Rainbow Wishes

Good Morning.
I've had some extra time this long weekend to make some cards which has been fun.
I am also playing along with some of the challenges at Splitcoast Stampers for their big event held every year with contests and prizes for it's members.  I just love it there and I am always inspired by the creative spirit found there.  It is such a wonderful community of people.

This was a simple card, tried to make it more masculine and fun.
I began by placing the Shattered Glass stamp inside my Misti, inked with Versamark and pressed onto my heavy weight paper.  I then clear heat embossed the image.
Next, I pressed my Distress Oxide ink pad directly onto my non-stick craft sheet.  I wet a section of my card front with water and using a paint brush, dripped the inks onto that area.  I continued around my card front adding the different colours and letting the inks run over each other.
When the piece was dry, I stamped the birthday sentiment in the center using my Misti and Archival black ink and added some Nuvo Drops.



Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

  11. I love the oxide colours you have used here Karen and the shattered glass stamp gives the effect of fractures radiating out and the sentiment is a good size to fit in the centre. It is complemented by the beautiful blue background layer and the dimension you have given the coloured layer works so well. A fabulous card. x
