I love this card!! Have you ever made a card that just makes you happy?? This one does!!! The challenge on the Hand Stamped Sentiment's blog is Rainbows. There are a couple of cardmakers out there who make GREAT rainbow cards and I'm always blown away at their beauty. So I knew I wanted to play along and have some fun with a rainbow!
Hmmmm, but what to do? Since I have a bunch of Distress Inks, I decided to use those. I laid out my rainbow colors: Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord. (Here's the card)
Eat Cake Graphics, masked him and used another dauber for the sky. I removed the masked and colored him in with prisma pencils and added a few more blades of grass with my pencils.
And in a moment of whimsy - I even added a few hash marks to 3 of Rowley's limbs to create movement!! Wow - that's a big deal for me!!!
I search my whole inventory for a great sentiment to go along with this cheerful guy - and I used my Verve sentiment embossed in white. The card was still pretty one dimensional - even with all that color - so I reached for these dew drops my blogging friend Cheryl @ She Stamps sent me a while back! I love that they pick up the colors of the rainbow since they are clear!
Have you checked out Eat Cake Graphics stamps yet? I'm really enjoying using their stamps!!! I'll have another card up next week using another one of Holly's fab stamps!!
You've got until Monday at noon to play along with the HSS Challenge:
