Cardmaking with Color Burst

Dipping the distressed edges into Color Burst….. loving the way it colors the edges!

Distressing tool is a great way to rough up the edges of the Ken Oliver Craft Hometown papers.

I used a 4 x 6 piece of watercolor paper and embossed it with the  
Alterations Texture Fades; Steampunk.
then I layered in a coat of sepia Color Burst
lightly sanding gave it a worn look
and then I came back with a little more Color Burst!

Way cool technique of changing the color of my string so that it would match my paper!
Because I kept playing in the paint my paper was getting pretty wet and I accidentally tore it; so with a little more glue and Color Burst I concluded it was a happy accident, adding to the distressed look!

Yes, I blotted the excess with a paper towel!

Using Glossy Accents I attached the gears!

I mounted all of my embellishments to a 5x7 Kraft card. The finished card will tuck into the inside of a craft envelope that has a few Color Burst sprinkles along with a Ken Oliver Craft stamp.

Thank you for meeting me at Studio 52
  where serendipity moments happen!



  1. this is a fabulous masculine card! I like all the elements you used.

  2. Masculine cards have never come very easy for me, however I am pushing through! We should plan a crafting date and that be all we do is design cards unique and appealing to the men in our world! New thought we should interview a few and see what really speaks to them! Thanks again for supporting my endeavors!
