HOP - Rainbow Themed

HOP - Rainbow Themed

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to our blog, to our Hop. Our Mixed Media Team is using our Brutus Monroe products to make an projects with a "Rainbow" theme!!! If you have not seen them yet, hop over here to see them in our store

We hope that you find some inspiration in the projects our team put together.

To start this project hop along, BreAnn has created a project using our products to make her rainbow inspired project:

I started this project by die cutting the Stained Glass Die from a piece of Bold Rainbow patterned paper. I used the negative and positive pieces from my die. I stamped a sentiment from Extra Sentimental on Raven Cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. 


Next up on our hop, Jeanne has used Brutus Monroe's products to do this layout:
Hello friends! This week is full of rainbows for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team. I came up with a layout feat. my grand daughter who will be turning 2yrs old this week! I had some pattern paper that had some super cute rainbow and unicorn design. I inked the edges of the "rainbow" paper, adhered that on a white sheet of corrugated paper for my base, I fussy cut the edge of the "unicorn" paper and embossed the edges. I then arranged the photos/mats where I wanted them and lightly traced where those would be and set them aside. I then used the Brutus Monroe Sherbet and Orchid Chroma Glazes and some of the Chroma Pens as well on the Jagged Heart Stencil from Brutus Monroe. I stenciled around where my photos were going.

Lots Of Hugs~ Jeanne

For our next inspirational post using Background dies Jenn created a clean and simple card:

This week our prompt was rainbows. Who doesn't love rainbows?! I have created two cards this week using the Stained Glass Die two ways!

For the black card, I inked a background to create the rainbow. Next I used black cardstock to cut the Stained Glass Die. The die cut was adhered to the inked rainbow background. I then inked a bit larger sized background to use as a matte and adhered it to my Raven Cardstock base. I love creating layers and dimension. I stamped a sentiment onto a small scrap of Raven Cardstock using Alabaster Pigment Ink and clear embossed it. To finish I added some foam adhesive to the sentiment strip and adhered it to the card front.
For the white card, I cut strips of colored cardstock and adhered them to plain cardstock. I cut the Stained Glass Die from this piece. Next, I adhered the rainbow die cut to silver cardstock and then onto my white card base. I stamped the sentiment using Raven Detail Ink and used a circle die to cut it and then adhered it to the card front.
I hope you have a great day! Stay safe and stay crafty!


This next project Nicole used our die of the month to create her card:

This week was all about rainbows and what a better way that stained glass! For today's card, I painted a piece of watercolor paper with Aqua Pigments in Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and Violet.  Once dry, I used the Stained Glass Die to cut my card front.  With the remaining colored pieces of paper, I used a butterfly punch from my stash and punched a lot of small butterflies. I glued them on the card front placing them tone on tone. Lastly, I used the sentiment from the Christopher's Shoes stamp set using three different colored inks too again match the tone on tone color scheme of the card.  Super easy and quick project and great for the first time mixed media painter! I hope you give it a try!




Our last project on our Mixed Media hop is by Liz:

I normally don't do a lot of one layer cards and wanted to give it a shot. I took my cloud stencil and used a rainbow of colors of Distress Oxides. Once that was set, I took the Flutter stamp set from Brutus Monroe and did a simple black inked image using Raven Detail Ink from Brutus Monroe. Once that set, I took this cool dragonfly glaze paint and covered the butterfly wings to give them a shimmer. I finished it off with a white paint marker.
