Rainbow Challenge

Stampin' Up! Sunshine Wishes 

Over at Moving Along with the Times we've got a rainbow challenge for Team A this month.  I decided to create my rainbow with my latest favourite Stampin' Up! tool the Watercolour Pencils.  It's simple to do and you can try with your pencils on a piece of watercolour paper very quickly to make a quick, but colourful card.  

All you need to do is 'scribble' blocks of colour that overlap slightly then take an aqua painter filled with water and brush water over the pencil colouring starting at one end and moving through the colour block. The colours will merge where they meet and can create other colours and shades to create your personal rainbow.  

I've then added a die cut sentiment using gold foil card with the Stampin' Up! Sunshine Wishes dies and stamped 'hello' with the Labeler Alphabet set and added some of my favourite bling sequins and silver thread.  

Visit us at MAWTT, check out the  Design Team cards and join us for our challenge.

I hope the sun is shining on you today.

Hugs Zx

ps Quick Tip
Did you know that if you put tear tape in strips across the back of your card stock to be die cut when using small word dies like this before die cutting it makes it easier to adhere the die cut to your project.  Be sure not to remove the protective paper until after the word is cut though.

A great card Zoe and a fab sticky tip! I always use my glue pen but your idea sounds much better! Jx

Super rainbow effect on your card Zoe, and a great tip too. Intricate die cuts can be a pain to stick down. Chrisitne x
