Fireworks Extravaganza!

Pop and sparkle are two things that real fireworks do when we light them. We watch them burst and expanding and there is really nothing else like it. This is why we named this craft spray Fireworks! It gives life to a project with a color and a shimmer burst that delights the eye. The following post is an extravaganza of projects from five Imagine artists. Tenia Nelson uses Fireworks! as a splatter compliment to her simple style. Roni Johnson gets creative by experimenting with Fireworks! on different surfaces. Neva Cole creates an ocean scene with die cuts and highlights how shimmer expresses the sparkle of the underwater world. Mischelle Smith brings the volume back down and uses Fireworks! as a subtle compliment.

Tenia Nelson uses Fireworks Craft Spray to add sass to this cute and simply greeting card.

Abstract Flowers by Tenia Nelson

Tenia stamped images with Memento Lilac Posies, Pear Tart, and Cottage Ivy onto white cardstock. She then stamped a sentiment with VersaMark, heat embossed and cut into a thin strip. To give the card a little pop, Tenia sprayed Fireworks! Lilac Posies, and Rose Bud onto the card as larger ink dots. Then she finished by adding the sentiment onto the card using foam dots, added washi tapes, sticker stitches and finally adhered the whole art panel onto a folded card.

Wonderful Fireworks! Canvas by Roni Johnson

Fireworks! can be applied to a project using a variety of methods. This canvas project shares 3 surfaces to create entirely different looks with each. The first technique was on the canvas base where a piece of corrugated cardstock was dipped into a pool of ink and stood up to allow the inks to gently flow down the channels of the corrugated paper. The second technique used to apply Fireworks! Spray is a sheet of Vertigo Film. The ink is sponged on the surface using an Ink Blusher. Additional colors were immediately added to the film, sponged, and blended with previous layers. The third method was used to color paper die cut foliage. Fireworks! Craft Spray can be applied to nearly any surface. Jennifer Vanderbeek uses Fireworks! to expand the visual appearance of a stamp.

Seascapes by Neva Cole

Last summer, Neva purchased a set of dies she just had to have, without really knowing when she would use them in the future. Every crafter has those shopping moments! When the Fireworks! challenge was announced, she had the perfect way to showcase both the dies and the wonderful color palette of the Fireworks! sprays with this under the sea diorama. Fireworks! can be used as watercolors with watercolor paper and a little water spray. It was so much fun to create a multilayered scene with just die cuts, Fireworks!, and a Pico Embellisher. The Fireworks! adds just the right amount of shimmer to make the fantasy come alive!

Mischelle Smith creates a cute card using Memento Luxe and Fireworks Craft Spray.

Whooo’s Your Valentine? by Mischelle Smith

Mischelle started by spraying the card front with Angel Pink Fireworks! She then cut a heart pattern paper to 3” x 3” placed on card skewed and trimmed off the remainder. She then arranged the top elements — white shimmer ribbon, white twine, a strip of pink pattern paper with polka dots and the cute little owls.

Flower Burst by Jennifer Vanderbeek

One of the downsides to stamps is their size is fixed. For instance, the main image Jennifer used in this card is a little on the small side for what she had in mind. Her solution was to spray Fireworks! close to the page, creating bursts of shimmery color, and stamping over them, visually enlarging the image. How clever?! A few swipes of Memento markers to add some details and it created a fun background for a card.
