Happy Friday! Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the Happy Chic Wishes Stamp Set. This bold sentiment stamp set is perfect for pairing with your favorite Mama Elephant images! I used the brand new Pinata Party cuties and the new Inkon3 Fusion Inks for this rainbow happy design!

Watch the creation of this inked rainbow striped background birthday card from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The stripes for the background were created by masking off 1/2" strips on a 4" x 5 1/4" with post it tape on a smooth white background. I used the new Inkon3 Fusion Inks with blending brushes to create the bright and colorful rainbow stripe background. The colors used from left to right are My Jam Purple, Peacock Blue, Goddess Green, Bee Sting Yellow, Marigold Orange, and Marilyn Red.
A Distress Sprayer was used to spritz the inked background for a bit of distressing. The inks are reactive and will wick away, leaving some great little water spotted areas.
Greetings from the Happy Chic Wishes Stamp Set were stamped along the top half of the inked background with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder for a big, bold statement.
Images from the Pinata Party were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Coloring Ink and colored in with the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:
- Bear: Mid Brown, Oatmeal, Red, Light Carmine, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Light Green, Yellow Green, Cornflour Blue, Light Blue, Pink Haze
- Penguin: Dark Gray, Warm Gray 2, Blender, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Red, Light Carmine, Light Green, Yellow Green, Cornflour Blue, Light Blue, Pink Haze
- Pinata: Platinum Brown, Gray Tint, Blender, Pink Haze, Red, Light Carmine, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Light Green, Yellow Green, Cornflour Blue, Light Blue
- Hedgehog: Mid Brown, Oatmeal, Red, Light Carmine, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Light Green, Yellow Green, Cornflour Blue, Light Blue, Haze Blue
The images were die cut with the coordinating dies and adhered to the card as shown.
The card was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops to match the rainbow background.
