Making Inky Rainbow Paper with Cathy

Hi Cathy here with a fun inky rainbow tutorial. I made some cards and boxes to store them in but wanted to make a band to go around my little box. Here's how I did it:

First up I took an A3 sheet of watercolour paper and applied seven different inks directly to the paper. I mainly used Distress Oxides, except for the bright pink on which is an Artistry ink. Once I was happy with the mix of colours, I liberally sprayed water all over the page and watched the magic happen.

I re-misted a few times to get the inks to blend. The photos look very blurry but in fact that is just the ink mixing.

Once I was happy with the blend, I left the papers to dry naturally and then cut each piece up into about 8 strips which I then wrapped around my little boxes.

This is the perfect way to make your own elements for pages, cards and more... let your imagination run and have some inky fun.
