Watercolor Rainbow Cards

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

A couple of rainbow cards to color your weekend! =)

I stamped a "brushstroke" image (CTMH) on white cardstock, in rainbow colors.
Then, I used Distress Stains and Watercolors to add more colors.
After it dried, I trimmed the paper and punched a lace border.

On the first card, I added a flower (stamped and colored with Spectrum Noir markers)...I tried a no-line stamping technique here...
I cut it out and adhered it on card with foam tape.
I also added some Dimensional Magic Glitter - Gold on the center of the flower.
Then, I added a sentiment (Stampin'Up!).

My second card:

I stamped, colored with alcohol-based markers, fussy cut and adhered the basket with the bunny, egg and bow on my rainbow paper. The bow on the bunny has some Dimensional Magic on.
Then, I added the sentiment, with some words highlighted with alcohol-based marker.

6. Fusion: Easter (inspired by photo)
