OCC Rainbow Maker Day 1

Hi everybody! I'm here today with homework from Day 1 with Online Card Classes Rainbow Maker. Yes, I'm taking another class...surprise, surprise! It has been a while, but I was more than ready to start some rainbow creations. We're already on Day 5, so I'm a bit behind on the homework. It's hard to do with the new addition in the family. Read on...

I feel this card's background is a little dark, but mind you I was doing this while swatting a playful new kitten off the table, snatching away the blending foams from her mouth, and trying to keep the ink away from her paws. THIS WAS A CHALLENGE!

Anyway, I was finally able to manage a few minutes to blend rainbow colors (I did start with red, but you can't tell because the orange & yellow blended in so much) on this Bristol Smooth paper and then flick some water on it.

Once the kitten went to sleep (YAY--finally!), I got out the VersaFine Black Ink to stamp the image and then heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. I did the same for the sentiment and a star. The other stars were in a pack of sequins I had, so I added some of those with a drop of Silver Stickles. If you're interested in the image, I'm afraid I have no idea where it came from. Found it in my stash!

I am somewhat pleased, but I think I may try this again with lighter colors of the rainbow. The class is a lot of fun, and I'm learning a lot even though I'm way behind on the homework.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~

(and Snuggles)


  1. Nice card! Looking forward to the rest of your creations from the class, when Snuggles will sleep.

  2. OMG!!! She is so stinkin' CUTE!!!! She must make your life interesting. I have that image too and got it before I knew we should ALWAYS know where our stamps come from. I'm thinking it might be from Inkadinkado. Anyway......I love your background, it's perfect for that image. I bet you had so much fun playing with the colors. Well done, just a great card!!!

  3. Love this card Sharon. The silhouette images on that background gives it a dreamy fantasy look. That little Snuggles is just too cute

  4. I'm amazed you get ANYthing done with that little love baby around, Sharon! She is beyond cute! I think you did a lovely job with your homework and your background is just right for the silhouette fairy! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Bwaaahahaha! I love your description of your kitty cat! This sure turned out beautifully! Love your color choices and the embossed image/sentiment!

  6. Great job - beautiful color choices!

  7. Love all the rainbow cards Sharon. Good job on your homework.


I'd love to read your comments!
