Layers of the Rainbow
Topic: Online Class

We're on to day 5 of the Rainbow Maker Online Card Class.

I skipped using the lessons offered by Kristina and Laura, just completing several taught by Jennifer. These took a lot of time to dry (overnight) whitch explains the delay in posting.

For the first card we were instructed to use watercolor markers in stripes on watercolor paper, spritz with water and let blend to one side. After drying with a heat tool we used a stencil and texture mousse applied with a blending tool. I did not have any mousse so I used a palette knife to apply Heritage Handicrafts Dimensional Paint in Snow White.

Part of the directions, after completing all the backgrounds were on ways to layer white diecuts for elegant embellishments.


Technique two was to create a radiant blend using only three colors blended in concentric circles. I used a semi-glossy cardstock which made the colors more pastel. Jennifer then used glitter paste through a stencil in a radiating pattern. I had neither a radiating stencil or glitter paste so I used some modeling paste that dries semi-transparent.

The sentiment is three stacked white diecuts.


This faux watercolor is applied with Distress Inks and a blending tool then spritzed with water to allow it to blend when held to one side. After drying with a heat tool a stencil was laid on it and Versamark ink pressed through the holes. I did not have irridescent embossing powder like Jennifer used so I went with gold.

I added a white diecut panel and one of the leftover sentiment diecuts from day two.


Here's a better look at the shine of the gold embossing:

The next card starts out with a soft rainbow applied with blending tools. After thoroughly drying with a heat tool, a stencil is laid on and Versamark applied over the whole exposed surface. Mine was a reverse stencil so the Versamark actually ends up on the background. She embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder but I only had regular clear.

After cooling, another layer of Distress Ink is blended on the rainbow which darkens where the stencil covered.

I did my original rainbow with lighter colors and the ending one with brighter colors to make the distinction even more apparent. I finished off with stacked diecuts.


After finishing the lessons I had parts left over so I used them to create a bonus card.


One more day of class - I'd better go get busy.
