Rainbow Color Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight) + Birthday Giveaway (CLOSED)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS (clean and simple), Rainbow Color Birthday Card.

To make this card, I used a lovely paint brush image from 'Funny Bunny' stamp set and my favorite birthday sentiment (love that font) from 'Belated Birthday' stamp set.

I stamped the paint brush on a watercolor paper, watercolored it with Distress Inks, fussy cut it, leaving thin border around the brush and added white highlights with a white gel pen.

I cut a panel from watercolor paper and stamped the sentiment on the panel. To make stamping easier, I cut the stamp into three pieces and separated words. Then I colored a rainbow drip with a lot of water and Distress Inks, dried it with Heat It Tool and glued the panel on a top folded white card base.

I glued a foam tape on the back of the paint brush and glued it on the card. As a finishing touch, I coated the rainbow drip and color on the brush tip with a Clear Wink of Stella. Shimmery!!! :o)
