Hi there, Kathy here with Imagine Crafts with a new tutorial. My space is limited so by using VersaColor pigment inks, I can reduce the amount of colored card stock I need on hand.
VersaColor pigment inks are bright and bold and coupled with the Delicata Golden Glitz it’s a winning combination.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Time to Complete: 1 hour with drying time
You will need a card base measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2“. You will also need a panel that measures 4“ x 3 1/2“. I have also used the Rainbow Builder and Rainbow Accent dies from Honey Bee Stamps. You will die-cut the rainbow card and the rainbow stripes from the accent set.
Using VersaColor & Delicata pigment inks, use Imagine Crafts sponge daubers to apply your ink to the rainbow stripes. I used the Delicata Golden Glitz for the smallest stripes. Allow these pieces to dry.
On the smaller card panel I used a stencil from Simon Says Stamp called Interlocking Circles Good Luck Charm. It is a Layered Stencil but I only used two of the layers. I used a heavy amount of Delicata Golden Glitz on the squares and a light amount on the diamonds. I also used the Daubers to ink around the edges of this panel. On the front of the card panel, I splattered some gold watercolor paint. I stamped a sentiment from Pink & Main, Spring Sentiments Stamp Set onto white card stock using the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink. I used my paper trimmer to cut the sentiment to size.
Next use Imagine Craft On Point glue to adhere your stripes to the rainbow card die-cut. I used Imagine Crafts Tear-It tape to adhere the rainbow card to the stencil panel. I also used Imagine Crafts On Point glue to adhere the sentiment to the front of the rainbow. Foam tape was used on the back of the stencil panel to adhere it to the card base.
