Spent the weekend with my Mum and only left the house once!! The weather was horrible, so Mum and I chatted while I made cards and she did crosswords. Was fantastic!!
It gave me a chance to make a card for the CASology Challenge this week where their cue word is:
I knew what I wanted to do but didn't know if I could pull it off as didn't have the right tools....
This was the hardest card I've EVER attempted before!! I wanted to keep it all one layer, so used my curved-stitched die from Pretty Pink Posh. I cut the first curve in all of the colours and then realised I would have to do it again under each curve to make a strip. I suddenly found that my 'eyeballing' of the depth of each strip wasn't the best AND if I got the curve in the wrong place, they wouldn't fit together. It was a nightmare!!
After getting the rainbow together and getting it glued to the top curve in the white cardstock, I tried to put the cut card from that curve underneath the rainbow and it wouldn't fit! So after much tracing, hand-cutting and regluing, I managed to get it all together as one layer. I absolutely love how it turned out but don't think I will ever do it again (unless I buy a rainbow die....).
The sentiment stamp is from Altenew 'Sohcahtoa' and managed to stop myself from adding any enamel dots as I thought the rainbow was enough.
I going to link this card to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
And will also link to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps # 106 where they also have an 'Anything Goes' theme.
I have another card to post and my first ever tag for a tag/card challenge, so will hopefully get to those soon. Lots of jobs to do after being away for the weekend!
