Rainbow Thanks

Hi!  I'm playing along with the current Muse challenge - a challenge I haven't had a chance to play with for such a long time.

From Tracey's gorgeous card, I used the same images and bright colors but flipped it around so that the images were white-embossed and the colors were sponged on.  I did the same with the sentiment - instead of being black on white, I went white on black.

To make this card, I white-embossed the halftone circles onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock, then blended Distress Oxide inks over the top.  Some of the circles didn't stamp fully, but I quite liked the imperfect look, so left them as they were.  I flicked on some water, mopped up the excess, then sponged over the top again to tone down the color variations.  I die-cut the panel with a wonky stitched rectangle die and mounted it onto a white card base.

The sentiment was white-embossed onto black and die-cut using the co-ordinating die.

Thanks for visiting!  Here's a look at the Muse card for this week.

Fabulous card. I love how you reverse-engineered Tracey's card to make this! I've got this stamp set sitting in my stash sadly neglected - must rectify that!
