Hello Rainbow

Hi again! This is Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook back again and today I’ve got nothing but sunshine and rainbows for you!¬†

I started off this fun card by ink blending a panel for my sky. I had an idea where I wanted my sun so I was sure to leave a space for a little yellow glow. Then I die cut all my pieces from the Cloudy Day Scene Builder dies and also the Rainbow dies. I used my copics to give everything color and started to decide on a final layout with my Mouse House stamps as placeholders.

From there I stamped, colored and die cut all of my images with the coordinating Mouse House dies. Then I started assembling my card. I popped the Cloudy Day panel up with foam strips and then added my rainbow and additional clouds with foam squares. Finally, I glued down my mice with a combo of liquid glue and foam squares where needed and moved on to finishing touches.

I used black glaze pen on the mouse eyes and noses, Stickles on the sunshine and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the rainbow. I also added dots of glossy accents on the mushrooms and flower center. Finally I added some clay hearts from a special embellishment mix that was handed out at Creativation – but you can get most of the ones I used in this mix called Crafty Love.

Funny thing…it wasn’t until now that I realized I didn’t have a sentiment (or a real space for one) on my card. Oops. I suppose it’s not totally necessary but I thought it would be fun to add something, so I grabbed my Hello Senti-mini dies, cut it from silver glitter cardstock and glued it below the mouse on the top left. It filled in a little empty space and added some extra sparkle, which I love!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
