Over on the Daring Cardmakers blog this week Miri has set a fab challenge - to use at least 5 patterned papers on your card.
Well I always love an opportunity to use patterned paper - but my card went in a very minimal paper direction for this one, most unlike me!
Paper: Pink Paislee
Stamps: Winnie & Walter (Sending You)
Dies: Mama Elephant (Rainbow High), Lawn Fawn (Hearts)
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh
Other: Watercolour paper, watercolour paints, 3D tape, MISTI, Wink of Stella
So it was the first outing for these lovely Sending You stamps by Winnie & Walter - I've been after a "Sending you..." stamp set for a while that was going to work for a few types of cards. And the font is lovely too... I also wanted the Wishing you set but it's been out of stock everywhere for a while. One day... ;)
This was also the first outing for the fabulous rainbow die from the Mama Elephant Rainbow High die set. Now, you know I love my MFT rainbow die - I've been using it for many years. But the rainbow die was actually not what drew me to this new die set, it was the clouds and the balloon outline... well, let me tell you this rainbow die is going to get used a lot!
I love the fact that it doesn't cut out all the arcs individually. It cuts almost to the bottom of the rainbow so all you need to do to colour the individual segments is slot a piece of scrap paper through your die-cut to mask off the arcs you are not colouring. Very simple. :)
The watercolour paints were out again - really enjoy using these to colour in rainbows.
Most of the paper I used for this card was on the backgrounds - but the little scraps I had left over from other projects were used to cut the tiny hearts.
Don't forget to pop on over to the blog to see how patterned paper has been celebrated!
Until next time, happy crafting!
