Hello all! Kia here with you today for Day 19 of Random Act of Cardness. Today’s word is Rainbows.

I have made 4 cards for today. I think I got a bit carried away, but I was having fun. The colours in a rainbow have all my favourite and I love using them all together, so this was an easy challenge for me.

For the card above I used the Picket Fence stencil applying distress texture paste in Crackle. After letting the paste dry I put down the stencil again and applied the colour via distress ink pads and my Life Changing Brushes. I then added splatters using 3 of the colours, being Candied Apple, Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet and I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Fantasia.

For this Clean and Simple card I am using Heffy Doodles Lighthouse which I stamped with Memento Ink, along with a technique called Pointillism and my Copic markers. I wanted the yellow to be on the top, so that is where I started. I went around adding the start of the colours on the left side of the Lighthouse.

I then added yellow to the light area of the Lighthouse at the top, along with adding yellow in the windows. I coloured the front door in the red, and stamped the sentiment using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black. A fast and easy card to make.

Yes, the colours are done in the reverse – it is what I call a stampers prerogative. I did not like the heavier colours on the right, and did not like the Lighthouse on the left. So, I did it my way. The stripes I did using my Copics and tape to measure out each of the colours.

When finished I die cut the piece with Paper Rose Pierced Rectangles die. I then die cut the red card using the same die set, and cut the piece of orange matting, attaching all together and affixing to my white card base. I then stamped the Lighthouse and sentiment using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.

For my final card today,  I came closer to a Rainbow. Using distress inks on watercolour paper I water coloured the colours, meeting the colours as I went to get some blooms happening. Once the ink was dry I stamped the Lighthouse and sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne.

To finish up I matted in black and attached the pieces to a Gina K Design Coral Reef card.

Needless to say, I had a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoy these cards as well. Following are Affiliate links to the products that I used for these cards at no extra cost to you.
