Colourific Stamps: Make a wish on a Rainbow

Hey there, it’s so good to see you! Today’s post is very exciting as it is my first post as part of Colourific Design Team. Colourific stamps have some great stamps to choose from, check out the link at the end of the post to visit the shop. Today’s card is a lovely bright happy card using the A5 Unicorns & Chasing Rainbow set from Colourific.co.uk. I thought this card would be perfect for anyone who loves a rainbow and let’s be honest who doesn’t?! Or a great child’s birthday card! I googled if you can make a wish on a rainbow. Apparently, when you see a rainbow, you should draw a cross on the ground and then you can make a wish on the rainbow!

Make a wish on a rainbow Card Process overview

First, stamp the rainbow and two clouds from A6 Unicorns & Chasing Rainbows stamp set onto a piece of paper with versamark ink. Using polychromos pencils, colour in the rainbow adding a little shading and highlights for interest. Once complete, stamp over the rainbow again (a stamping platform is useful for this) and heat emboss. Using you scissor fussy cut these out and put to one side.

To work on the background, die cut a circle from a piece of scrap paper and use the negative piece to create a mask. Using a cloud die, die cut from a piece of card to use as a negative stencil. With a blending tool, apply Broken China distress oxide of the edge of the stencil, fading out at the top. Repeat this moving down the circle area, and blend into Faded Jeans distress oxide.

Foam mount the rainbow and clouds onto the card and add a small heat embossed sentiment. Lastly to finish off, add a few gems in rainbow order to the card.
