In Dreams And In Love - A Rainbow masked card + Tutorial

Hi all!!!
I have a very refresing card + tutorial for you. I am playing along Paru's Card Making Challenges this month and the challenge is to use a masking technique. I have created the card below which is a rainbow panel using masking technique. 

Know what? You do not need many colors on your pallete to create this. I have just 4 pads of distress ink + my black archival. Those are the colors that i used to get this color blast. Since the theme was to include colors too, I felt how more apt can you get than to include as much as possible.

Take a look at the card first :)

Rainbow Card- Masking Technique

Rainbow Card- Masking Technique
Linking this this project to Paru's Card Making Challenges.

To make this card I used a piece of cardstock along with inks in Tim Holtz mini ink kit #1 [Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Peacock feathers, Picked Raspberry] .

Then I took some washi tape and masked the entire card using the strips like below.

Once I did that I peeled off first two layers and applied 'mustard seed' distress ink. Put back the first washi tape layer back in place to mask off the first yellow stripe.

I removed the third panel off and applied spiced marmalade DI over panels #2 and #3. So with just 2 colors I have got 3 color panels now. Similarly I proceeded with picked raspberry DI over panels #4 and #5.

Panel #6 is created by blending picked raspberry & peacock feathers. #8 using peacock feathers and mustard seed

#9 is the Black Archival ink that you see. Finally once all panels were inked up, I inked the edges using black ink and splattered some water to create some droplets.

Then I stamped the sentiment using Varna's stampset and distressed the edges and adhered it to the centre of the card.

I also createda  custom envelope for this card and stamped some flowers on the front suing simple paper masking.

Hope you all like this card. Do let me know how this turned out!!

Happy crafting:)
