The next technique was creating the rainbow background by ink blending several colors of Distress Inks. I started with a piece of watercolor paper and blended the rainbow of colors using my mini ink blending tool. I then spritzed the panel with some water to make the ink react with the water and picked it up with a paper towel. This gives the panel the cool bleached spots. I then spritzed the entire panel with some shimmer spray to add some glitter.
Next I cut out the hello sentiment using the Hello You Thinlits three times and adhered the die cuts together to give a chipboard effect. I then traced the outside of the die with a pencil onto a piece of vellum and cut this out with my paper snips. This gave my sentiment the vellum background that looks like an additional die cut.
