Happy Friday! I have created another card today with rainbow colors. I seem to never get tired of rainbows. Maybe I should keep this up and do a 7-day rainbow challenge!
For this card today, I took inspiration from Jennifer Mcguire’s faux letterpress technique. I used Waffle Flower’s Doily Circle Die and gently inked it up with distress inks in rainbow colors. Then I embossed the image onto my panel by running it through my die cut machine. The image looks like die cut inlay but it’s actually embossed (or should I say debossed?) into the panel. I love how soft it looks.
I stamped the “amazing” sentiment in bright distress inks to bring out the colors of the doily. I learned this from Virginia Lu. I actually only used 4 colors of distress inks but I ended up with 7 colors! I’m so in love with this technique now! I kept the rest of the sentiment in black.
Lastly, I finished the card with doily and sequins. Hope you enjoy this simple card today!
