Rainbow Hello–SSSC #234


Hey, everyone, it’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and Karen has another classic sketch for us today.

My card started with a Steel Gray Card Stock base on which I stamped Wood Plank Background with Steel Gray Ink. Moving up, the next element is Sweet Tooth Card Stock on which I stenciled some embossing paste with On the Diagonal Stencil, then adhered it to my base. I searched through my stash and found some Sour Apple Card Stock that had been stamped with Steel Gray Ink and Grid Background and I popped that up on foam. Next, I did some water coloring on two pieces of Ranger water color paper. For the “sky”, I did a water color wash with SU! Pacific Point reinker, then on the other piece I did a rainbow water color wash with Grape Jelly Refill, Blu Raspberry Refill, Sour Apple Refill, Lemon Drop Refill, Orange Fizz Refill, and Red Hot Refill from MFT. Using TRANSFORM-ables Say Hello Die-namics, I cut out the “hello”, adhered it to the sky, and added a few clouds from Witch Way Is the Candy? Die-namics. To see how I did the water color wash, check out my video in THIS post or on my YouTube channel.


I popped the whole thing up on foam then, following the sketch, I added three metal dots.


On the inside is a sentiment from LJD Grand Greetings, stamped with Steel Gray Ink.


And that’s it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:
