Hi there it's Nicole and today I have a rainbow halftone hearts and background card to share with you this was inspired by all things rainbow and is just a great way to tell other paper crafters card makers how much you appreciate them which i think is a really awesome idea so I am going to ink up these halftone hearts from Ulta new with two colors of distress oxide ink and I chosen the oxide inks because that they're an ink that has pigment ink in them and it works really great for this kind of technique it's the kind of rock and roll technique where you ink up with the lighter color roll on the darker color and then stamp it for two tone images in this case to tone halftone hearts which i think is a really awesome fun look this could be done with any pigment ink I just chose the oxide inks because I had them handy and they worked really great for this I like to kind of add my lighter color then roll on the darker color now I accidentally kind of got my paper wasn't exactly in the corner for that second heart so I had to start over and I just flipped my paper over and stamped them again it only took a couple minutes the other great thing about this is if you use the Misti you can stamp these images one on top of another so if you don't maybe get the whole thing covered or you need to add more of the darker color or the lighter color or whatever you can do that really easily instead of going in the traditional order I stamped my largest heart first this is where I'm going to put the majority of the greeting so I stamped that prominently first and I chose my colors for that and from there I used rainbow order so it's pink red orange yellow means blues starting over at the front of the or the beginning of the cup this strip I guess I want to say and then purples here is my sentiment from the crafty friends stamp set from altenew that I stamped with versifying black ink right on top of that pink heart it reads you add creativity to my life I'm going to go ahead now and trim down this panel to 2 and 3/4 inches by 5 and a half I'm going to set that aside and work on my background I felt like my background was a little plain I'm matting the strip on black cardstock and I was gonna put it right on the white card base and I felt like the card base just needed something so I'm taking the thank you for your inspiration greeting and I am repeatedly stamping this at a diagonal across this background panel I find stamping at a diagonal is more forgiving than stamping straight across so if you're not exactly lined up you really can't tell that much Plus my strip is going to take up most of the room so I don't really have to worry about being too perfect here and again following rainbow order and I'm using all of the colors that I used for my hearts with five colors that I used for the hearts there's ten distress oxide ink colors here I got picked raspberry candied apple spiced marmalade fossilized amber twisted citron Lucky Clover peacock feathers salty ocean seedless preserves and wilted violet very very bright kind of a skittles color type of card and I did several lines of the same color or a couple lines I guess I should say two to three lines of the same color before switching to the next and I didn't clean my stamp in between each I would just stamp it off on a piece of scrap paper to kind of clean off some of that excess ink it kind of helps with the transitioning from one color to the next there is my bright and colorful background and I'm trimming down that panel I started to earlier and then I went ahead and skipped over to working on the background and I cropped it pretty close trimming just a tiny bit of the hearts on the top and the bottom kind of helps ground it a little bit so they're not floating quite so much and then from the black cardstock I am going to trim a three by five and a half inch panel and then I'm going to take the rest of that black scrap of paper use my powder tool on it and stamp thee thank you for being my inspiration that I used for the background on that with some Versamark ink add some white embossing powder and heat set it and then trim this into a thin strip that I can adhere underneath the other greeting I really wanted it to pop and I thought it it stood out more on a separate piece of paper plus I absolutely loved the look of white embossing on black cardstock because this is such a thin strip of cardstock I'm going to put a little bit of 1/8 inch score tape on the back and adhere it underneath I am using the tonic studios Tim Holtz guillotine trimmer I've been using it for a few weeks now and I'm really liking it just snip off the excess here after I've trimmed it down I'm going to leave the just eyeball it and leave the about the same bit of cardstock along the top and the bottom this 1/8 inch score tape has really been a lifesaver for anything thin I've used it a lot lately and this stripe it looks pretty good but I think that it could be dressed up even more so what I'm going to do is take tonic studios translucent Nouveau crystal drops and I'm going
