I wish I had a lot more things and so much more with this card, but back then I was just starting out and had very limited supplies and budget.

The card was printed and I just tried my hand at coloring it. I decided to use sequins on the rainbow and glitter in the hearts. The background is blended. I know way back then I only had 3 Tim Holtz oxide ink pads, one mini blender with foam and I am pretty sure I used cheap markers as I know I had no alcohol or water color markers back then either. I remember using an eraser to try and give the background some white-ish areas with texture….. tragic I know lol…. Either way I was happy at the time with the outcome.


Printed card front – Simon Says Stamp, Random Markers with no name or number on them, sequins I believe were from the dollar store, Glitter was also from the dollar store, I used Alene’s Tacky Glue, and the mini enamel hearts may have come in the kit, I am not sure. Card Base is Recollections 80lb card.
