Rainbows, Flowers, and Friends

Happy Saturday! I spent the last two days cleaning my house and getting ready for a party, which we hosted last night. We had a great time, and today I'm relaxing in my nice clean house and spending some time creating. I had a great morning of swimming and knitting at Starbucks. It was Worldwide Knit in Public Day, in case you didn't know. I haven't knit since Christmas time, so it was nice to get it out again.

Today I made a colorful card for some Clean And Simple challenges. The challenge theme at Addicted to CAS is rainbows, and the trend technique at Just Us Girls is to use alcohol inks. So I decided to get out my alcohol markers and messily scribble over my panel a pretty but messy rainbow. I contained it to the top panel in order to keep it CAS. I'm also adding this to the friendship theme at Less is More, and the sketch is from CAS(E) This Sketch.

After I colored the panel, I cut a circle out of a portion of it, then stamped the flowers directly onto the card base. I attached the panel with foam dots. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap and glued it to the panel.

I hope you can spend some time on this beautiful Saturday creating something beautiful! Here are some challenges to get you inspired.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy

  1. FAB make and loving that you made it fit so many challenges so well


  2. Your "messy rainbow" looks really fun and I absolutely love the design of this: I love the cut out half circle in the top layer, it adds a lot of interest. I must remember this! Thanks for inspiration and thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

  3. This was a great way to use alcohol inks for the challenge and one I didn't think of, Sarah. The markers made a wonderful rainbow. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us girls.

  4. What a great way to use your AI's Sarah. A fabulous result. Love the way you have cased that sketched perfectly. Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls this week.
