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!
