Pastel Hello

Hello and welcome back! Today I have a pretty pastel rainbow card to share! I've decided to play along with a few challenges today. Just Us Girls, Melissa's Fab Friday Feature, bastel-traum , Country View Challenges and Papercraft Challenges

For this card I got out some of my distress oxide inks and started blending a pastel rainbow, in no particular order, on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock using my blending brushes. I love how some of the inks blended together to make new colours! I tell ya....I don't think I'll ever go back to using my old blending tools again, now that I've been spoiled with these brushes! I then used my Cube Cover die from Altenew to diecut a second piece of white cardstock. For the hello, I ink blended the same colours and then diecut the hello a total of 5 times, including the inked one, to prop it up and give it some dimension. I then lightly blended 2 of the same colours for the ice cream cone, cut it out, added some shimmer and some shine using my glossy accents. I know realize that I should have gone a bit stronger with those on the ice cream, as they soften out a bit. The sentiment came from the same Altenew stamp set as the ice cream cone. 
To finish it off I sprinkled some sequins that matched the colours perfectly! And that's it! A perfect pastel rainbow card! Isn't it just the sweetest! I have the perfect little girl in mind that would love this!

Why not go and check out the following challenges to see some amazing creations: Just Us Girls Challenge #543 where the challenge is rainbows, Melissa's Fab Friday Feature where the challenge is to create a Hello project, bastel-traum and their challenge this time is summer, Papercraft Challenge and their Geometric challenge and then finally Country View Challenges where this month it is Do What Makes You Happy. I must say making this definitely made me happy and well, card making in general does :).
