Hey all, this is week 2 of me hosting the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. This is so much fun. You know what they say “April showers bring May flowers” so this weeks challenge is to have rain 🌧 or a rainbow 🌈 on your card. I decided to have a bit of both. Last fall I made a Magical Rain card I really liked how it turned out so I thought that I would make a different version. I thought it would be really neat as a rainbow, I also changed the size of the card and the angles and this is what I came up with.
This card looks so much better in action so to see it in action please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram account.

I’ve been pretty busy (working on a really fun card for this weekends post 🤗) so I decided to post a card I made a while back (2014 😳). This is a back to basics kind of card with a little technique thrown in. If you look close I highlighted different spots on the butterflies with different colours of glitter. I found a way to colour my clearish Dazzling Diamonds glitter to match what ever colour of ink I was using. There wasn’t as many fun colours back then and even now sometimes it’s hard to find that exact match
I have a really busy week, so I had to pull a card from my photo archive. I also have been working on a really crazy card that I can’t post quite yet, but when you see how much work was put into It you will understand where my time has been going. anyway, this card uses one of my favourite old techniques, it is called Reinker Spread, as it uses die ink pad refills to colour in the image, it is a kind of water colour but you have to trust how it will turn out as it does get out of your control how the water moves the ink around.
