Hey peeps. I’m sharing a Brea Reese alcohol ink Rainbow shaker card with you today. Playing with the Brea Reese alcohol inks is so much fun. As you can tell from the pictures I’m still working my rainbow groove. I can’t help it, it makes me happy. For the cards today I laid out my Brea Reese alcohol inks in rainbow color and worked on the Brea Reese waterproof paper.
To start off my shaker card I pulled out my Avery Elle Rainbow die (which I have fallen in love with) and die cut out my rainbow. I trimmed down this piece and made sure to keep all the scraps. Placing a piece of acetate behind this piece to keep all the glittery bits we will fill the shaker with. Next I used double sided foam take to make wells for each section and filled each one with sequins. To close up the shaker, I stenciled a background using the Rays The Roof stencil from Heffy Doodle. That beautiful yellow is mustard seed distress ink.
To make the clouds at the top and bottom of my rainbow, used the Hello Bluebird After The Rain Scene dies. On one of the clouds I stamped a sentiment from the Rainbows stamp set from Avery Elle. All that was left was to add the clouds to the rainbow. To finish off the card, I took the scrap piece of rainbow alcohol ink paper and cut two thin strips. I glued these strips onto a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 piece of card stock. Once the glue dried, I trimmed this piece of paper down just a tad bit so it would fit on a card base. The card base color is fog from Simon Says Stamp. The perfect light gray for this card.
A beautiful shaker card is now complete. Look how yummy that ink looks on the rainbow. The colors blend so pretty together. I’ll be sharing another card using the left over pieces from this card on a project soon. For more projects using Brea Reese alcohol inks you can click here.
