The current Curtain Call Challenge is a rainbow theme and Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge is to create a rain or shine card. I combined the two challenges and made this card.
I’m on vacation this week and away from most of my supplies but I’m spending my time making cards with what I brought along. However a rainbow stamp was not in the mix. And to tell you the truth, I think I only own 1 small rainbow stamp that was part of a set. I’m just not a rainbow person. Couldn’t tell you why but they are in the category of owls and feathers….I tend not to take a liking to stamp that have those images. So I was more than a little stumped this afternoon and wasted a few card fronts trying to wing a rainbow. Who knew winging it when making a rainbow tends to look like crap. I tried my watercolors, my zig markers and nada. Just an awful mess. So I ended up cutting a stencil with my circle die set and sponging the various colors. Not my favorite card but it was a good exercise on making things work with limited supplies. I added some wink of Stella to jazz it up a bit. Supplies are listed below. Happy crafting!
