Hi there, today I have a happy rainbow card for you.
I'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Reverse Confetti and share some of their wonderful products with you. The Over the Rainbow die set totally was a must-have for me. This is such a fun set which not only can be used for rainbow skies (like on this card) but you can also use it to complete your scenes with adorable critters and more.
My next step was creating the background. I wanted something soft and easy, so I went for a simple watercolor wash. I "painted" a loose oval shape on watercolor paper, using a clean water brush, just using water, so the ink would later stay in this area and I would have a clean white border around the sky. Now, I added blue watercolor to the wet area with a paint brush and tried to create an ombré look (lighter at the top and darker at the bottom). Then, I dried the background with a heating tool and added some splatters of watercolor after the drying process.
Now, all that was left to do was glueing everything in place. I started with the rainbow and glued down piece by piece. Then, I added the clouds and the sun using foam tape. I stamped the sentiment in black and added some Icy Sparkle Crystals (by Studio Katia) as raindrops.
Have a happy fall day,
