Second Brusho Rainbow Card

If you saw my last post here you know I've been playing with stencils and Brushos. For my first card, I sprinkled Brushos through the Retro Circles stencil. But after creating that card, I had a stencil which was gorgeously rainbow-coloured and I didn't want all that gorgeous colour to go to waste, so I smooshed it against several pieces of watercolour paper to create different rainbow coloured pieces of card. I picked my favourite of these for the background of this card. I just love the random splotchiness and how the colours have blended. I used the largest Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle die to cut my favourite part of the background and mounted it onto black card to really make the colours pop. I then die cut the sentiment using Happy Word die from another panel of watercolour paper I smooshed the stencil onto. I used much more water on that card before pressing the stencil against it, so the colours spread out and don't show the stencil outlines at all, but I thought the colours were still really pretty so I wanted to make some use of that as well. I also die cut the same word in back and layered them before adding as much shimmer as I could get out of my Wink of Stella pen. To finish the card, I stamped and heat embossed the second part of the sentiment using a stamp from Balloons And Banners. I adhered a few white sequins for a finishing touch.

That's so great that you could get a few backgrounds out of one technique! I love this rainbow-y card. Thanks for playing along with us at Inspired by All the Little Things.
