Rainbow Party Animal

Hi there, friends! Today, I'm over on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog with this fun Birthday card! With all the madness going on around us, I needed to make a bright and fun card to uplift my spirits. I can't think of anything better than a rainbow to do just that! I snagged the new Mama Elephant release from the store, because it's just that cute!!

To begin, I used the Slimline Card Series Dies to cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to create my rainbow background. Next, I ink blended the following Distress Oxide inks from top to bottom: Picked RaspberrySpiced MarmaladeMustard SeedTwisted Citron, and Salty Ocean. I splattered some water onto my panel and some thinned out ink to create some interest to the background.
Once dry, I attached my background to a 3 1/2 X 8 1/2" white card base.

I stamped the darling critters from the Stackable Friends Stamp Set and the balloons from the Big News Stamp Set onto Bristol smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored with Copic markers.  I added highlights to my colored images with a White Glaze Jelly Roll Pen.
Then, I cut out all images with the coordinating Stackable Friends Creative Cuts and Big News Dies.

Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Stackable Friends Stamp set on the bottom of my inked background in black ink. I then arranged the cute critters, stacking them on top of each other, and attaching with foam tape for dimension. To complete my card, I tucked the balloons behind the animals and attached with tape runner.

Thanks for stopping by! Take care and be well, my friends!
