Sweet Stampin' August Guest Designer - Rainbows

Hi everyone! I'm pretty excited to say that I have been asked to Guest Design for the month of August for the Sweet Stampin' Challenge! This week the challenge theme is Rainbows. It can either be a rainbow image or the colors of a rainbow. Be sure to head over to the main blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has created!

For my card,  I stitched the colors of the rainbow and the edge of the cloud by hand. I didn't have any of the colors I needed, so I colored white thread with my ProMarkers to get the colors of the rainbow. This worked pretty well except the red really stained the paper and my hands even though the thread was dry.

Paper: Echo Park Dots & Stripes Candy Shop
ProMarkers: Poppy, Mandarin, Sunflower, Lush Green, True Blue, Violet, Blue Pearl
Accessories: Thread

Hey Kurley!

You put a lot of work into this and it really came out cute!The stitching in the rainbow had to be time consuming but you should be very proud as it turned out so good. I am sorry to hear about the red hands though, that really stinks.

Good luck in the challenges!
