I can never resist a rainbow, so when I saw the photo inspiration at the Just Add Ink challenge, I really had to play along:
Now I didn't want to do a 'rainbow' exactly, so I decided to play around with the colours themselves. You'll never believe how my card turned out:
Talk about crazy 'rainbowness'!! I started with the idea of using a circle stamp and stamping the colours from the bottom left of the card. I got half-way across the card and decided to sleep on my ideas first as I wasn't sure what to do.
Well, last night I decided to carry the rainbow across the rest of the card. I then spent what seemed like HOURS, die-cutting the circles out of another piece of cardstock. I then spent what seemed like TWO YEARS cutting out millions of tiny pieces of foam tape to pop my circles up.
I wanted a bold sentiment and thought gold would be perfect. The only problem is that I'm still learning with regards to heat embossing and its very stippled. Not sure what I'm doing wrong....any tips you have would be fantastic! A scattering of gold sequins and my crazy rainbow card was done. Talk about colourful!
The circle stamp is from Couture Creations. The metal die is from Pretty Pink Posh. The sentiment and sequins are from Neat and Tangled.
Because this is a new type of card design for me and something I've wanted to try for a few weeks now, I'm going to enter this card into the challenge at Simply Create Too! #69 where their theme is 'Show us Something New'.
I'm also going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'. This is my fourth entry.
Have one more card to post and think I will crawl into bed early tonight. Spent 3 hours pruning roses for a friend today and have scratches all up my arms. Roses are painful but so worth it!!!
