutely love using my color bursts! I make a mess of it, so I always make multiple panels when I pull them out, so this one was ready to go!

After my galaxy attempt turned into a hot mess, I kept it simple with this watercolor background and precolored image.

So, I did some big sheets and cut this out of one of them, some of them I did on lumpy watercolor paper and those ended up looking more like bursts but, the colors are so wonky. ( some did not dissolve, and on the sheet I used which I misted with water a few times trying to get the colors all the way dissolved I ended up blending it a lot) *shrugs* oh, looked like a smurf after this one too from putting the stitch lines on ha ha. Thanks Holly, JUN21VSNI Something Blue by JBgreendawn at Splitcoaststampers.
