Rainbows, Rainbows Everywhere: An Irish Blessing

I decided to use only a small section of the frame from Claritystamp which comes with the Irish Blessing verse.  By masking and using a micron pen, I covered the front of my card with rainbows.
Stamp the Irish Blessing verse onto a piece of stencil card using a Jet Black Archival ink pad. Cut the verse into sections and mat onto black card leaving a narrow border.
Cut a piece of stencil card to 4.75” x 4.75”. Mask off the areas around the rainbow on the frame. Ink up the rainbow using a Jet Black Archival ink pad, remove the masking and quickly stamp onto the card. Replace the masking tape and repeat until the whole card is covered with rainbows.
Use the finest Sakura black micron pen to extend the lines of the rainbows where necessary.
Using a Pergamano blending pen and a separate nib for each colour, add Blaze, Orange Popsicle, Hay Stack, Green Garland, Ocean Reef, Blue Chase and Indian Jamun Artistry inks to each of the rainbows.
Mat the panel onto a piece of black card leaving a narrow border and add to the front of a 5” x 5” white card blank.
Add the verse sections.
To finish add one of the birds from the Birdhouse Garden stamp set in Jet Black Archival ink.
