Hello rainbow

I just got my Tombow markers a few weeks ago and I've slowly been playing with them. This time I wanted to see how well I could blend them quickly without a lot of effort. I took some rainbow colors and scribbled them on a piece of Bristol smooth paper overlapping a little at each side. Then I cut out a Hello from Concord and 9th. I used the same die on some foam and put them together for some dimension.

I also embossed a piece of white card for the background and then used a rainbow color of sequins to add some shine. I like the bright colors I got from these markers.

Once I was done I realized that I didn't have anything to compare how these markers blended. So I made another card but using my Zig clean color markers.

I used similar colors to the first card. I scribbled the colors on bristol paper again but then used a water brush to blend them together. These colors came out a little softer than the tombow one did. I kept this card really simple. I still embossed the background but just adhered the die cut to the background with no dimension and no other embellishments.

Overall, I think both blended pretty well. I believe that I could make the blending even smoother if I spent a little more time on it but I thought this was pretty good for just a quick effort.

I am putting the second card in two challenges:
CAS on Sunday - Sentiment
HLS CAS - die cuts.

Thank you for taking a look :)

    I am hoping you can help me with a problem i have commenting on some google plus accounts. I have no problem to comment on yours, but when I have other google plus bloggers visit me, I am not able to return the favour without joining gooogle plus. When i let them know, they all say they o not know what to alter in their setting to allow comments from others. As you seem to have yours set up to welcome comments, do you know what they need to do to have commenting open to all? Thanks Maureen from the Rudolph Days Challenge.

    1. Hi Maureen - I am so sorry I didn't see this comment earlier! In case you haven't found an answer, in my google + profile settings, in 'Who can comment on your public posts?' I selected Anyone. That may be the problem. Thank you for the awesome comment too!!
