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 :)
