VIDEO: How to create a Rainbow Watercolor Wash Technique

CARD

Today’s amazing rainbow in the clouds “wow” card is part 2 in my 2 part series on Watercolor Wash background techniques (click for the first card). The rainbow is created with 7 different ink pads, and it’s so easy to do. Going outside the box with the Tree Builder punch, turning trees into clouds.

I used the Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration Hello stamp set, which is only available until February 15, 2016. Click for more details on  2016 Sale-a-bration (click here). If you are watching this after Feb. 15, check out my alternate stamp set suggestions below. Inspired by Eimer Carvill.

Tip: I forgot to use the emboss buddy before stamping the words on the video. This step prevents excess emboss powder sticking where you don’t want it. My final example had a few flecks because I missed this step.
