Rainbow Card Challenge - Fiercely Fuschia...

Hi! I am here today with the February challenge at the Rainbow Card Challenge. Every month we have a monochromatic or rainbow-colored photo inspiration. Here is this month's pic.

I am not a very pink sort of girl. But I had fun creating the inspiration card as I got a chance to play with some new products. I used the new Shilpi Alcohol Inks for my background. The owner of Shilpi, Shilpa Kenia, was kind enough to send me some inks and Yupo paper some time back. I absolutely loved them! The colors are gorgeous and the quality is great. I can't wait to get more of these fabulous inks! Here is the card I made.

I started with a piece of Yupo paper and randomly squirted the inks. I then added some blending medium to move things and left the piece to dry. I just love the vibrant colors. Here is a closer look.

I die-cut the Framed Flower Branch out of white cardstock and adhere d it to the background. I adhered the panel to a piece of black foam cut slightly larger and adhered that to a top folding card base. The sentiment is from the Birthday Greetings stamp set by Altenew. I heat embossed it with metallic pink embossing powder. To finish, I added some half pearls from my stash. 

Here is a look at the completed card.

I am so happy with this card! I hope you find it inspiring and look forward to your creations in our gallery. Please do visit the  Rainbow Card Challenge for more inspiration and to link your cards to the gallery.  I would also highly recommend the new Shilpi Alcohol Inks. There is a whole range of products that you can check out here. Their quality is great and I am always happy to support Indian brands.
