Rainbows at The Sisterhood of Crafters

Today our new challenge begins at 
and our hostess is Sandi Lee.
She has chosen the theme "Rainbows".
To read more about why she chose this theme
head on over to The Sisterhood Blog!



I love, love how this card turned out!
I purposely bought a special die just for this challenge.
Yep, I am crazy like that sometimes!..lol!

The die is Lawn Fawn Rainbow.
I  applied sticky back paper to my card stock
and then cut it out.
By removing one stripe at a time I could then
add each color of glitter.
I started from the bottom up,
however, when I make the next one,  I think I would start with
the boldest colors first, adding the lighter colors last!
Another tip, is I sprayed my rainbow with Krylon clear sealer
to hold my glitter in place.  Hairspray works well, too!

The glitters I used are all from Sparkle N Sprinkle but one.
The blue is called Lapis.



I treated myself to some Gelly Roll Stardust Pens last week
and used it on the image after I had colored it with my Copics.
It is a great way to add some shine and creativeness.

I was told about some card stock being sold at Michael's
and also treated myself to it.  It is from Recollections
and is 110# crisp white card stock.
I have to say it is by far the best card stock base I have used yet...love it!
So dig out your Michael's coupons and try some,
it is a bit pricey at $12.99 for 100 sheets, but the coupons help!

The sentiment I used is from Flourishes, gosh how I miss that company!!

Now head on over to The Sisterhood and see all the beautiful 
"rainbow of color" my "sistahs" have created!!
