I've come to the conclusion that Color Burst powders are not a product for me. This card is not completely unfortunate, but unfortunately Color Burst powders have kicked my butt.
Here's how this card started. If you look quite carefully and with a magnifying glass, you will see the Color Burst powders. You aren't supposed to have to use very much.
I think maybe a little more is needed. Which I did add some more. The purple bottle especially seems to have more colors inside than just purple. Hmmm.
I started over with the circles shown in the first photo and the one below. But my Color Burst did not do much better at all. Well I got out my Neocolor II water-soluble crayons and did some watercolor doctoring trying to save the poor card. It was salvageable until I decided it might need a little something else. I stenciled lightly the harlequin background. I should have listened to myself when myself told me NOT to add a little something else! Will I never learn.
My daughter is getting this card anyway. She's also getting a backup supply of Color Burst powders.
