It has been a while since I had a chance to play along with a Challenge.  I had a little time today and when I saw the challenge at Just Add Ink this week I thought this would be a good one to try. This week ‘ Rainbows’.  We certainly have had a lot of rain recently to relate to this but I did like the fun colours to work with.  Here is the inspiration.


Here is the card I came up with.  It certainly took a lot longer than I thought it would but I am pleased with the final result.  I love all the bright, happy colours.


This was the first chance I have had to use the Star stencil too so that was fun.  I sponged sections with Tempting Turqoise, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo.  This was adhered to a Melon Mambo mat and Tempting Turquoise card base.  I added some Burlap ribbon across the front.  I coloured sections of the stamp from ‘Amazing Birthday’ with the markers.  I stamped some again to raise them up too.  This was adhered to a piece of Melon Mambo card and raised up off the white card front.  What I discovered too was the small star in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack co-ordinates nicely with the small star framelit.  So I punched out the small star in Pumpkin Pie and then cut out the star using the framelit around the punched one.  I cut another star in Melon Mambo and adhered them together. I was quite excited about the result.  I punched out some more stars in Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight.  I added some Brights Candy Dots to the centre of the stars too.

Job done! Challenge Completed!!  I hope this brightens your day wherever you are.
