Hey crafty people, it’s Tasha and I’m back with some more inspiration to brighten your Saturday! Today I’m chasing the clouds away by ink blending a Rainbow.
As always you can see a fun Reels video of how this card came together over on Instagram, @handmadebytasha13 so be sure to check it out!
Ink Blending A Rainbow
I used the new Good Morning Sunshine layering stencils from Trinity Stamps again, along with a heap of inks from Catherine Pooler. I chose 7 pairs of ink colours, so that I would have a softer and a brighter shade for each colour of my Rainbow.
I positioned the first stencil and blended on each of the lighter shades in turn, using a bit of low tack tape to mask off the sections either side of the one I was working on.
I blended the colours using my Blending Buddy brushes, and I made sure to keep these lighter shades, well, light!
Once I finished all of the sections, I removed that stencil and positioned the second; it’s super easy to line these up because there are laser etched lines that you line up with the rays you have already inked.
This time I put a heavier layer of ink down onto the panel, but still working in rainbow order and using tape to mask off areas I didn’t want to get ink on.
Adding A Focal Image.
I decided to go for a music themed card this week, so I stamped out the cassette tape from You Rock stamp & die set onto some Neenah 80lb.
I coloured it really simply, just adding shade to give it some dimension using Cool Grey Copic Markers; C00, C1, C3, C5, C7. Then a pop of colour in the stripes.
I die cut the image and also the sentiment and musical notes included in the die set.
Assembling My Rainbow
I glued the sentiment onto the rainbow card panel and added the cassette itself using adhesive foam for some added dimension.
I spaced the music notes out, and added some black rainbow embellishments too, also from Trinity Stamps.
For a final touch, I used a white gellyroll gel pen to add some highlights to the tape and music notes.
will be back next week for more inspiration!
