Somewhere Over the Rainbow......

Hello friends, family and followers, it's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash and it's Somewhere Over The Rainbow so here is what you need to do to enter your project in the challenge. Add rainbows to your project or use a rainbow colour palette. I do have a rainbow die but time constraints I went with a Rainbow colour palette. 

Last weekend there was a Card Maker Success Summit free to sign up you could also buy a VIP pass which gave access to all the videos etc, and since I have done a weekend online crop before I knew I never would keep up but the free part was good each day you had 24 hours to view the videos that aired that morning, One was on blending the oxide inks so I decided (from memory) on trying my hand at it. The inks I used was Lumberjack Plaid, Spiced Marmelade, Squeezed  Lemonade, Rustic Wilderness, Blueprint Sketch, Uncharted Mariner and Villainous Potion.  I used a Happy Birthday cover plate to cut the blended background, backed it with turquoise (the only colour I was happy with) Added it to a top fold base and a poppy die cut. 

The poppy stems were flat attached and the flower heads were popped up.

I finished the inside with a 2009 Penny Black wood mount sentiment, and a few scraps of cardstock.

Along with the "old" Penny Black Sentiment, the Birthday cover plate I have had for at least 2 years and it has never been used, the poppy die is not quite that old but also had never been used. Felt really good to give them the love they deserve. 

I am adding this to:

Seize The Birthday ~~ Anything Goes

Just Us Girls ~~ Word Week ~~ Rainbow

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out the inspiration on the MAIN BLOG.

Love this! Such a clever way to match paper and die. The simple flowers are the perfect addition. x
