rainbows 1...



I was asked to be a guest designer for this challenge and how lucky was I to get this quote?
For this card I chose white card stock and layered MFT Mix-ables “Sun Ray” & “Mini Staggered Raindrops” stencils.
I lifted the raindrops as I had taped that down on me side and sponged the sun with Distress squeezed lemonade ink.
After laying the raindrop stencil back over the rest I used Distress markers carved pumpkin, candied apple blueprint sketch, mustard seed, wilted violet and mowed lawn for the raindrops over the suns rays.
(This shows the quote fully!)
Before removing the raindrops stencil I colored the rest of the drops with Distress marker stormy sky.
This piece I trimmed and layered with black card stock onto a white base card.
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the sentiment from MFT Stamps “Rainbow Greetings” with StazOn jet black ink, trimmed it, altered it with black card stock and glued it to the card front.

What fabulous cooperation between the sunshine and the rain, Arlene ... this is brilliant! Love how you made the raindrops change colour where the sun is glinting on them ... so clever! Thanks so much for inspiring our players as our Guest Designer at Time Out! Anita :)
