Jill here, and this week I’ve got a bright and bold rainbow of Happy for you...
...with Mama Elephant’s Happy Script taking centre stage.
I love me some snuggly cosy winter vibes but, holy macaroni, the brighter sun & the lighter evenings creeping in have me so excited for springtime! I decided to let my lust for brighter days take over me and lead the way in this sparkly card of celebration!
I started with my watercolour rainbow, achieved by mixing Distress Ink with water and blending them in order across my background. I was feeling inspired to get messy and knew I wanted a bit of bling on my card so reached for some silver sparkly texture paste but it had all dried up so I decided to make my own...which went horribly wrong and I just ended up with a ton of grey sludge haha. ‘Waste not want not’ however so I persevered and used that along with Altenew’s gorgeous Tiny Bubbles Stencil and swiped it across my background. I then added a layer of silver glitter over the top to achieve my required look and left to dry.
I then cut Mama Elephant’s Happy from white card and foam and adhered together to form a nice substantial sentiment. I don’t think I will ever tire of die-cut sentiments. to this day these beautiful cursive Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant remain my absolute ‘Ride or Dies’ *pun intended :)
I also cut MFT’s Stitched Scallop Circle from some silver glitter card to use as a point to build around and, after white embossing the rest of my sentiment onto black card, adhered all my pieces in place.
I matted onto some grey card, embellished with a scattering of sequins, and there you have it.
A sparkly celebratory rainbow of Happy!
As always everything I used is linked below.
Hope you like it.
see you next week.
