More Rainbows!

This is round 2 for this post as I hadn't finished writing it earlier and then posted and deleted it...boy my brain is not in gear today!! So here goes again!

I made this card yesterday after coming across a sentiment stamp I hadn't used before. It reminded me that at Less is More this week the theme is 'Singing in the Rain'. I wanted to water colour so made this:


I did at first mask off the area to make my rainbow but after taking off the tape it just looked too uniform. So I just added more paint and water, swished about a bit and let the colours run into one another....oh I just realised I could add this to the 'run' challenge at CASology as this is exactly what I did...turned the paper all ways so that the paint would run more and be less uniform.

I will also enter it into the 'nature' challenge at The Mixed Media Challenge as I do love the texture of this paper and think it really shows up in this photo. I am sure they are fed up with me over there as I have entered so many times but I kinda like the fact that I am making CAS mixed media cards and I really thought I would never be able to do this!

Now I need to rest my brain...goodbye x

  11. Hope your brain is doing better, Sandie ;) This rainbow tugs at my heart. So sweet and definitely much better with unkept edges. Great to see this CAS textured beauty in the MMCC gallery too.
