CAS-ual Fridays Rainbows!

Happy Friday crafty friends! And it's time for the by-monthly CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! This week it's all about rainbows! This theme works for me, warmer temps, the snow is melting and it makes my heart happy like rainbows!

I picked-up some go the Taylored Expressions Inks and I decided that they were perfect for this background! I started by stamping my background using the wonderfully graphic CAS-ual Fridays Modern Petals border stamp with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink. I decided to emboss the black with Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder, you can't see it well in the picture but it leave such pretty effect. I also wanted to ensure that my black ink didn't run with the ink blending.

To blend my ink I started with Lollipop (gorgeous pink), then used Lemon Meringue and it gave me a beautiful orange when mixed with the pink, then added Cookie Monster and that gave me the green, blue green and finished with the Lollipop again which gave me the blue and the purple. It was seriously effortless and I love the effect.

I die cut my Scallop Tag from Vellum and white embossed my sentiment from Puffy Heart Love. I used clear dimensional squares (cut to size) on the back of the sentiment and popped up my tag on the panel and glued it to the card base. I used some Lawn Fawn Lawn Trimmings and Rainbow gems by Lucie's Little Things.
