I'm having fun making rainbows this month for
There are some really pretty rainbow cards joining the gallery too.
To do this background, I swiped some Distress mini ink cubes on a piece
of acetate one at a time, spritzed and pressed onto mixed media paper.
I let the colors overlap a little and re-inked if the stripe wasn't bright enough.
The trick is lots of water!
I found it easier to work with the acetate than the acrylic block.
I split the panel and adhered it the two pieces on foam tape to the card front.
The die cut balloon was watercolored with Zigs and covered with Glossy Accents for shine.
I wrapped a piece of twine around the base of the balloon and taped it in the back
then glued the end under thte heat embossed sentiment.
I tried this technique more than once to get this look.
Practice, practice, practice!
I'm going to take this over to the
Craft Stampers Magazine
