Two Rainbows and Sunshine

I'm still into the sponging--I think because I don't have to be precise and am expected to get ink on my fingers!

On the first card I randomly cut some scallops into scrap paper then used that as a mask, moving it from section to section to create the cloud bank.  I used my finger to create beams of sunlight breaking through the clouds; the sun is on the inside of the card.  Random scraps make up the rainbow.  I used embossing powder on the sentiment so it would be glossy--think glistening with rain.  Not as glossy as I expected but it does pop out.  So, I ended up with a lot of rainbow parts so tried another look.  The resulting card is more cutesy and whimsical.

The Details:  PTI white cardstock, cloud/sun die and sentiment; cardstock scraps for the rainbow, MFT rainbow & cloud die, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Memento Tuxedo Black, London Fog, Dandelion, Brilliance Graphite Black, Hampton Art clear embossing powder

I'm entering Card 1 in:  Just Add Ink Add a Sunburst, Keep It Simple #35 Stripes  
I'm entering Card 2 in:  Papertake Weekly Anything Goes


  1. Both cards look good. I like how you made the sunshine shining down. Its good to get messy just hard to remember 'dont touch the card while hands still inky'. I usually leave alittle extra something on every card I make :)

  2. Love them both too - the first with the sun shining through is just like real - I really like the softness of the sunburst with the clouds behind. Chantell JAI

  3. Wow your clouds look fantastic and the soft rays poking out look fab!
