Birch Press Design – Sending Rainbow Wishes

Happy weekend friends!!! I’m up on the Birch Press Design blog today with some bright and happy watercolor fun! Be sure to head there for the step-by-step, but here’s a look at the card and the general gist.

I stamped and heat embossed images from the Rainbow Lingo Notes and Happy Lingo stamp sets with clear embossing powder on Bristol Smooth Cardstock. Then I watercolored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

Then I inked blended a background with distress oxide inks in mermaid lagoon and tumbled glass. I spritzed the panel with water and flicked some pearl watercolor on it too.

Next, I adhered the images with a combination of foam squares and liquid glue. After the watercolor portion was adhered I thought it was lacking something. That’s when I discovered the fun “sending rainbow wishes” sentiment in the Rainbow Lingo Notes set and had to use it. I stamped and heat embossed it on black cardstock and popped it in place with a foam strip.

Voila! So bright and happy! I just love how this turned out! I also think it would be fun to color the rainbow in non-traditional, out-of-order colors, maybe with a color theme in mind too! I tend to stick to reality but sometimes it’s just more fun not to! Don’t you think?

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and found some inspiration to create something wonderful.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
