Rainbow Birthday


I'm up on the  Sweet n Sassy blog today with this bright and cheery rainbow birthday card. I started by painting a background with distress oxides on Canson Mix Media paper. (These are the colors in order from top to bottom: Kitsch Flamingo, Festive Berries, Wild Honey(mixed with Festive Berries), Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron (mixed with Salty Ocean), Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet.) 

Next I spot stamped the  Geometric Background in Yeti Ink (Lawn Fawn) and embossed it with white embossing powder. I added some white paint splatters to fill in the empty spaces.

The Chinese lanterns are from the Shine Your Light stamp set, and are stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink  and painted with distress oxides. After they were dry, I inked them up with Versamark Watermark Ink and embossed them with Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Powder to give them some shimmer. 

Last of all I stamped the sentiment from Bold Birthdays  in  Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink  and added some sequins.

This is SO pretty, Esther. Thanks so much for sharing your AMAZING art in our challenges. It's always such a blessing to me. I wish I could just sit and watch you be creative one day. I think I'd learn A LOT.
