Here’s my bright and colorful card using sequins a little differently! I was inspired by the earlier Happy challenge! 🙂
I’ve recently seen a few cards online with a rainbow wash of color using zig markers and I wanted to give it a try! I started off by taping a 5×6 piece of watercolor paper to a tilted work surface. Next I scribbled a few lines of color at the top of the paper with my zig markers. Then I heavily spritzed the top of the paper with water until the color started to run down the paper. I kept spritzing until I was happy with the coverage. Then I let it air dry, keeping it tilted so the colors wouldn’t pool and would keep running down the page. (I also put a folder paper towel at the bottom of the paper to catch the drips…just a little advice) 😉
Once it was totally dry I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. Then I masked the sentiment with a little post-it tape and then taped the Hero Arts heart stencil over the watercolor paper and applied a thin layer of pearlescent embossing paste. While the paste was still wet I sprinkled glitter over the paste, tapped off the excess, and then let it dry.
While it was drying, I took a few strands of metallic silver thread and threaded varying sizes of Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins onto the thread in random groupings. Then I wrapped the thread around the top of the watercolor panel and knotted it, letting the ends of the thread drape down loosely.
