Peaceful Pines - Colours of the Rainbow

I visited Merry Monday this morning and saw the current challenge and just had to give it a go!

Below is the inspiration for this challenge - I thought I would give sponging a try for this challenge, after all rainbow is the theme and rainbows have that lovely blending of colour when they appear in the sky.

I decided to use a tree from the Peaceful Pines stamp set; using the edge of the stamp pad I carefully put a small segment of each of the colours listed below and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  I re-stamped using Versamark, applied Heat  power to attach the Dazzling diamonds.  I used the Softly Falling TIEF, then sponged each of the colours, applying slighly heavier on the edge of the cardstock, I used the same process again to apply a light coverage of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs.

My Husband was like "WOW, I really like that" when I showed him!  

I am really glad I decided to give this challenge a go, I would not have gone out of my way to use rainbows for Christmas, but after seeing the end result here I think it will be a combination that I use again.

Thanks for popping by today, hope you enjoyed your visit,

  1. Sue, this is one of the most lovely cards I have seen. Hoping to use this as inspiration to make a birthday for a special young girl later this week. Thank you for sharing.

  2. So pretty. Love all the texture on your background. And the glitter on your tree is perfect. Thanks for joining us this week at Merry Monday.

  3. This shimmery, colorful card is all the texture in the background.

  4. Your card is beautiful and is just what I was attempting to make but failed. I am going to case your card for another card someday. Love the shine and glitter! Great! Sure to be a winner.
