OCC Rainbow Maker Stencil Ink Blending

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi All,

I’m continuing to share cards I created for OCC Rainbow Maker class. This card using a similar technique to previous days but also includes the concept of using white space to draw attention to a focal point on a card. I used a stencil to create the rainbow background and again did a bit of ink blending. I decided to go with a silhouetted plant image to keep the design elements simple.

Next, I wanted to add some texture to the card without adding any additional color (keeping the white space). I used a simple geometric pattern and dry embossed the background. That element really pulled in the shapes of the stencil together to create this card.

I didn’t include a sentiment on this card – I liked the simplicity of it and liked how it could be used to send any sentiment one would choose to use.

Here is another card using a similar technique. This time I kept the stencil to one side of the card and used a sentiment to hold the white space.

Both cards are unique and the rainbow inking really does pack a punch.

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at these projects and I’ll be back real soon with another project to share with you.

OCC Rainbow Maker Ink Blending with Stencils

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi All,

Today’s card using the technique of ink blending but this time in a double layer. The first layer was a light blending across the entire panel (which you can see in the background). I kept things soft and almost pale in comparison to my second layer of blending.

Once that layer was done I used a small dotted stencil and went over the panel once more, this time using more ink and keeping the color concentrated. When I removed the panel I was left with these results. I added a bit of water to the background once again to get some small bleached marks and then added a simple banner sentiment.

You can see the many similarities between this card and the previous day. There was only a minor change in that I added a stencil. I like the look of the stencil and feel like I may revisit this technique but next time only uses a stencil. We’ll see what kind of results that gives. Stay tuned to see!

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon with another rainbow card!
