Rainbow of Friendship

Hi there, my card today features some lovely new stamps from Chocolate Baroque, the large sprig of flowers is from Dusky Damask and the sentiment is from Pretty Poppies

I've stamped the flower sprigs with different colours of distress ink to give a rainbow effect and used the same inks to colour some seam binding ribbon. The swirls are from Butterfly Flourish again stamped with distress ink pads. I used distress markers to ink up the sentiment stamp from Pretty Poppies and also the butterflies from Butterfly Flourish. The sentiment is die cut and I used tape to attach the ribbon,  pleating it as I went along. I matted the card on some rainbow card that I made with white card and distress markers and attached the butterflies with silicone glue for a bit of dimension.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Hotshot Crafts: distress inks
Joanna Sheen: Going round in circles

Thanks for popping by today

  1. Love the rainbow effect using DIs and the matching pleated ribbon is a nice touch

  2. Gobsmacked!! It's fabulous Claire. You are so imaginative and creative. Love the rainbow effect on everything - the design is amazing in itself but the rainbow effect turns it into something else.
