Hello Beautiful * for Reverse Confetti

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. 


I started by die cutting the rainbow from seven different pieces of card stock. Sadly, the lime green looks like yellow on the photo, I should have used more like a grass green. I also die cut three clouds and two yellow pieces for the sun. 


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.

 

I had some leftover pieces from my die cutting for the card, so I used them to make a shaker tag as well. I did some more die cutting (sun and cloud) to complete my little sky. I also die cut the beautiful Scallop Window Tag twice, once with and once without the window part. It was super easy to make a shaker tag with this die set. I simply had to add some acetate for the window, foam tape at the back for some dimension and beads for the rainy shaker part. This would make a great tag to go along with the card and a happy colorful gift. For both creations I used the fun and versatile This Says It All  stamp set. 


I hope you got inspired to create something happy and colorful today. Find more inspiration on the Reverse Confetti Blog, the Designers have some awesome creations to share with you.

Have a happy fall day,
Nicole
