I have to warn you that I was in the mood for rainbows of color when I made my samples for this release! But that's why you buy all the colors, right? Lol.
For my first sneak peek this week I'm using the new Flirty Floral Background that I illustrated. This background coordinates with the new Do the Hula and Tiki Time stamp sets. However it is also a great stamp to use all on its own as I did on this card... which uses all the colors. ;)
I stamped the background in VersaMark on Sugar Cube card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then used six colors of Distress Oxide Ink and sponged each one onto the embossed card stock creating a soft rainbow of color. I used a paper towel to wipe the excess ink off the embossed areas.
I wanted the background to shine through so I kept the sentiment small and added a bunch of little butterflies. Each little butterfly was cut from a different color of card stock and embellished with a couple of clear jelly rhinestones. To finish I trimmed the panel to size and mounted on a white card base using foam tape.
