One Die, Three Cards

This Wacky Box Die from Dare 2B Artzy can be probably used in a nearly infinite number of ways; but here are three cards, incorporating rainbow colors, just for starters:
For the card on the bottom right, I merely cut the panel from Distress Woodgrain Cardstock and layered it over a rainbow panel I made a few weeks ago, by painting broad stripes ofHero Arts Liquid Watercolors (in Strawberry, Dandelion and Deep Ocean) and letting them blend together at the edges.
The two other cards were both the result of ONE process: I used the Wacky Box Die on a piece of sturdy white cardstock, which I taped down securely to a second piece, so I could use the diecut panel as a homemade stencil. I applied a rainbow of Distress Oxide Inks to the squares using a fingertip applicator. (For the record, the colors are Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord; but honestly, this would work with ANY inks, in ANY colors that play well together!)  Before lifting the top panel off, I outlined the entire design with a fine-tipped black Pitt Artist Pen. The card to the left of the top photo (with the blue-embossed sentiment from Impression Obsession's Happy Birthday Clear Stamp Set ) is the bottom panel from this process. The card with the red border is the "stencil" itself-- it looked so beautiful that I just couldn't toss it out; I trimmed it neatly and made it into a third version of this colorful card! 
There are lots more dies, for every imaginable occasion, at The Ink Pad's Online Store, as well as our Chelsea location. Stop by... we'd love to see you! 
can never resist using as 
many colors as possible!
