You'll never know

You'll never know how many tries a card takes before it turns out as you wish. This was one of them, I wanted to make a CAS card with rainbow stamping. I wont show them! I need some more practise. All I can tell is that the hanging bin is full of rainbow coloured pieces, so I made an easy one with rainbow colouring. The stacked circles and the layering were made with leftovers, you know them strips you get when cutting cardstock, they're perfect for this.

Challenges:
CASology: Rainbow Colours
Everybody Art Challenge: Favourite Stamps
Crafty Calendar: Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges: Favourite Colour Combo (at the moment it's rainbow colours)

Materials used:
Itsy Bitsy image from the Paisley set, I cut out the flower with a craft knife. It was stamped with black Versa Fine and coloured with Aqua Markers.
The Itsy Bitsy stamps are from India, but I know that Reprint sells the same here in Sweden, I guess they go with different names.
The sentiment is Inkido and it says "Thousand thanks" in Swedish, do you say that in English?

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, hope you'll have time for crafting.

Hugs and love
Maarit

  5. Hello Maarit,
    I know what you mean, sometimes it just won't work out the way you have it in mind. My card I'm going to post on my blog tomorrow did work out BUT it has cost me a lot of patience. I made a card with woven ribbons but i used a scalloped die for this which you normally don't do since that makes it too difficult. But I pulled it off. (in the end )
    Thank you for stopping by at my card from pixies playground and for leaving me a comment. Have a nice day, lots of greetings from Belgium, Veerle x

    In English we often say 'Thanks a Million' - to be honest I like 'A Thousand Thanks' much more! :)
