Rainbow Hello

The Lawnscaping Challenge Blog's current theme is "Color Inspired by the Rainbow." I couldn't decide on any one color, so I just created a rainbow!

I began by die cutting a piece of 140 lb. watercolor paper with the largest of Lawn Fawn's "Small Stitched Rectangle" dies. I also die cut the "Scripty Hello" by Lawn Fawn from freezer paper. I ironed the freezer paper to the watercolor paper to act as a mask, and taped the panel to a cutting board. Then I took my Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolor paints and painted a rainbow across my panel.

Unfortunately, after drying my piece thoroughly, when I removed the mask, I discovered that the color had seeped under the "hello" considerably. I'm not sure why, but there it was. So I ended up die cutting the "hello" again from black paper, and gluing that over the "masked" area with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.

To finish the card, I matted the panel with more black paper, and adhered that to a white A2 card base. I added a coat of Glossy Accents to the "hello," and used more Multi Medium to glue on a few Sparkling Clear sequins (4mm & 6mm) by Pretty Pink Posh. I included this card in my final shipment to Operation Write Home.

I'm also entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge: "Sparkle & Shine."
