STAMPlorations GD Post - Stenciled Rainbow Cards

Happy Sunday Everyone!! 

I am so excited to be back with my another GD post at STAMPlorations blog for their Stencil Sunday post showcasing wonderful ARTplorations stencils. For today's post,  I have created three rainbow cards and the twist is... using three different coloring mediums and three different techniques. Over to my cards..

To start with, I die cut out three panels of white card stock using Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

Card 1

For my first card, I've used Art Splatters Stencil  and did simple ink blending using rainbow colored distress inks.

Once satisfied, I added the die cut sentiment using Beautiful Word Die and You & Me Phrase Die to complete it.

Card 2

I've used heat emboss resist technique to make this card. I took  Faces: Grace Stencil and applied VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using black embossing powder.

Then, I colored it using rainbow colored gelatos and kept the background subtle to highlight the image. Adhered it to matching note card and stamped the sentiment from Fond Expressions 2  stamp set to complete it.

Card 3

For this card, I first water colored the background with rainbow colors and then applied black gesso on top of  Shower of Flutters Stencil

Once dried, I added the stamped sentiment from Trendy Feathers 2 on white strips and adhered the same on card stock. I went bit overboard with this card ;) and jazz it up with silver sequins to complete it.

I hope you like these colorful rainbow cards.  My favorite is the butterfly one...
