Sunshine and Rainbows

by Amy Bowerman

Rainbow bright is right with this weeks trigger!!  I love rainbows!  LOVE THEM.  The more color the better in my book.

Rainbow Bright


I’m late again this week originally I wanted to incorporate rainbow-colored stitching in my design.  I’ve had a sewing machine for years and have yet to use it so I figured now would be as good a time as any.  I printed out some instructions off the internet, cleaned off the dust and set to work trying to thread the needle.  Somehow I broke a piece off the machine in the process dang!  Had to resort to plan B which was supposed to be accomplished yesterday but a surprise bout of food poisoning laid me up all day so today it is!

To create this card I used Kraft card stock for the base.  I used a piece of blue shimmer cardstock and layered strips of colored card stock for the rainbow.  The sun and sun rays were created with yellow shimmer card stock.  I used a daisy, scallop and circle punch to create the sun.  The clouds were made with white shimmer card stock and cut with a fancy label die.  I brushed Broken China distress ink on the edges and wrote out the sentiment by hand. I used a rainbow of Distress inks for my stamping Fired Brick, Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, and Broken China.  All of the stamps are from Stampers Anonymous Grunge Cirque set.  I truly love this set it is so versatile and makes it easy to add color and texture to any project.

Thanks for coming by today…I wish you all a day filled with sunshine and rainbows!  Head over to Moxie Fab to play along :)

Food poisoning…yuck. Double, triple yuck. I sure hope you don’t have any lingering ick from that. Amazing that you got such a cheerful card after that! I love the multiple sentiments :)
