Chase Rainbows Cards

Hello everyone, it’s Pam here with two cards I made using the Chase Rainbows collection.

I had fun – and a little bit of a challenge – making these cards. The challenge arose because the collection is all about colour and pattern, and doesn’t have images that could be used as focal points. However, once I got to grips with the fact that I would have to think out of the box a bit, and go for an arty look, I was ok.

For both cards I used the coordinating stamp set. To make the background for the first card I sprayed some Kaisermists in yellow and pink into puddles on a craft sheet, and then picked up the ink with the splat stamp from the set. Using the mists wet like this allows the colours to bleed into each other and that’s how you get the lovely orange colour too. When the ink was dry I used a Kaisercraft mini ink pad to stamp the lace semicircle stamp on top. The butterfly (from the Kaleidescope collection) was stamped onto some of the patterned paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, as were the sentiment stamps from the Chase Rainbows stamp set. In addition I used some washi tape and some sew easy twine to add a bit of interest.

Card1 My next card is  a mixed media ‘she art’ piece. This began with some torn paper pieces from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad collaged onto a piece of card stock. Over this I randomly stamped some text using the Kaleidescope stamp set and my favourite background stamp, Arty. The yellow is the lace semicircle stamped in Kaisercrafts yellow paint. After that it was a matter of drawing the figure of the girl, and decorating her with patterned paper, flowers and rhinestones.

Can you see my trick to avoid having to draw feet?
