Good evening! Jess here with a colorful card for our current Rainbow Challenge! There are a few more days to get your entries in! You can find more information on the challenge here!
I love using bright colors so this was the perfect month for me! 🙂 I’ve been head over heels for my zig markers recently so I decided to pull them out for this card!
This card was a little time-intensive but wasn’t difficult to create. I stamped the background stamp on a piece of watercolor paper and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. You could also do this technique with clear embossing powder if your watercolor paper is bright white. I use a watercolor paper that tends to be a little more yellow so I wanted the bright white embossing powder.
Then it was time to color! I took a zig marker and drew a thin line across the top of each triangle. Then I used a waterbrush to blend the color across each triangle. I did one color at a time until each triangle was colored! Then I set that aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.
I stamped the sentiment onto black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered it to the watercolor panel over a tangle of silver metallic thread with foam mounting tape. I added a few sparkling clear sequins for a little more sparkle and then mounted the watercolor panel to a black frame and finally to a white card base! Definitely a rainbow of colors! 🙂
Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day!
