Rainbows of Congratulations

Ok. I've spent the last three days trying to get the card in my head on paper. I've tried many techniques using Blendabilities, reinkers, aquapainters, rubbing alcohol, Whisper White, Crepe Filter Paper, Watercolor Paper, tissue paper, embossing powder,  Basic Black. I tried tye dye four ways, watercolor drips, and more. It was all to get the background I wanted for this card: 

In the end, I went with my first idea. Crazy, right?

Stamps: Bravo
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Gold Foil Paper, and Watercolor Paper
Ink: Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Elegant Eggplant, Wild Wasabi, Gold Encore Ink
Accessories: Project Life Corner Rounder, Stars Framlits, Gold Sequin Ribbon, Gold Embossing Powder, Aquapainters

I wanted a fun card to celebrate. I also wanted a rainbow of colors-either a tye-dye look or a watercolor look. I needed bold colors, so I went to the brightest colors I knew. I used aquapainters dabbed in reinker drops. I then brushed it on my cardstock adding water from the aquapainter! Easy. 

Next, I embossed my words on the cardstock using Gold Embossing Powder stuck to Gold Encore Ink. Finally, I cut out the star window. 

I assembled my card and added the gold foil behind the window and some sequins from the gold trim.

Fun and Easy. I hope my fellow swappers love it!

Happy Stamping!
