Celebrate in All the Colours of the Rainbow


Today's card is inspired by The Mixed Media Card Challenge where the theme is Rainbow (I chose not to go with the optional twist which is dragonfly). I'm hoping Shery and the DT think my card is mixed media enough to qualify: I've used acrylic paints for the background, die cutting and faux stitching, inking using Distress inks and finishing using glitter (Ice Stickles). I'm also linking up with AAA Cards where the theme is blending, Shopping Our Stash where the theme is What's the Good Word (use word dies) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Make For the Border (add interest around the borders). 



This card was actually put together from bits and bobs in my unfinished projects box. The background is one of the last ones I got left from a bunch of rainbow backgrounds I made using Distress Paints, and have been using on various (or should I say copious) cards in the last year or so. The sentiments are all cut out from another leftover piece of rainbow card I made using Distress Inks for some other project but it was too pretty to throw away even the leftover scraps. All I did was die cut the pieces and assemble, finishing up with some Ice Stickles on the sentiments. 

Card: 300 gsm white linen textured card, 300 gsm white smooth card, Stampin' Up black card
Inks: Distress Inks and Distress Paints
Dies: CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle, Celebrate Word Die
Other: Ranger Ice Stickles
