Shimmering Watercolor Rainbow Hearts | by Tracey McNeely

In today’s post we are creating a card featuring a shimmering rainbow of watercolored hearts. Sometimes a beautiful and fun card can be created with the simplest of elements. The four stacked hearts have been watercolored in bold colours and each have a lovely iridescent glow from the shimmer mist that was applied after the watercolor dried.

To recreate this card you will need watercolor paper, watercolor paint and shimmer spray. Peerless Watercolors, and Birch Press Design Perfect Hearts dies from the Birch Press Design store were used for this card but you could also use the Birch Press Designs Simple Hearts dies. Watercolor four panels, one in each color of your rainbow. After the panels dried water was spritzed on the panels and soaked up with paper towel to add some distressing. This was seen in Angel Rivera’s Rainbow Heart Shaker tutorial from last week. Shimmer mist was then generously sprayed on to the panels and once again they were set to dry. Once completely dry simply die cut one of each colour using the four heart dies.

Prepare your card base and add the sentiment to the bottom centre of the front panel. Adhere the largest heart to the top centre of the card base with adhesive tape. Then adhere the rest of the hearts going down one size at a time with adhesive foam tape.

It is so easy to create fabulous cards with just this one simple set of dies.
