Clearly Besotted Teasers | Rainbow Wishes

Hello there and welcome to day two of the July 2018 Clearly Besotted Teasers. My card today uses the new Over The Rainbow stamp set. All of the layers of the rainbow are separate stamps so you can line them up easily and use different colours for each layer. The ends of the rainbow have brushstroke ends so they do not stop abruptly, which is nice.

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamping the rainbow on to it using various shades of Distress Oxide ink plus the normal Distress ink for the orange, as I do not have an Oxide in this colour. The Oxide inks stamp beautifully, though. I used the Mini MISTI to help line up the different layers. I took a strip of paper from the MFT Black & White Striped Paper Pad and added this to the side of an A2 card base. The rainbow panel was then added on top with tape runner.
I die cut some clouds using the Cloudy Days Die Collection (which is soon retiring, so grab it while you can!) from white cardstock, as well as vellum. These were layered up with thin foam tape and tape runner for the vellum cloud. The sentiment from the Tiny Type set was stamped in Versamark Ink on to black cardstock. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Raindrops with liquid glue.

  1. Michelle this is beautiful, I love the fabulous design of this card. The placement of all elements is just perfect. The oxides inks look great and as you say will have worked well for stamping with their pigment properties. Love those cloud dies, such a shame they are retiring. Beautiful card, as always, Lisa xx

  2. pure CAS perfection..love this Michelle!

  3. I love rainbows! hat a lovely card, I really like how you off set the rainbow and added the striped margin. The clouds and raindrops are a brilliant touch! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. What a fabulous design and so clever to have all the sections of the rainbow separately. I've been toying with this die set for a while...… you make it look even more temping on this card! xxx
