A Rainbow Photo Inspiration.

I have a really awesome challenge to share with you today.
This is new challenge from A Blog Named Hero.
It is a photo inspiration challenge.

When I first saw these beautiful rainbow photos, I was like YES! It was made for me! I am very excited because vibrant colours are my forte!
To make my card, I decided to mask and colour my images in rainbow colours. Here is my finished card.

Rainbow birthday card

I stamped three of the outline butterfly imaged from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Butterfly stamp set on masking paper and cut them out. Then one my card front, I stamped three butterflies at various angles and places to start with. These butterflies are the ones, that stay on the top. I covered these butterflies with the mask, then started stamping rest of the butterflies constantly masking the butterflies around and stamping to get a cluster of butterflies on the right side of the card front. I suggest you practice this on scrap cardstock before starting on the card front.

I then coloured the butterflies with copic markers in rainbow colours, starting with pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. To make the colours interesting, I have added shading in feather strokes. I absolutely love the colours. So vibrant and eye catching.

I went over the outline with a light grey marker to give the butterflies a bit more depth. Finally I white heat embossed the sentiment from Hero Arts Many Birthday Messages stamp set on to a strip of black cardstock, trimmed a edge at an angle and adhered on the card front using foam adhesives. I have finally added some glitter to the inner wing segment of the butterflies. Thats it. I haven’t added any sequins or enamel dots because I wanted the colourful butterflies to be the focal and highlight of the card.

Hope you liked my take on the challenge. Check out A Blog Named Hero for more design team inspiration. Come and play along with us.
