Rainbow Inking Made Simple

Hello! It’s Jill from Jill Cameron Creations. Today we’re making rainbow inking simple. You can use this same method to create ombre effects too! Below is a super quick video to see how this card comes together and of course all of the awesome Maker Forte products are listed at the bottom of the post.

You will need a stamping tool such as a MISTI, Tim Holtz Stamping Platform, or a Stampin’ Up! Stampuratus for this technique. You’ll also need small finger time daubers.

I’m using Distress Oxide inks but you can use any inks you want. I’m using the following colors: Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemon, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, and Picked Raspberry.

Place the stamp and cardstock in the stamping platform of your choice. Ink up the sponge dauber with the first color and ink the stamp. Using a separate sponge dauber, ink up the second color and stamp. I like to stamp the colors twice so I go back and forth. This also allows for a more seamless transition between colors.

Repeat this process for each color until you’re done with all of your colors.

I inked the stamp the width of the sponge dauber I was using to help keep the width of each section of color about equal.

Next, I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle frame from my stash. I didn’t want the background (the card front) to be just white so I stamped it with Distress Oxide Pumice Stone Ink using the Believe In Background stamp.

Finally, I stamped the other sentiment in the Spell It Out stamp set in embossing ink on black cardstock then white heat embossed the image. I hope you give this technique a try.
