Cardmaking

Wishing you a rainbow of happiness

Today’s post is something new for me as I’m joining in with a card making challenge from Freshly Made Sketches ( https://tinyurl.com/ydesmssu ).  The sketch for this week’s challenge is….

FMS Final 334-001

I started with selecting a theme and I picked the Brighten your day stamp set for the sentiment and three different sizes of umbrellas.

 Brighten Your Day set from For the love of stamps by Hunky Dory

I also used some distress oxide inks to create a rainbow panel and I spritzed it lightly with some water to get the effect of a few raindrops.

I also used First Edition Craft twin markers, distress oxide inks and Nuovo crystal drops.

To finish off my card I added a blue panel behind the rainbow as per the sketch and then some nuovo drops in opposite corners.

  1. Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches! We hope you’ll join us again. Your card is absolutely delightful! Such a rich and beautiful background and the umbrellas are gorgeous. As for challenges, I love them and can’t seem to make a card without being guided by a challenge or two! The other design team I’m on is for Fusion Card Challenge, where we have a sketch and a photo and you can be inspired by one or the other or both. http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com
