Rainbows and Sparkle!

Rainbows and sparkles make any day shine a little brighter, don't you think?  I do too! 
On day 11 of Spring Card Camp our teacher was Dawn Woleslagle who shared a lesson on creating a rainbow and cutting it to create two cards. The class gallery is chock full of rainbow cards so I know this was the fav lesson of many, including me! 

I have so many of the same supplies that Dawn used, so my card is an actual CASE of hers. I'm happy to share it here. It was fun and so easy to make that I can't wait to make more. I'm thinking these would be great for a note card set too. 

I appreciate your visit today, please take care!

A Two for One Inking

I'm back again with a second card using stencil techniques from day 9 at #OCCSpringCardCamp. Sometimes the card parts that don't turn out end up making the best cards! That's what happened with today's sample. 

Our technique involved inking a panel of card stock heavily over a stencil for card #1. Card #2 involved spritzing the inked stencil, flipping it over onto watercolor paper and smooshing. It turned out that I didn't care for the heavy inking version. But I loved what I got after the smooshing. 

I began with the Hypnotic stencil from Penny Black but it's almost impossible to make out the shapes on my card front.  

For now, I'm very happy with this soft look and simple design. The inks used were Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserves. Hearts in die cut in white and vellum and a few sequins dress it up.
Thanks for taking a peek today!
