Rainbow Colors can evoke such fun and thoughtful emotions. In today’s blog post, two of our artists use an array of colors to bring forward cheerful rainbow-themed projects. Kyriakos inks flower embellishments with StazOn solvent inks and Jessica uses irRESISTibles to write encourage words on rainbow color flags.
Love Yourself by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou
Look at a mirror and love what you see! Flower shaped mirrors decorate the face of this card in order for someone special like you to reflect on your specialness. Each flower is covered with a different StazOn color for a fun result. The plain white background lightly distressed with black ink brightens the card and contrasts nicely with the colored mirrors. This card would serve as a happy reminder to a friend or family member who may be going through a tough time and needs a little help remembering to care for themselves.
In the photo above, I show how I used StazOn ink to color the mirror embellishments. Simply cover the mirror pieces with an ink dauber directly from the inkpad. One coat should do the trick. It is quick and simple and transform an ordinary group of embellishments that one would find in a set or 6-pack into a festive new bundle.

Rainbow Pennant Banner by Jessica Litman
I just love adding my own special touch to pretty much anything in our home. So when it came time to create décor for my kids’ play space, I knew I needed to give it a personal touch. These rainbow pennant banners add a color with our “rules” for the play space!
Cut the felt into matching triangle pieces and arrange them in the order you wish. Using the Pico Embellisher, write one word on each pennant -“Create, Smile, Laugh, Share, Encourage, Memories, Play, Giggle, Imagine”. Allow irRESISTibles to dry. With a sewing machine, sew the pennants to the ruler-style ribbon using the spacing you desire. I chose to make the spacing roughly 2.5 inches between each individual flag piece. At this point the creating of your project is complete and your are ready to decorate. One of the nice things about a project like this is it can be as big or small as you want or as the space requires. The number of flags, the length of your ribbon and the spacing between will effect how large or small the finished project.
