OCC Rainbow Maker - Day 6

The last day of class was using additional ideas to make cards using rainbow colors.  I made 2 cards for this homework.  The first one is using Nuvo crystal Drops.  I only have a few so I colored the white with distress inks.

For my second card I used washi tape.  I really like this card.

This was a great  class.

OCC Rainbow Maker - Day 5

Day 5 was about using stenciling mediums.  I really liked this one!  To start I used Distress Inks to create the rainbow.  I then used a stencil and pearlescent mousse.

It's really shinny in person.  I will be making more cards using this technique.

OCC Rainbow Maker - Day 4

Today was about using watercolor to make a rainbow card.  I was really stressed out making this one.  I don't do very well with watercolors.  For this one I did the smooshing technique.

This is a 4 bar card.  It's smaller that an A2.

OCC Rainbow Maker - Day 3

Today we were to use paper to create our rainbow card.  I die cut circles from paper.  They needed something so I stamped three of the animal from Jane's Doodles Smile stamp set.  I also used the saying from this set.  I die cut the word smile 4 times and stacked them together.  

I think this turned out fun.

Create 2017 - Bonus

Thursday evening a bonus project was posted I didn't get to make my card until the weekend as I went to the Great American Scrapbook show in Arlington on Friday.

The project was to use dry embossing.  I have a ton of embossing folders but wanted to try using a background die to emboss my card.  It was really easy to do.  Here is the card I made:

I'm not sure of the card base color but couldn't find anything I liked better.
