Hi everyone! It’s Laura here, and today I am back to share with you a cute card and a very simple technique with Distress Inks, that you can use to create rainbow paint drip effect! There is also a video tutorial at the end of this post – make sure to check it out to see the step by step process for the creation of this bright and cheerful card!
I started from the background, for which I used Distress Inks in Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon. The cardstock I used is watercolor cardstock by Crafters Companion, and you will also need a Distress Sprayer and a paintbrush. Again, I included a detailed explanation of this fun Distress Ink technique in the video at the end of this post, so make sure to check it out!
Once I was done creating the background, I die cut it with the Scallop Honeycomb Cover Dies. The card base is an A2 sized panel that I cut out of some black cardstock with the Darling Ribbon&Frames Dies.
Next, I stamped one of the images from the Artsy Trimmings stamp set right on top of my background. I used Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black Ink and my Mini MISTI and then colored over the background with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. I chose markers that would match as closely as possible the colors I have on my background.
On a separate piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, I stamped and colored two more images. I chose one of the bees from the Studio Katia Honey Bees stamp set and the paintbrush from the Kobi Loves School stamp set.
I also have a color chart for you, listing all the markers I used on today’s card!
Next, I added some embellishments and some finishing touches (you will know by now that I love those!). I used the Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles and the new Tiny Iridescent Bubbles around my greeting…
…and coated the images at the top of my card with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen. I added more glitter to the Bee’s wings, antennas and to the tip of the paintbrush with some Crystal Stickles. To finish off the card, I added some Glossy Accents to the word Crafty and left everything aside to dry.
As promised, here is the video tutorial for you, sharing how to use this very easy Distress Ink Technique to create a rainbow background!
