Rainbow Birthday Wishes

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. And, I have to admit, I’m a little nervous: I’m hostessing this month! I hope you like the challenges! Check out the latest challenge: #41 – colors (of course it would be rainbow đŸ˜‰ ).

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #41

And here is my (first) take:

by Karen @ carefree creations - Rainbow Shadows

I used a baby wipe to make a custom rainbow ink pad. To make sure I had ink in just the right amount of space, I first stamped my image on the baby wipe using a pale grey color. Then it was easy to put the refill ink exactly where I wanted it.

Here’s a photo of that:

Baby Wipe - Controlled Ink

I didn’t want to waste my baby wipe (though you can save the custom ink pads in a ziploc for a bit), so I decided to make another card.

This time I dragged the inked baby wipe down my card stock.

One thing I did on both cards was to die-cut the word birthday from white and use the “inside” pieces to help block out the background and make the text stand out more.

  1. I have never tried this technique before but your card is stunning – I may have to give it a go! – Jacqueline xx

  2. I love both of your rainbow cards. And how clever of you to replace the cutouts for definition.

  3. These are both beautiful Karen. I will have to try your technique, I love how the greeting stands out. Great job! Sorry I couldn’t make this challenge but I will be back with a take on your fab sketch next week

  4. Two excellent CAS cards – but I have to admit I prefer the bold stripes on the second card to the repeated sentiment on the first. Piecing together the word “birthday” from white and black was a clever move (and would probably try my patience if I attempted it, LOL!). Great job, Karen!
