Rainbow Birthday with Pinkfresh Studio...

Hi! I am back after a short break post completing my projects for Altenew Academy. I am just a step away from my certification and super excited about it. The final challenge is conducting a workshop. I have always enjoyed teaching and I am having fun planning it. The workshop will be held in Mumbai on March 3rd. I have also started teaching CAS style cards. The card today is one of the projects we did. The technique is from the Clean, Simple and Colorful Techniques class taught by Laura Bassen for the Altenew Academy.

I started with a panel of ivory cardstock and a bunch of distress inks. I used masking tapes and did ink blending to get a rainbow background. I also added some splatters with gold acrylic paint. Here is a closer look at the blending.

While the panel dried, I used the Let's Celebrate stamp and die set by Pinkfresh Studio to create the top panel. Since the background was very colourful, I decided to keep the stamping simple. To finish I simply popped up the stamped panel with foam tape and adhered both to a top folding ivory card base. Here is another look at the final card.

I love the way this card turned out. And my student had a blast making it. I would love to make this into a shaker card too.
