Tutorial: Rainbow Lacy Heart

Hi all!

Teri here, and I've got a fun way for you to use Technique Tuesday's Lacy Heart steel die!

Rather than using the die plain, cut it from cardstock and then add some stripes to it with ink like I did here.

Lacy Heart Rainbow Handmade Card from Technique TuesdayYou can create that rainbow look easily with masking! Let me show you how.

Die-cut the Lacy Heart once with from glossy white cardstock. You could use a plain cardstock, but I prefer glossy because it takes to dye inks quite well. It goes on quick, and you can really even out the ink so it doesn't look blotchy.

Something you may want to consider as you ink the heart is using a solid piece of cardstock for your scratch paper. Because of the heart's design, you'll end up with a fun pattern on the paper. You may want to use this piece on a second project.
