Always chasing rainbows... Addicted to CAS

Good morning, crafty friends.

I created this graduation card for my son following a Stamp Nation challenge.
It looks deceptively simple, but contains a surprise.

It also fits the current code word at Addicted to CAS, which is RAINBOW!
You will note I didn't use the entire seven-colour palette for a proper rainbow. I focused on my son's favorite colours, one of which is purple.  I used Catherine Pooler inks, which work wonderfully for blending. I masked off the area for the rainbow and applied ink with a foam blending-tool. Next I used the MISTI to add the sentiment in black ink.  I added thin strips of black cardstock to define the rainbow section. A few stars and sequins hide some smudges!
Here's the inside:
An explosion of sentiments and fire-work-ish images.
The challenge at Addicted to CAS runs for another week--make sure to check it out.

Thanks for taking a look today!
Happy crafting,

Catherine Pooler inks: Tiki Torch, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Aquatini, Something Borrowed, Flirty Fuschia and Midnight (black)
Cardstock: Catherine Pooler-white; Michael's-black
Stamp sets: Catherine Pooler, from the "Perfect Reason" collection
Sequins: Close to My Heart


  1. Great card, Caroline! I love your blended ink panel with bold sentiment on the outside of your card and the fun "explosion" insert inside. Thanks for reminding me of something I used to do twenty plus years ago!
