Color Burst Watercolor Leaf Tag

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a tag I created with Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst Watercolor Powders.

I started with a leaf cut from watercolor paper (using my Cricut Explore® and Sesame Street® Seasons cartridge), a water mister, and three colors of Color Burst Watercolor Powder: Alizarin Crimson, Lemon Yellow, and Orange.

I tapped a tiny bit of the Alizarin Crimson Color Burst and a tiny bit of the Orange Color Burst around the leaf die cut.

I misted the die cut with water and out came the beautiful colors!

I picked up the die cut and tilted it back and forth to cover the leaf with color.

After allowing it to dry just a bit, I started layering the die cut with more color. I added a tiny bit of Lemon Yellow Color Burst next and misted it with water.

After letting it dry just a little bit longer, I added just a bit more Alizarin Red and Orange Color Burst and misted it with water.

I then let the leaf die cut dry completely.

Once the leaf was dry, I inked the edges of the leaf with a Chestnut Roan Color Box Fluid Chalk Inkpad.

I added machine stitching for the veins of the leaf.

I trimmed the stem from the die cut and adhered it to another leaf cut from brown cardstock.

I then set an eyelet near the base of the leaf cut.

I finished the tag by adding a couple of tag die cuts, an acorn sticker, an epoxy heart sticker, and a brown stitched-ribbon bow.

I just love the deep and gorgeous color I was able to achieve on the leaf with the Color Burst Watercolor Powder.
