Peek-a-Boo Rainbow

Hi guys

Really quick post tonight to share a bright little card I've made to enter a few challenges:  So, without further ado, here it is...




and a closer view...


I started by die cutting the card base using the dotted die.  Then came the tricky part.  I cut a piece of thin cardstock to fit behind the front panel of the card and marked where the dots were in pencil.  I used ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to colour the rainbow stripes in blocks of two rows of dots.  I didn't want to see any colour overlaps through the holes so this took a fair bit of planning before I began colouring.  The rest was easy, the panel was adhered to the rear of the card front and I finished off with a simple sentiment.  Anyone that uses ProMarkers will know that the colour comes through the back of the card, hence the reason I used thin card as I then had to cover the inside with another panel of cardstock.

Materials used:

  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Peek-a-Boo Dots
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - A Little Sentimental
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • ProMarkers and FlexMarkers

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

CASology - Week 106 - Rainbow
Less is More - Week 182 - Anything Goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge #124 - Spots and Stripes (die cut spots and stripes of colour)
Merry Monday - Anything Goes Birthday


Thanks for popping by, hope to see you again soon.  It's Friday tomorrow, so all is good :)
