Rainbow Medallion Flower Builder with Cheiron Brandon


Hi there crafty friends! It's Cheiron here and today I have a card for you using one of my favorite sets, the Flower Medallion Builder (that is on sale!! right now) and my favorite rainbow colors of Distress Inks.

I love making repeat patterns with with stamps, I find it super meditative and I hope you will try it out and see for yourself :) To make this card, stamp your center and small points in Distress Archival Ink onto Distress Watercolor cardstock. I am using Archival Inks for this part because the ink is waterproof and you don't want these center points to react with the water when you spray the colored petals. Stamp the petals around the center points in rainbow order, cleaning your stamp between each color, and go around until you have completed the rainbow twice.


Once you have completed stamping the rainbow of petals, lightly spray around the stamped petals with a Distress Sprayer filled with water and the ink will begin to react with water. Go slow at first, and add more water as needed. I used a Ranger Heat It tool to speed up the drying time. 



Once the petals have reacted to your liking, add some splatter around each petal. I did this by pressing the inks onto my glass mat and picking them up with a paint brush. I splattered each color next to the same color petals. I dried the splatter with the heat tool as well.


To complete this card, I added foam tape to the back of the watercolor panel and mounted it onto a white card base. I stamped the 'just because' sentiment from the set onto a black strip of cardstock and heat embossed it in white. As a last step, I added some dots with a white gel pen to the the dots in the center.




Hope you enjoyed this card and the fun, watery splatter look!!
