Rainbow of Birthday Wishes

Hello friends!
I have a fun & colorful card to share with you today:
I had so much fun putting together this colorful rainbow card!

I saw a cool technique on a video by Jennifer McGuire - CLICK HERE
I loved the concept of it and it reminds me of that childhood Fruit Striped gum, right?  LOL!  I was able to mimic what she did with the products that I had on hand.

So I've used the Whimsy Stamps Get in Line clear set for the stripes.  I continued with the second step that Jennifer did in her video with the white ink and it really does look better with it.

For the sentiment, I've used the Whimsy Stamps Painted Sayings and stamped it in black ink along with the splatter images from the same set.  I then just finished it off by layering the black card stock onto a piece of A2 sized white card base and added some sequins.

Here's a closer look at the details:


Hope you've enjoyed my card today!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Whenever I hear rainbow when it comes to Card-making my mind goes blank, but you made it look easy. But probably lots of work putting this together and it looks so cheerful and love how it is the main feature!

Shelly Schmidt said...

How beautiful and cheery. I have to hop on over to Jennifer's blog and check this out- love the sentiment and the sequins Looks CAS, but I do not think it was with all of hte lining up you must have had to do- but well worth the efforts : )

maria f. said...

A great technique and I love your little splatters to contrast with the graphic lines. Well done.

I am coming across your card months after your post. Guess what? It is still amazing! I would love to try this. I watched Jennifer's video back when you did, but I am afraid I will end up frustrated in the end. Just a little too far out of my comfort zone. You, however, nailed it!
