Addicted To Stamps And More #306...

Hi! I am here today with some inspiration for the current Addicted To Stamps And More challenge #306. The theme this time is

These cards are a continuation of my previous set of cards. I made 50 cards that I for a friend. His friend also liked the cards. But he wanted 'Thank You' cards. So I tweaked the design and used up the pieces of rainbow paper that were left over. You can see the original cards here.

I started with a piece of cream cardstock. I painted diagonal stripes in rainbow order with Camlin photo inks. I love these for their intense colours and quick drying. Once the inks were dry, I diluted some gold acrylic paint and splattered it over the sheets.

I used the Dotted Florals background stamp by Impression Obsession with the Rocky Shore ink by Altenew to stamp on the cream card base. This gives a light texture without overwhelming or clashing with the rainbow panels. I adhered strips of cream and gold marbled handmade paper to the card base. I added the strips of rainbow paper popped up with foam tape. The Thanks die is by My Favorite Things. I die cut it out of black cardstock and adhered it directly to the rainbow strip.

To finish I rounded the corners with my corner rounder.

I hope you liked my cards and are inspired to make something beautiful. You can link your cards to our gallery here. Also, remember to visit the Addicted To Stamps And More challenge blog for more fabulous inspiration by my talented teamies.
