A Penguin and a Rainbow

Hi stampers, Anni here! I am in love with Distress Inks, but who isn't? Today's card is all about creating a watercolor rainbow with Distress Inks.

I am a guest designer over at Challenge Up Your Life today and the theme of the challenge is Rainbow! I instantly knew that I wanted to use Distress inks to create the rainbow!

  • Stamp and emboss the sentiment on watercolor paper. 
  • Choose your colors! I used Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers for my card!
  • Rub the ink onto the paper with a blending tool! 
  • Spray it with water and let the inks and the water do the work!
  • Stamp, color and fuzzy cut the penguin!
  • Assemble the card!

  • Choose a image that can be colored in black and white! The rainbow background is colorful enough on its own! 
  • Black for the cardbase makes the colors pop!
  • Distress Inks blend perfectly! Look at the card: I used no orange or violett but there they are!
  • The card is done but it doesn't look finished? Faux stitched lines are an easy to do finishing element!
