Day 6 Rainbow Copic Coloring

I was completely inspired by Kathy Racoosin on this card! She took a bundle of 3 flowers and drew a rainbow on them with a pencil, then she colored in each line with a rainbow color (across all the flowers)! Brilliant!

Here is my attempt at this technique:

day-6-rainbow-flowers-copic

Guess who needs green copic markers!?!? Yep, this girl. I still like how it turned out even though I used “Putty” instead of a green color. So much fun.

Thank you, Kathy!

If you haven’t seen the Rainbow Maker Online Card Class, I highly recommend it! Had such a great time and I’m STILL making rainbow cards. :)

Supplies used:
Various Copic Markers
Paper Smooches stamp set: Friendly Flowers

Water Stencil Technique

I cannot stop making rainbow cards! Today I thought I’d try another technique stamping with water to “Bleach” the background a little.

I’m using the Ellen Hutson Bold Blooms set and the Avery Elle Fill-In-the-Blanks set (a few of my favorites!) Here’s how it turned out:

8-17-avery-elle-and-ellen-hutson

Doesn’t that look cool how the water just sort of wicks away that color?!? Here I used Distress Inks on watercolor paper. It’s a neat technique and you can try it with a stencil OR a stamp! This card is for a friend that just landed a new job. I think this card is great for that celebration.

Day 5: a Rainbow Burst Sky

I absolutely adored a card made by Jennifer McGuire in Rainbow Maker class today. I didn’t have any glitter embossing paste like she used, so instead I used a sparkly embossing powder.

After I finished the rainbow background, I couldn’t bear to cover up the gorgeousness so I used vellum for my images. You can still see some of that color through the vellum.

This hot air balloon set from Waffle Flower is a favorite of mine! Isn’t the radiating rainbow with sparkly rays so mesmerizing?! Thanks for the inspiration, Jennifer!

Day 4: Watercolor Smooshing

Today was a great day for the Rainbow Maker Class! I wanted to make every single card that was taught, and I probably still will. But for now I have an Ink Smooshing card inspired by Laura Bassen.

day-4-rainbow-watercolor

I heat embossed the sentiment (from Reverse Confetti) with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. It is difficult to tell in this picture, but in real life it’s like a muted silvery gold color. So pretty!

I added a few sequins to finish it off. Hope you like it!

Day 3: Rainbow Die Cuts (Part 5)

Well, I couldn’t resist. I had so much fun on Day 3 of Rainbow Maker and I had to make ANOTHER card (or two!) Lol. This time I was inspired by May Park and I made this card using a Neat & Tangled die:

day-3-triangle-die-hello

Of course, when I made it, I had a separate piece that I just HAD to use up, too. I’ll share that card in the next post!

Loving all the rainbow gorgeousness this week!

Day 3: Rainbow Die Cuts (Part 4)

And here’s the last rainbow die cut card I made with the negatives. This was way too pretty to let it go to waste, so I turned it into a fun cherry card:

day-3-negative-rainbow-strip-thanks

Sorry it’s a little hard to read, it says: “You’re all that and a cherry on top!”

I have quite a bit of homework to finish up, so I hope to have more rainbow cards later!

Day 3: Rainbow Die Cuts (Part 3)

Of course I couldn’t just throw out the negatives from all that beautiful Rainbow paper! So here’s one of the cards I made using the negative die cut:

day-3-negative-rainbow-strip-celebrate

(See the original card here for the positive die cut piece)

Those gem stones are really from my nail kit! Lol. They may be small, but I think they add to the festive look of this card. I have one more card to show you tomorrow!

Day 3: Rainbow Die Cuts

Today we worked on Rainbow Die cuts. Nichole Spohr showed us specifically how to cut strips of paper to use as a rainbow on your card.I started out with this on my desk:

day-3-paper-strips-rainbow

OH boy, here we go…this is a bit of work to get all lined up on a base in order to die cut. But here are my cards and I was so happy with them!

What do you think? So pretty, right?!

You can bet I used the negative of each of these for a card, too! I’ll share them as soon as I have finished them. Really loving class!
