Our Issue 124 Designer For The Day

YOU WILL NEED: Craft essentials, Distress ink pads, Alphabet dies, Alphabet stamps

1 Take 9.5cm x 14cm of white card and create a rainbow background with distress inks. Start at the top with red ink, gradually blending to yellow, green, turquoise, blue and finally, violet. Use a blending tool to merge the colours together.

2 Spritz the card with a little water to create a splashed effect in some areas. Once dry mount the background onto a 10.5cm x 15cm white blank.

3 Die cut ‘Colour’ from black card, then fix in the centre with 3D foam pads. Stamp ‘You’ above the die-cut letters with black ink, then ‘My world’ below.
