Distress Rainbow with Avery Elle & A Blog Named Hero

Hello!  The Crafty Nurse here with another card for our Rainbow challenge here at A Blog Named Hero.

For this card I used the gorgeous stamp by Avery Elle called, “Canopy” from their newest release.  It pairs perfectly with the Hero Arts sentiment from “Enjoy Today.”

It’s been great to see all the rainbow cards shared by the designers and entered by our great followers at A blog Named Hero.  To make this rainbow background, start by white heat embossing your image then take a mini distress cube and apply it to the end of an acrylic block in a 1/4 inch line.

Then, spray the ink with a little water and apply in rainbow order of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.  I use watercolor paper for best results and try to overlap the colors a little bit for good mixing.

I hope you’ll join us at A Blog Named Hero for our March Rainbow Card Challenge!  Thanks again to Avery Elle for their collaboration this month and don’t forget to stop by and check out their new release.
