More rainbows!

Hi there!

I planned on making a card and ended up with a bonus when I realized there was another easy card in that throw away piece with die cut circles!

Looking at the two cards after I finished it... I like the card with the rescued card stock more!


And the second (bonus card!)





I played with Acrylic paper and Faber Castell soft pastels to create the rainbow stripes.

                     
                    
 Sentiments created in the Silhouette studio.

My cards were inspired by :

Muse card club ~ Inspired by Tracey's rainbow & circles

Addicted to CAS ~ Rainbows

Cas-ual fridays ~ Rainbows

Seize the birthday ~ No topping

Happy little stampers  ~ April CAS Blending



          


                                     


Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

Both these cards are gorgeous, Hannelie! The texture on the paper adds so much interest while still keeping both cards CAS.

Your DIY rainbow paper is so pretty and the use of it masterful as always!!! Both are fabulous, but I love the first one more as it is more attractive for me with the added dimension :)! Thanks for linking this up at Seize the Birthday! Have a wonderful week, Hannelie!

Well, you just never know, do you? Two fabulous cards with that beautiful pastel rainbow background. I'll have to look up acrylic paper. Another item I'm not familiar with.

So resourceful and two great cards! I love the texture of the subtle rainbow effect and they both look great with the contrasting black.
Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers and Muse, Anita x

Bobby said...

There's nothing better than getting another fantastic card out of your leftovers, Hannelie. I love the texture the pencils give.

Both cards are lovely, but I think I like the second one just a squidge more. Somehow those white circles make the soft rainbow colors a bit more pronounced.

Geri said...

Gorgeous contrast between the black and the softly inked, beautifully colored backdrops! GORGEOUS textured paper!
