Techniques: Rainbow background

Today I’m showing you a quick way to create a rainbow background for your creations.

You will need:

  • watercolour pens
  • acrylic stamping block
  • water
  • watercolour paper or card

 

STEP 1

1.1.colouring the acrylic block1

Use your watercolour pens  to colour onto the acrylic stamping block.

 

STEP 2

2.stamping the card

Spray the coloured acrylic block with a bit of water (not too much as it will be too wet) and quickly turn it over on a piece of white card or watercolour paper. Apply a bit of pressure so that the colours will start mixing together.

Leave it for a few minutes to dry. When it looks like this you’ll know it started to dry already.
