For today’s card, I used a panel I created a couple of weeks ago as part of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Even though it’s not “traditional” coloring, I did some coloring with ink through a stencil to create this fun rainbow panel. I used the Weave Builder Stencil from Altenew which I just recently purchased, so this was my first time trying it.
I started by selecting a lighter and darker shade of ink in six rainbow colors. To ensure the colors would work well together, I used Altenew inks since they come in color families which work perfectly together. I adhered the stencil over a piece of white cardstock using some Therm O Web Pixie Spray.
I applied the lightest shade of each of the six inks using the Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studios. I made sure to overlap each color slightly to ensure a nice smooth blend as I worked my way up the cardstock. I then flipped the stencil over and lined it up with the previous layer then applied the darker shade shade of ink, also with the Blender Brushes.
After I had all the ink down, I removed the stencil from the cardstock. I was absolutely AMAZED by how cool it looked and all the dimension I achieved with just using two shades per color. This is a stencil I will definitely be using again!
Next, I moved on to creating a sentiment for the card. Since I planned to use this card for the June Pen Pal swap at StampNation (it’s already been received so I’m not spoiling any surprises), I decided to use the Just Because sentiment from the Heartfelt Sentiments stamp set by Altenew. I stamped it on strip of black cardstock using VersaMark ink then heat embossed it in white. I then used my scissors to add a flag end on one side.
I trimmed the panel down a bit then matted on a piece of black cardstock. I decided I wanted a bit of blink on the card as well, I adhered a thin strip of silver glitter cardstock from the Holiday Sparkle pack by Lawn Fawn. I then adhered the matted panel to a top-folding white card base. Finally, I adhered the sentiment strip and that completed the card.
I’m entering this card in the following challenge(s):
