No-Image Card

I love it when I find stamp sets with huge & bold sentiments and Create A Smile has a few of those sets in the shop. Today, I will share with you a colourful and cheerful card that did not use any images. You can use this to make a bunch of cards to make a set and give it as a gift! Or just keep them in case you need a simple quick card to give someone.

Images are not always necessary on a card and today, I'm just sharing an idea which you could use for your future cards. 

Firstly, I stamped the sentiments from the Make A Wish set on a watercolour paper and heat embossed it in white. 

Then, I used my Derwent Inktense Watercolour pencils to create a rainbow. I start with the yellow and the brown. When you colour in the two ends, it helps you to determine how much space you have in between. 

I used this cool banner die from the Stacked Pierced Banners set to cut the sentiment panel. I thought this will make it stand out and less "boring" as to just sticking a retangular panel on the card base.

You don't need to watercolour if you don't want to. You could also use ink blending technique which would be very pretty as well!
