Lawn Fawnatics "Spectacular Skies" Challenge - Rainbow Whirl

samedi 1 juin 2019

Hi there,

I don't usually use a few supplies on my cards, you know that I like to stamp and color a lot of images to create busy scenes but this time, the sky had to be the main focus so I restrain myself.

I cut a 5,5 x 4,25 inches bristol panel and picked some distress inks in pastel tones: shaded lilac, tumbled glass, cracked pistachio, twisted citron, squeezed lemonade, wild honey, picked raspberry and spun sugar. And I took out my sponge daubers and played with the inks, applying them in a circle to get a rainbow whirl. When it was done I splattered water on the panel, dried it using paper towel, and also splattered white paint using the bottle hose for large drops and a tooth brush for tiny dots.

Because the background was in soft tones, I thought it would be nice to use a lightest color than my usual black. So I chose a brown ink which is Potting Soil by Ranger. It can be used with both alcohol markers and watercolors.

When the coloring was done, I cut the images using the coordinatings dies, and placed the images and cloud dies on my panel, just to get a general idea of the scene, I taped the dies down and sent the panel to my die cutting machine. I also cut the same clouds out of gold glitter paper that I glued behind the rainbow clouds.

I wanted the clouds to be hanging in this rainbow whirl, so I stamped strings above them using versamark ink and white heat embossed them. And my sentiment was also heat embossed using gold and white embossing powders.

Next I cut a white card base and attached my rainbow panel on it. On the cloud spots I put foam adhesive squares and attached the clouds. I adhered the ladders using liquid glue, and the unicorn and fairies were attached using foam adhesive squares. I added white highlights on the unicorn, fairies and ladders, applied clear shimmer to the unicorn's hair and fairies wings, and finally added clear sequins for more sparkles.
