Rainbow Online Card Class

This card was so much fun to make!  I took some Bristol smooth card stock and a whole rainbow of inks and started blending.   I don’t have enough colors from one company to make the entire rainbow, so I thought, what the heck, I’m just going to pick out colors I love and see what happens.  And that’s what I did.

I used the Hybrid ink from Simon Says Stamp (honestly, I don’t know if they have another kind).  Red-Watermelon, Green -Key Lime, Orange- Orange Slush, Yellow- Lemon Zest

I used Premium Dye ink from Lawn Fawn.  Purple- Sugarplum, Pink- Pink Flamingo

I used Distress Ink for my final color.  Blue- Salty Ocean.

It worked!  I’m so happy about this.  I have a super bad case of gotta have it all/complete set itis, so to find out that what I already own will do the job was HUGE for me.  And not just do the job, but do the job well.

I heat set my rainbow background and then taped a Hero Arts Spiral stencil over the top of my panel.  I then took a palette knife and added Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste.  So pretty.

Stacked up the 3 butterfly die cuts from Artco to give it dimension and added the feel better soon sentiment from the Altenew Bamboo Rose stamp set.   Finished it off by adding the whole thing to a black card base.  So fun!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge 8.7.17 & Online Rainbow Card Class

Rainbow Happy Birthday Card

This card is doing double duty.  I signed up to take the Rainbow Online Card Class and my card will also work for the Monday Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Challenge.

I used only 3 distress ink colors and then did some blending to get my rainbow they are Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, and Salty Ocean.  I laid down the pink and blue colors on each end on Bristol Smooth watercolor paper and then blend the lovely yellow color in the middle to create the orange and green shades of my rainbow.  Just like I was shown in the online card class.  Easy peasy!

I then die cut the happy birthday and pieced all the little bits back onto some black card stock and cut the YOU  die cut (from My Favorite Things) and that was it.

I’m learning a TON in the online class.  If you have a chance, I would highly recommend that you take it.  So much fun!!  Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner are such a great team.  You won’t be sorry.
