Rainbow Background Tutorial

Posted on: March 24, 2020

It’s easy as can be to create striking rainbow backgrounds for your cards. All you need are some ink refills, a bone folder, and a baby wipe!












Wrap the baby wipe around the bone folder and then add  6-8 drops of each colour ink refill to the wipe, creating five spots of colour. The spots will bleed into each other as they soak into the wipe.












Slide the bone folder across your cardstock to create rainbow-coloured stripes.












Experiment with different patterns and orientations.












If you’re left with any blank spots at the edges, you can trim the cardstock, or fill in with Blends or blender pen.












And finally, finish your card as desired.

Once you’ve made a card with this technique, be sure to share a photo in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!
