Rainbow Kindness

Friday, May 24, 2019
Hi friends! Well, it's officially the last day of school for my boys. So summertime is here. I had some quick thank you's I needed to make and decided to combine them with this month's challenge over in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps VIP Group on Facebook. This month's theme is rainbow, and y'all know I'm all about the rainbow!


For my first card, I dropped some Hero Arts liquid watercolors onto watercolor paper, then added water to blend it down, drying in between each color. I then pulled out the gorgeous  Kindness Matters sentiment set and embossed both the kindness and the does not go unnoticed stamps in white.  A few white paint splatters and some roughed up edges, and this sweet little notecard is ready to go.


For my next card, I made another rainbow by coloring Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on watercolor paper and blending with water.  I then stamped the little flowers from and some leaf images from Bitty Blossoms and then watercolored with liquid watercolors and fussy cut.  I then sectioned off a place for them with thin black washi tape and embossed the thank you sentiment from Kindness Mattters in the center of the panel.  This panel is popped up on a foam sheet, and I bordered with more washi and a gingham bow.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful start to your weekend!

Today we are showcasing the gorgeous Henna Tattoos set. I swooned the moment I saw this set. Such beautiful detailed images, perfect for coloring or for super quick backgrounds. And strong uplifting and meaningful builder sentiments. Totally up my alley!


If you've followed me for a while, it might blow your mind to read that this is a true one layer card! I normally struggle so much with this style of cardmaking, but I had an idea in my head and the Henna Tattoos set made it so easy to achieve! I started by stamping the medium tattoo image in the upper center of my card. I then masked it off with purple tape and some copy paper, leaving enough room for my sentiment.

I then blended tumbled glass and peacock feathers with a makeup brush, light to dark horizontally. When I was happy with the blend, I peeled off the tape and stamped the Believe and in yourself sentiments on the top and bottom portions of the white space.  I then used a black pen and a ruler to separate the sections.



Next I colored the image with Copic markers, highlighting with some lacquer accents and clear rhinestones that I colored to match.  My finishing touch was to add the large tattoo image stamped off the top and bottom edges of the card in peacock feathers.  Such a fun card to make!

Here's a closer look at today's featured stamp set...
