Rainbow Card

>> Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Hi Everyone,

DRS Designs has just released this beautiful Rainbow Greeting and  it inspired me to try and create a rainbow type background for this card.  I was pleased with how easy this was to do, and the best thing about it, you can't mess it up :)

I used the piece of plastic that came with my stamp-a-ma-jig and wiped it across my ink pad.  I misted it with some water from a spray bottle, and then smooshed it on a piece of paper.  I did that multiple times using all the colors of the rainbow and it gave me a cool, watercolor, rainbow-ish effect.  I took my heat gun and tried to dry it, but it ended up a bit wonky, so I ran a low iron over it to smooth it out.

I stamped, cut and layered a border onto the greeting, but it looked a little too plain.  I decided to add some butterflies using the Three Butterflies stamp, and colored them to look like a rainbow as well.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to enter our weekly challenge for your chance at winning some stampy goodness!

What a beautiful background, Karin! I adore the multi colors and random splash of color. One question...what's an iron? LOL! I usually just run them thru an embossing cycle w/o the folder, lol. An iron seems kind of like work.
