AAA Cards Challenge #95 - Rainbow

Has it been raining recently in your part of the world? Or has it been sunny? Well at AAA Cards this fortnight the new challenge is hoping for a bit of both. Yep it's a rainbow theme.

As the butterflies have been busy flitting around my garden I decided to use the gorgeous sketchy Stamplorations Winged Things on my card. Love their hand drawn look.

I created my rainbow of colours by masking off a central stripe and then inking through a stencil. the butterflies were stamped on top and I added a touch of grey pen to give them a slightly raised appearance.

A simple sentiment white embossed onto black card just finished off my card a treat.

Stamps: Stamplorations, Winged Things; Uniko, Simply Said Birthday
Inks:  Ranger distress, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, cracked pistachio, bluepring sketch, wilted violet, milled lavender; Memento, tuxedo black; Veramark, clear
Embossing: Ranger Superfine, white
Pen: Promarker, cool grey 1
Stencil: Memory Box, Texture Wave

We have the wonderfully generous Shery from Stamplorations sponsoring this rainbow challenge with a prize of supplies she's used to create a card. Shery's card, along with all the other talented AAA Cards DT ladies and our brilliant Guest Designer Chrissie's cards can be found HERE. Make sure you check them all out!

I'm popping this card into the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More where the them is Anything Goes.

Thanks for your time today, it's been great having you visit my blog.  And keep crafting!
