Awesome Rainbow Eclipse

I love the look of eclipse cards, but don’t really make them very often. I’m not sure why because I always love the end result when I do. Today’s card is no exception. I absolutely love how this card came together when it was finished. Since today is also Harvey Milk Day, it seemed only fitting to share a rainbow card on my blog in his memory.

I masked off a strip near the bottom of the card front size panel of white cardstock. I used inks from Catherine Pooler Designs to create the ink blended rainbow. I used her Awesome Die for the eclipse word. To make the effect more dramatic, I die cut the word three additional times from white cardstock then stacked them all together

After I finished the die cutting, I stamped the “you are” sentiment stamps from the Autumn Blessings stamp set centered over the “awesome” using black ink. I adhered the eclipse layer to a card base created from white cardstock then adhered the stacked awesome die cut in place to create the eclipse effect. To finish off the card, I wrapped some black & white twine around the top of the card to help balance everything.
