Hey crafty friends! I’m sharing a fun birthday Rainbow-inspired card today featuring the adorable little mouse from Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Bubbles Sentiment stamp set.
My intention was to create a mouse holding a balloon for a fun Rainbow birthday card. I started by arranging the images in my Misti since I would be repeat stamping, then I stamped out the image several times. Next, using a Copic-friendly black marker, I drew a line connecting the images to create a string for the balloon.
Copic Marker Combination
Pink Mouse/Balloon: RV66, RV55, RV52, RV10, RV00 (On Balloon)
Green Mouse/Balloon: YG17, YG06, YG03, YG01, YG00
Blue Mouse/Balloon: BG07, BG05, BG02, BG01, BG000
Yellow Mouse/Balloon: Y38, Y18, Y15, Y13, Y11
Orange Mouse/Balloon: YR09, YR07, YR04, YR02, YR01
For the background, I decided to create a rainbow watercolor smooshing look. Using a piece of acetate, I smooshed the ink onto white cardstock and added additional water droplets with a clean brush. I used Kitch Flamingo, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, Mustard Seed, and Carved Pumpkin to create the background. When I was happy with the background, I set the entire panel to completely dry.
I used the Scalloped Slimline with Hearts in Landscape die to die-cut a piece of black cardstock. I layered the die-cut on a piece of slate gray cardstock and stamped out the sentiment. To create a little interest to the background, I created a stencil by die-cutting cardstock with the Polka Heart Backdrop by Lawn Fawn and ink blending an bolder colors of Distress Oxide ink. Finally, I added the watercolor panel with foam adhesive to layered cardstock.
I have a speed coloring video on my Instagram for you to check out if you’re interested, where I share how I colored one of the images. As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
