Rainbow Rain

April 23, 2017

I had to sneak in one more card before Spring Break ended. I was inspired by Lori Bassen’s Happy Thoughts card on Simon Says Stamp’s Blog today. I loved her rainbow background and was itching to make one of my own.



Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began with a white card base. I stamped the rain drops in a variety of Distress Inks. I used second generation stamping to get a softer look.

I used the same Distress Inks to stamp the umbrella on a scrap of white card base. I also stamped the dogs on the same scrap. I used a black pen to outline the umbrella.  I added color to the dogs using two brown shades of Distress Inks and a Mini Distress Ink Blending Tool.

I die cut a cloud border and grassy border from some white card stock. I used Distress Inks and Mini Ink Blending Tools to add color to each border. I also stamped my sentiment on the cloud border. I also outlined the word COLOR as well.

I adhered everything to the card base using foam tape.
