The Rainbow Connection

Hello to everyone who loves colour! I reckon this would brighten anyone's day.
Does anyone remember the Muppets song "The Rainbow Connection"?
Made using water based pens to make a dip-dye effect on watercolour paper.



Colour is started at the top of each panel with lighter colours and graduated the bottom of the paper is torn and ends up black.  Each panel is sliced so you get several cards from it.  And yes, I know its not in rainbow order, but I liked it this way.

Die: Simon Says
assorted watercolour  pens - Le Plume, Marvey, Whispers

Birthday Baaawk

I made this for my neighbour's birthday.  We both have chickens so I always make her some kind of chicken card.  I specially love this one, and it has another chicken inside with a greeting.  (For those who have no experience of chickens "baaawk" is  chicken chat; in this case it means "Good Grief you're 50 already!")  I love this stamp.



Image stamp: Art Impressions
Sentiment stamp: Art Impressions
Number stamp: See-Dee
Also Copics, WoS, D.Inks

I masked across the top with tape and made faded colour band.  I also masked the chicken and sponged ink.

Bicycle

The background is a technique called "Iron-off Embossing" learned from a video tutorial by Jennifer McGuire on Youtube.

I used a large background stamp, and got a 2-for-1 print from the iron-off.  It uses stamps, inks & embossing powder.  Oooh I love getting inky!


Large stamp: Hero Arts
Bicycle die: Marianne
Banner die: unbranded
Embossed sentiment: Rosie's Studio
Also: Perfect pearls mist, distress inks, pearls, ribbon, black pen doodle
