Effulgence notePosted: February 7, 2017 Filed under: Color Burst, Effulgence | Tags: color burst, Penny Black stamps, WOW embossing powders 13 Comments
When I was making my pink and gold love card last week I had two panels on the go. I created both using the emboss resist method along with colorburst powders. I didn’t do too much blending on this one so the patterns the powders made after I’d spritzed them remain, especially on the left hand side of the panel.
I embossed the ‘Effulgence’ stamp on hot pressed watercolour paper in clear powder then sprinkled ultramarine and violet colorburst powders over the panel. I spritzed the panel from above and watched the colour move before adding any more powder or water.
I wanted the area around the flowers to be completely covered in paint so I blended some areas with a paintbrush. Around the edges I left it abstract. The panel was very tall and thin so I ended up with a tall thin card finished with a sentiment popped up over the flower stems.

I bet you are Penny Black’s #1 salesperson! I know I have bought several stamps after being inspired by your lovely art….
I second Marilyn’s note above! 😀 You are the reason I have a lovely supply of Penny Black stamps!…and I love the photo tutorial on this gorgeous card!
The mix of blue and purple is lovely! (My purple powder is a very blue-y purple…) As an aside, Effulgence is such an interesting name for that stamp…
Mmm, I had to look up ‘effulgence’ in the dictionary; it was not in my vocabulary. I can’t say that I have popped it into many conversations but who knows, it might happen!
Heather, your comment above makes me feel better. I didn’t know what “effulgence” meant either! But I sure like it now! Beautiful card!
This is so pretty Heather and the colour combination is gorgeous using the Colorbursts and the embossed resist technique works brilliantly with this PB stamp. x
