I'm sharing a birthday card with vibrant colors today. I'm hoping that the rainbow colors will counter the Monday blues.
This card is easy to make. I've used various distress inks and the ink applicator to blend the colors onto a piece a white cardstock, then stamped "happy birthday" from Winnie and Walter in black, added a black border to this rainbow panel and finally stuck it on a white card base.
It is easy to make but I'd say it's difficult to make it nice. When it comes to adding colors onto a larger piece of paper, it's hard to blend the colors without any streaks or marks. I was told to start blending in a circular motion from the craft sheet to the card, so here, when I added the orange, yellow and green, I had to start blending from the top and bottom to the center of the panel, otherwise the red and blue from the two sides would have been contaminated by the other colors. I can't help but wondering how to achieve this effect if I were to do this on a larger piece of paper? Perhaps I should employ other medium such as stains or sprays.
I'm entering the bright birthday card to the following:
