Color Burst & Brushos

It's glorious in Melbourne today, so I'm sharing a brightly coloured card to match the day!

I decided to experiment with Colur Burst & Brushos (crystal powder water colours) and to my surprise, it seems that the Color Burst is even more vibrant when it dries! The puple is so amazing!
The pink colour is a mix of Color Burst and Brushos and the purple is only Color Burst.

I chose to do this on Bristol Mixed Media paper, because it is a brighter white than watercolour paper and gives more contrast.
I stamped the music script background from Kaisercraft and white embossed. Then I painted water on the card and sprinkled the powder, mixing it around a bit with a brush.  Next I die cut the Memory Craft Butterflies and Dienamics sentiment and mounted them on the card when it was dry. There are 3 layers in the sentiment.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:-
Happy Little Stampers Watercolour challenge - Anything Goes with Dies

Craft Stamper Take it, Make it Challenge -Anything Goes
