New England Stamper: Rainbow Double Card

March 2, 2010

Rainbow Double Card

Here's a card I made for my mum. We live far apart and although we speak a couple of times a week on the phone, it's nice to send snail mail too. She recently lost her mother and things are still pretty tough for her, so I thought this might cheer her up a bit. I really hope she likes it.

Rainbow Double For Mum

The technique is called Rainbow Double. It's a Technique Junkie technique from the August/September 07 edition. The first layer is a Versmark resist on glossy c/stock - stamp the images with Versmark and brayer ink over the top. The second layer is embossed with white craft ink and white embossing powder. The hard part for me is applying the spectrum ink evenly - I'm brayer challenged!

Thanks for visiting - have a wonderful day!


  • Stamps: Garden Silhouette (Stampin' Up! - retired), Whimsical Words (Stampin' Up!)
  • C/stock: white, glossy white & chocolate chip
  • Ink: Pumpkin Patch Spectrum ink pad, chocolate chip, white craft ink, Versamark
  • Accessories: sheer brown ribbon, white embossing powder
  • Tools: brayer, heat gun, large oval punch

Wow, Ali that is one very gorgeous card, I LOVE IT! I am sure she will too since we all know that cards are much prettier in real life and when the picture looks as good as this one does the real card has to be amazing! I am going to be looking up that technique (but I am brayer challenged LOL!

Me 2. Brayers own me, I don't own them. However you are much too critical of yourself. This is positively gorgeous and I know your Mother loved it and is cherishing it at this moment. Very lovely.
