Project 429: A fun little rainbow challenge

I saw the rainbow challenge at Retro Rubber this week and I really wanted to play along:

I love rainbows - if colors follow the right sequence I'm over the moon and I find myself wanting to edit colors in patterns I find if they're close but not quite in the right order.

I decided to get out a set of hot air balloon stamps that I have had for about 3-4 years now, my mom gave them to me and I've always loved how perfect they are to take on color through almost any means. I heat embossed them in white then used an aqua brush and a range of Distress Inks to create the rainbow pattern.

For the background I used a cloud stencil with Broken China Distress Ink and then topped it all off with a sticker sentiment from Tim Holtz that I cut in half to fit the space. It's a really cheerful card and I'm really thrilled with out it came out, I think I may even turn it into a set as it was pretty easy!


  1. Great layout- effective use of repetition and I love the subtle colours. I agree with you that rainbow colours need to be in the right order, too!

  2. I'm with you too on the correct order in a rainbow! I like the subtle colours of your rainbow. They balance nicely with your sweet clouds. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber for our rainbow challenge.

  3. Awesome card man, I love how you have coloured the rainbow into your hot air balloons - stunning and with that sentiment too. I find when I am working with rainbows I sing the song..thanks for playing with us at Retro Rubber. Love to see you in the gallery. Cx

  4. Beautiful card, love the soft colors. Thanks for joining Retro Rubber.

  5. So cute! Love the cloud background and how you placed the sentiment! Thanks for doing the RR challenge!
