Here's how to create Patterned Cards in Rainbow Colors with Ooly:
Creating with the kiddos in my life is such a blessing to me. My youngest niece is almost 12, so I have to find quick and easy projects that will spark her interest. She was very excited (as was I) to try out the Ooly Chunkies Paint Sticks. When you want to paint colorful pictures but want to leave the mess behind then it's time to reach for Chunkies Paint Sticks. Chunkies are super easy to use, clean and portable because they're like painting with a crayon. Just uncap, twist and start painting.
Josie shares my love of rainbows, so creating different patterns in rainbow colors of Chunkies Paint Sticks was a no-brainer. They dry instantly, so there is no smudging, but the bright colors blend beautifully. Polka dots are quick and easy, then we created plaid, stripes, and heart patterns. Simply remove the cap, twist up, and start painting!
Y'all know that I love adding hand lettering to my projects. Tombow Dual Brush Pen N15 Black glides right over the Chunkies Paint Sticks without smearing because it's already dry. I think that a mix of lettering and printing is easier when creating a composition. Add the largest part of the sentiment and then fill in with the smaller elements. It was Josie's idea to dot all of the lowercase letter i's with hearts. Tombow Dual Brush Pens have a large brush tip and a small bullet tip, so it's like have two pens in one! If you want to hand letter these cards, download my Free Printable below ⇓ and use the Cricut Bright Pad to trace thenm directly.
How to Create Colorful Rainbow Pattern Cards
Chunkies Paint Sticks come in a variety of sets including rainbow, neon, and metallic colored paint sticks each in a thick barreled casing so they're easy for little hands to hold. The paint colors are quick drying and won't smudge, but it's easy to mix colors to make even more colors. It's magic! Care and use recommendations: Keep capped when not in use, to help prevent drying. Cover and protect your workspace. Chunkies may stain some surfaces, so we covered the kitchen table with freezer paper. Check out the entire line of Chunkies Paint Sticks over on the Ooly website.
Since I have been sending way more snail mail this past year, mostly to the older members of my church. I have been looking for quick and easy ways to create vibrant and interesting cards that will really brighten the recipients' day! My trick to make Colorful Rainbow Pattern Cards even easier is to keep a separate hand-lettered free printable like the one I am sharing above. Then use the Cricut Bright Pad to trace the lettering over and over from the free printable directly onto the colored cards.

Love your art! Here’s another project I intend to help my residents at an assisted living facility make. They can send them to family and friends, or donate them to our local thrift store to raise funds for their activities. thanks so much for sharing these easy projects.
YES, Barbara! And you can totally use any type of crayon, marker, highlighter, or pen to create patterns on these cards! TIP – If using water-based markers, etc. make sure you print the cards on a laser (dry ink) printer/copier instead of an inkjet printer to prevent smearing. Happy Crafting!
