Rainbow Maker – Day 3

I’m back today with my homework card for day three of the Rainbow Maker class at Online Card Classes. The lessons for day three were presented by Cathy Zielske, Nichol Spohr, and May Park. They each presented very different techniques, so it was difficult to choose which one to use for my card. I ended up deciding to use a technique presented by Nichol.

Again, I won’t be going into a lot of detail about the actual technique since this was part of a paid class. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have caught a bit more of a sneak peek of the technique I used. I will tell you the rainbow stripes of the heart were colored with Copic markers. I went for really bright colors for this design. Here are the colors I used:

  • Red – R27
  • Orange – YR16
  • Yellow – Y15
  • Green – YG07
  • Blue – B14
  • Indigo – B66
  • Violet – V04

Here’s a close up showing just how bright this heart turned out. It’s just so cheery!

For the sentiment, I used the big hugs greeting from the Many Everyday Messages stamp set from Hero Arts. I stamped it on a 1/2″ wide strip of black cardstock using VersaMark ink then heat embossed it in white. After letting the embossing cool for a minute, I used my scissors to add a fishtail banner detail on either end.

I created a top-folding card base using heavyweight white cardstock. I adhered the heart to the card base using some thin foam squares. For the sentiment, I added a bit of tape runner in the middle where it would overlap the heart then added one of the small thin foam squares to each end then adhered it over the heart and that completed this beautiful clean and simple card.

Until next time …
