Versatile Colour Splash – 3 Unique Projects

Hello everyone, Priyanka Mathur here!
 I am honoured to be the Guest DT on Itsy Bitsy’s Blog today. I am really excited to share my project with you all but first let me thank the Itsy Bitsy team (Specially Mrs. Rashmi and & Mr. Harish Closepet & the lovely co-ordinator Anitha ) for giving me this opportunity to share my creativity with these lovely color shades of “Color Splash”. Let’s begin the post! These Color Splash are available in different color shades, you can view & purchase HERE

About Color Splash – These are easy to use on paper, fabric, burlap, laces, ribbons, primed canvas, cheesecloth and any other gessoed porous surfaces. They can be used directly, no need to add or mix any medium and yes their shade can be lighten by misting with water. Easy to clean from your craft table or messy hands and quick to dry.

How are they different from Alcohol Splash?
Both the products are unique & different, it depends on the type of effect & project that one is making. Color Splash can be directly used by spraying them on the surface, they are great for paper crafting and can be even used with the paint brush to colour paper. No blending solution is required to use them. While Alcohol Splash when sprays add a vintage metallic hue to your projects due to the shiny and sparkling pigments present in the liquid. That’s why you need to shake the bottle well before using on the projects and they take slightly longer to dry as compared to Color Splash. But they blend really well to create unique effects on projects.

Here is my first projectAn Antique Mixed Media Box

Procedure – I started with a sturdy cardboard box & the following products, from Itsy Bitsy store:

 

First I mixed Little Birdie Crystal Drops, Texture Sand, Mixed Media Stones (2 tsp each) with 2 tbsp of white gesso. You can increase or decrease the quantity as per your requirement. Apply it all over the box using a flat paint brush or a palette knife. In the front of the box I have added few strips of corrugated sheets too.

Next, spray Color Splash shades all over as you like. I have used 3 colours “Berry Blast”, “Lime Splash” & “Grape Crush”. Do not dilute the colours, just spray directly all over. I added few strokes of metallic paints too in few areas (used Tinted Metallic Paints- Lime Crush & Glazed Berries) and then again few sprays of colors until a dark intense shade is achieved.

 

 

Now the interesting part… after the box is dry rub gold metallic paint (Golden Glaze shade) all over using your finger moving gently just to highlight the textures.

  
The next step is to embellishing the box. I added buttons on the lid (after rubbing same color shades) and chipboard coloured in golden shade with tiny rhinestones. I have also added some gold microbeads after mixing them with acrylic soft gel medium (All available at Itsy Bitsy).
Lastly give at least 2 coats of Decor Varnish Gloss to seal everything and to protect the surface.

 

Second Project- Layered Card (on Fall Season Theme)
 
 
I started with a normal white cardstock and sprayed two shades of color splash – Berry Blast (Red) & Lemon Zing (Yellow). Firstly spray the shade of red (use paint brush if required to spread on the edges) and then the shade of yellow the bottom of the cardstock. You will definitely have some excess colour spray on your craft mat. Don’t waste it. Take an organza ribbon & crochet white lace (both available in the store) and wipe the colour with it & your lovely ribbon is ready!  While the ribbon is still wet, crush it a bit. make some random loops leaving 3 inches ribbon on either side & make a bow.

Next, I used a script stencil & Texture Paste to add some design to the cardstock and distressed the edges with a scissor. Rubbed distress Ink- ‘Gathered Twigs’ all around the edges.

Gathered the embellishments & arranged them to get the desired look. Lastly glued everything on the base.

I also sprayed some Berry Blast Color Splash over a piece of burlap. Coloured the chipboard in black and added some highlights of red ink (using stamp pad & sponge) to the flowers.

 

 

I hope you are liking them….Here is my third project with Color Splash, A Heat Embossed Card.

Took a white cardstock & sprayed Color Splash – Lime Splash & Grape Crush.

Next, I distressed the edges and rubbed distress ink – Gathered Twigs all around the edges. Then stamped few leaves randomly and heat embossed them in shade of gold. Added some stamped script in a few areas. The background is ready.
Added all the embellishments on the card using glue. Flowers are all from the store.

 

 

So that was all for today! I hope you liked the projects and it has inspired you to create something unique of your own. Do leave your love and share your queries if any. Would love to see what you create and how you got inspired.

Love and Hugs,

Priyanka
