To start off I grabbed a bunch of Copic markers in light pastel colors in a rainbow theme. I used 2 of each color group.
The colors I used were:
I grabbed an A2 panel of 80lb Neenah cardstock. I started coloring about in a 1.5" width starting with the reds down the the purples & repeat until the bottom. I colored slowly to avoid stripe marks and it created a nice smooth blend.
Once I completed my vertical pastel rainbow I heat set it quickly.
Then I put it in my MISTI & I treated it with my anti-static tool & I stamped the image (Cosmos Bunch) with Versafine Onyx Pigment ink. I then added Gina K clear Embossing powder on top & heat set it.
Once that was done I took my Gina K Designs Master Layouts 1 die set and I die cut a black panel & the smaller die I used on my main panel.
I grabbed a Sentiment from another stamp set (Blooming Bunch) and I stamped it as well as heat embossing it too so it would match.
I put foam tape under the black mat and adhered it onto 100lb Desert Storm Neenah Cardstock.
I figured since I liked the design so much & everything was out Id make a 2nd card.
I wasn't sure which gems to add and I didnt want to add more bulk so I decided on Star Dust stickles & added striped accents of stickles to the floral areas,only the colored copic section. Its really hard to capture the sparkle from Stickles on camera but trust me-its FABULOUS
At the last minute I wanted to add Black splatter so I used a
Black Glaze Gelly Roll pen for that.
I like that I can add "splatter " wherever I want.
And my 2nd card I used a White cardbase.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you like this/these cards & you give this technique a go. Stay crafty my friends!
