Hi there, Martha Lucia here! Today I have a fun project creating a Violet rainbow with your Memento Inks. This month the design team of Image is featuring the amethyst color and I decided to use not exactly violet colors but some colors from the same line.
Skill: Beginner – Intermediate
Time: 20 minutes
Most of the work in this design is coloring the background. I started with a whisper white piece of cardstock and masking tape. As you can notice on the photo my initial idea was using four colors of Memento Ink but at the end, I changed my mind and used five. The colors of Memento Ink that I used were Paris Dusk, Grape Jelly, Lilac Posies, Lulu Lavender and the versatile London Fog. By the way, London Fog is one of my favorites colors of Memento Ink because it can be used to no-line coloring and also is great for watercolor and many other techniques.
Next, I stamped the large beautiful flower stamp from Waffle Flower’s “In Bloom” stamp set. Since I used dye inks in the background, I can now stamp over the inked layer with VersaMark Ink and MBoss Embossing Powder Sapphire. To create the contrast, I stamped the “Bloom” sentiment over Whisper White cardstock with VersaMark Ink and the same color of MBoss. I fussy cut with scissors the sentiment and added it to the project using double-sided foam tape.
Thank you for stopping by!

Fab idea to add colour to a card, especially for those who may not enjoy colouring. Thanks for sharing this inspiration with these fun products.
