Over the rainbow

Hello, dear friends! Irit is here again and this time we are going to make some colorful rainbow project using Creative Inspirations Paints.
Product list:
Creative Inspirations Paints: Garnet, Orange, Sushine, Spring Green, Royal Blue, Sapphire, Royal Purple 
Old gift card or credit card
Glossy cardstock- use a regular glossy photo paper or some special Ranger brand
Kraft cardstock
Letter stickers (MLS)
Cream cardstock (Core'dinations)
Border punch (Martha Stewart)
Colorful twine (The Twinery)
And now let's  do it:
Step 1: Add 7 big drops of rainbow colors on the top of your glossy paper piece. Drag them down using an old gift card or used credit card. Don't stop and don't go back, make it  just once if you want it look like a real rainbow.

Step 2: Make a small Kraft card with nice border using your punch, trim a cream cardstock to fit it and then trim our rainbow panel to a right size and glue it over.
Add letter sentiment and tie 7 twines over it as shown.

You can use this technique with other colors as well for backgrounds or as a piece of patterned paper, you can also stamp over it with Staz-on inks (glossy paper inks for our glossy paper). Try this technique with acryl, transparency, plastic and wood too- it works perfectly!

See you next week with another great paint technique!!
