Color Fragments

Stampendous has this fun new product called Color Fragments. You may ask what are Color Fragments? Color Fragments are just that, bits of pure color you can glue on to any surface with any adhesive. Sprinkle them into melting embossing powders for an amazing Encrusted Jewel look. Crush with your fingers for smaller particles. I have used them on several projects and I love how they add texture, color, and a touch of whimsy to my projects.

Here is close-up view of a few of the different color fragment colors. They come in all different shades to coordinate with any project.

On this card, I used them to actually color in my butterfly after I had stamped the image.

A close-up view of the butterflies:

I applied a layer of Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry Paper Glue to the surface of the butterfly, applying it only to the area I wanted to cover with the first shade of Color Fragments. After I put the glue on, I sprinkled the Color Fragments over the glue, pressed down with my fingers, and shook off the excess. I repeated the process until the butterfly was completely colored. Because the Color Fragments are thin, you can rub off excess fragment after the glue dries. When I had finished applying all of the colors, I added a layer of Beacon Adhesives Fast Finish to give the butterfly a glossy finish.

Here is a different card, created using a mix of the new colors released in January:

On this card, I just dripped glue across random areas of the card and sprinkled a mix of Color Fragments to coordinate with the colors in the image and the paper. I love the confetti effect this creates.

On my final project, you can see I just applied it to add texture in a coordinating color:

The Color Fragments were applied after I had added a layer of Embossing Enamel around the edges of the photos. I applied Versamark ink on the cardstock and sprinkled with Embossing Enamel. I heat embossed the enamel and, while it was still hot, I sprinkled the Color Fragments into the Embossing Enamel.
