Rainbow Color Sketch Inspired Card

Hello! This is my 3rd creation using a product from my new craft stash. I am using products from Trinity Stamps. At the same time, I am participating in their blog challenge. This is definitely a way for me to use my stash.

I already chose the stamp set, So Appreciative stamp set, but I was debating on what paper to use which then comes to the question of what technique should I do based on the paper. I decided to use this retired Martha Stewart double sided colored paper. It has six colors and I can use a color for each layer of the card sketch.

I started with the back panel. I cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" blue colored paper. The next layer was a light blue, which I cut at 4" x 5 1/4". I repeatedly stamp the zigzag stamp using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I embossed this with a Recollections Charcoal embossing powder.

I trimmed a 5 1/2" x 2 1/4" of green colored paper. I used the dash line stamp to create a stitched edge. I stamped this with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed this with a Martha Stewart black embossing powder.

For the circular focal point, I die cut an orange color paper using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle die. I die cut the coordinating sentiment die on this circle to create a window for the sentiment. I die cut a yellow circle using SSS Circle Thin Frames. This circle is a little bit smaller than the stitched orange circle. I embossed the sentiment on this yellow circle using the same black embossing powder. I colored the sentiment using a Karin metallic black Decobrush. I colored the yellow background with Zig Wink of Stella yellow glitter brush pen for some shimmer. I lined the opening of the orange circle to the embossed sentiment on the yellow circle then adhered this together. I applied Zig Wink of Stella orange glitter on the orange paper. You can see the shimmer on the above picture.

I die cut a red colored paper using the banner die included in the die set. I stamped the sub-sentiment on this banner using the metal die as a guide to curve the sentiment stamp so it will be aligned with the banner. I stamped this using Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

I created a slit on the Y of the embossed sentiment so I can insert the banner through it. I had to trim a little off the banner to be able to slide this through the slit. I die cut a pink heart and adhered this to the banner. I applied Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss to the heart.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I truly appreciate your being here and checking out my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and crative day!
