AAA Cards, CAS Mix Up

alcohol inks, stamping, heat embossing, die-cutting

Happy Friday, everyone! I wanted to make a happy colourful card so used my alcohol inks to create a rainbow panel. 

Using a piece of Yupo card, I drizzled a band of the first colour across the top of the card, tilting the card from side to side to move the ink around, waited until that was dry and then repeated with all the other colours. The bubble effect was created by tapping lightly with a cotton bud and some blending solution.

For CAS Mix Up (alcohol inks + stamping + your choice) and AAA Cards - Rainbow.

Oh wow, this is so pretty. I don't think I've ever seen a rainbow done in alcohol inks. It is fantastic with such stunning bright colors. Great card.

OMG Sue..I LOVE your rainbow Alcohol Ink background and how you tapped your q-tip in blending solution for your oblong bubble effect. I have not tried that. Also your CAS design by just adding your stamped and die cut sentiments is such a beautiful way to make your background the star of your gorgeous card. TFS my friend. So pleased you joined us at CAS Mix Up. Hugs.
