The plus side is that while Kathryn worked on her homework; the school gave homework for all her subjects and it certainly kept her busy, I was able to play!! So I have another card to share with you today. I made for two challenges:
- The Ribbon Reel Challenge - RR40 - wonderful inspiration photo chosen by Pauline
- Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL215
Stamps: My Favourite Things - Pretty Pocket
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Pastel Rainbow
Dies: Provo Craft (Cuttlebug) Hippie Chick Alphabet
Accessories: Promarkers; Card, twine and brad from stash
I haven't played along with the Ribbon Reel challenges for a while, but when I saw the lovely rainbow umbrella I knew I had to play. The rainbow colours made me think of the summer of love, hippies, rock music, peace and love. I made the rainbow panel with my Promarkers - simply applying colour freehand. I had the perfect alphabet letters in my store and used Hippie Chick to cut the word peace and some symbols. I coloured the peace symbol to match the panel and left the heart and flower white so they'd stand out. I wrapped some white twine around the panel and adhered it to the card with dimensional tape. I stamped a couple of flourishes and flowers directly onto the card using pastel rainbow colours. Before attaching the flower, I added heart brad.
I showed the card to Kathryn and she loves it - thinks it's perfect for a teenager! I think she might be right! That really is all for today. The anaesthetic has worn off and I'm off to make a cup of coffee and decide what to make for dinner. See you tomorrow.
