Smooth Rainbow Background (MFT & Friends: August 2018 Release)

Hi, friends! I’m so glad to be joining My Favorite Things for their monthly feature called MFT & Friends. The design team and different friends of My Favorite Things will be showcasing the products from the August 2018 Release. I decided to work with the Friendship Rocks set to make a super colorful birthday card! 💛

In my video tutorial I’ll be showing you how to blend a smooth rainbow background with Distress Oxide inks. These inks blend effortlessly. So smooth and clean. 😍 I felt so much joy while I was creating this background. Blending with Distress Oxides has quickly become one of my favorite techniques.

Before ink blending my background, I heat embossed the stars with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from WOW! from the Friendship Rocks stamp set from My Favorite Things. Then I colored one of the girls and the mini stage with Copic Sketch Markers. I added sparkle and shine to these images with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen and a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Finally, I finished off the card with Nuvo Drops in matching colors. 🌈 I really like how those White Blizzard Nuvo Drops are transparent and let the Distress Oxides shine through.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 😊 Make sure to visit the MFT blog to see more creations. Big hugs!!!!
