Kaleidacolors Background Cards

Okay, folks, here they are as promised! My samples made with the Kaleidacolors background from Part 1! This is an A-2 sized card.  I cut a 3" x 5 1/2" piece of the background into three 1" x 5 1/2" srips and attached them horizontally with just a little space between.
 
I then added a 1/4" torn edge strip of white cardstock right below the bottom strip.
 
 
The flower is "Fresh Bloom" by Stampendous. I stamped it with the Creole Spice Kaleidacolor ink pad, spritzed it with the mister and after I dried it, overstamped it with the same ink.

Then I cut the flower out and attached it to the lower right corner. The "autumn" text (Hero Arts) was stamped on a scrap piece of white and punched out with a 2" (Marvy) oval punch, edged with the yellow from the inkpad. I attached it to the top left of the card and then added a few yellow glitter glue dots to it for a little sparkle. I also added a few glitter glue dots to the flower center.  I then stamped the text in the lower left portion of the card, and it was done!

  1. Hi Sewnmachine!

    Thought I would quickly give you an answer to your question, as I'm not sure when Regena will be around.

    Please refer to the first post on how to create Regena's gorgeous backgrounds. Here's the link:

    Kaleidacolors are rainbow dye ink pads. They have 6 colored ink pads in the same container. You push a lever and all the pads come together to allow you to use a brayer or a stamp to get variegated color. They are manufactured by Tsukineko, Inc. They come in a wide variety of color combinations and are fun to work with.

  2. Beautiful!!! I just happened upon this site from SplitcoastStampers. I've bookmarked it. This might be a redundant question - but how did you make the background? What are Kaleidacolors?
