Rainbow Watercolor Birthday Backgrounds

Cathy ZielskeCards7 Comments

Today’s card project features some cheery rainbow backgrounds for my die cuts using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I am LOVING these markers right now for adding color to my cards.

This card project is pretty clean and simple at its core, but using a Swiss Dot Embossing Folder gave my card panel some lovely, elegant texture. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, but Tim Holtz also makes a Tiny Dots Texture Fade folder with a similar dot pattern. Any basic pattern will do!

Here is the video showing you how I created this birthday card project:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

    Nice! I tend toward floral cards, so I kind of struggle with cards for men. I think this one would work very well. Thanks!

    I want those pens. You and Ms Bassen make it seem like a possible thing. to have them and use them and make pretty things. I want those pens. and that waffle silicon palette thing I’ve seen used with them.

    but I also want the time and space and spoons, so….

    This did turn out so good.

    I love your cards, Cathy, and this one, like the rest, knocks it out of the ballpark! Beautiful!

    Very cute! I would rather be at home playing with craft supplies than setting in writing class. 🙂
