Shine from Above


Classy Cards 'n Such has weekly card and paper crafting challenges. Each Monday a new challenge with rules are posted. It's a great way to share your card/project and you could even win a prize. Check it out!

This week I decided to surprise Beverly and the design team at Classy Cards 'n Such , and add a card to the challenge.

The Rainbow of Colors Challenge this week brings back memories of gorgeous rainbows I remember from years past. Who doesn't love a rainbow after a rain storm? The colors seem to glow in the sky. The memories of rainbows I have seen over the years, are what led to my card today.



For the base of the card, I used light purple cardstock.

For the main white cardstock panel, I taped in place the Memory Box stencil Texture Shine, over the panel. I didn't want to over power the panel with color, so I sponged in the first five areas of the stencil.

The colors used for the stencil are Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads. Working left to right, the colors are Victorian Velvet, Broken China, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Spun Sugar. The ink pads for these colors are sold out, but the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers  in these colors are still available in the store.

The sentiment is from the JustRite Hugs and Kisses Sentiments stamp set. I used the Spellbinders Butterfly Circles for the die cut.

I really like how the colors stand out by using the stencil! I invite you to join the  Rainbow of Colors Challenge!

I hope you are inspired to make a colorful card for someone special!
