Rainbow Background Ornate Garden Thanks Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a fun rainbow background card for you.  I did a little heat embossing for a rainbow embossed resist background along with a little Stampin' Blend coloring.  But, the blend coloring wasn't with color I created a black and white image for the focal point of my card.  I wanted it to pop against the rainbow background.  Here's a look at today's card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out by taking a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock and covered it with my Embossing Buddy (which is a anti static powder tool).  Next I stamped the All Wired Up Background Stamp in Versamark ink using the Stamparatus.  Once I had the stamped I then added White Stampin' Emboss Powder all over the entire image.  I then heat set it using my heat tool.  Once I had the entire image heat set I let it cool completely before moving on to the step.

I then took post it tape and my heat embossed cardstock and taped it down to my board.  I taped from one corner to the other corner Once I had two pieces of post it tape ran from the four corners I came back and started the ink blending process.  I started out with Poppy Parade Ink on one side of the triangle and ink blended to the middle letting it get lighter as I went.  Next I came in from the other side of the triangle and came in with Mango Melody and ink blended toward the center in the same manner.  I then moved the post it tape around to cover the triangle I just created to protect the color I just put down.  And, repeated the process each time with two new colors working around until I got all the way around.  My colors were as followed starting from the first triangle; Poppy Parade & Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight & Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana & Pacific Point, Gorgeous Grape & Melon Mambo.

Next I stamped the large flower bouquet from the Ornate Styles Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black ink using my Stamparatus.  I let the ink dry for a minute before I started the coloring process.  I used the following grays and black blends to color the image.  I used Gray Granite Light & Dark, Smoky Slate Light & Dark, and Basic Black Light Stampin' Blends to color the image.  I added in the warmer gray granite to add just a little warmth into the image compared to just using the color smoky slate and basic black.  I then cut the image out using my Paper Snips and a exacto knife for the inside part of the flowers.

I got the sentiment from the Seriously the Best Stamp Set which matches the Seriously the Best Kit from the January-June Mini Catalog.  I stamped the large thanks in versamark ink onto Basic Black Cardstock.  I added white stampin' emboss powder and heat set it.  Once cooled I used my paper snips and created a shadow around the word.  I then added some of the Basic Black Shimmery Ribbon to the card front, and placed the black and white bouquet over the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then added the thanks that I cut out over the bouquet with stampin' dimensionals.

I finished off the card by adding a few of the iridescent sequins from the Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins.  I then added the card front onto a Basic Black 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 basic black mat before adding it to my 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Thick Whisper White card base.  Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonderful day.  

Happy Stampin'
