Rainbow star

Hi crafters. I started this card by swiping distress oxides in rainbow order across a piece of photo paper. I waited briefly then wiped the residue off the top with a baby wipe. I cut the piece with the Reverse Confetti tall triangles die. I played with the pieces until I decided on a star shape. I adhered them to each other in places and trimmed a couple of bits. I traced the inside with a pencil onto a card front. I then masked this area with post it notes. I stamped a greeting from the Reverse Confetti Boxes n balloons stamp set. This left some white so I applied the black ink with a sponge to the edges to cover this. I removed the masks and realised I should have masked a bit larger an area, so I used a Pitt pen to add black around the edge until it was fine with the star over it. I then glued the star down in the centre with the points free.

The colours were: wild honey, worn lipstick, abandoned coral, wilted violet, faded jeans, broken china, cracked pistachio and twisted citron.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Reverse Confetti Stock your Stash for May: Birthday

I used stamping, masking and diecutting as well as the distress oxides and baby wipes on photo paper.

    Love the beautiful rainbow colored swipes! The colors pop against the white background. Making a star by combining the triangle die-cuts is so creative! Thanks so much for sharing this CAS beauty with us at CAS Mix Up!
