Happy Rainbow

It's a beautiful sunny day here today but this week we've had our fair share of rain and enjoyed seeing some spectacular rainbows. So I thought it might be fun to add a different kind of rainbow to my card today.


Stamps (Hero Arts) - Happy Stamp & Cut, Clouds Background & Fantastic Birthday


I started by inking up the clouds background stamp with salty ocean and faded jeans distress ink, spritzed it with water and stamped on white card. Then I die cut and stamped the sentiments and added a sprinkling of silver sequins to represent raindrops and also to use some of the big stash of sequins I seem to have accumulated in no time!

Next it was time to make my "rainbow". I applied double sided sticky tape to a piece of scrap card and added rows of embroidery thread in rainbow colours.


Then I trimmed the excess threads around the edges and added it to the back of the cloud panel.



After adhering the tiny extra pieces from the die cut sentiment I added strips of yellow card to the panel and used foam pads to adhere it to a red card base. I'm submitting this card into Simon Says Stamps' Happy Birthday Challenge.
