Count Your Rainbows...

...Not Your Storms is just one of the eleven sentiments in Dare 2B Artzy's "Sunshine and Rainbows" clear stamp set. There are a total of twenty-nine high quality photopolymer stamps, which work modularly to achieve almost infinite variations; including birthday, thank you, and encouragement messages. 
I found I got the best results by starting with the smallest image at the center of my rainbow and building outwards, one layer at a time, using a stamp platform to position each arc. Alternatively, you can get a really fun casual look by hand-stamping the layers using an acrylic block.
The inks are Memento's Tuxedo Black and a combination of Distress Oxide Ink Pads (Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick, to be precise). I especially like the fact that by changing colors, you can add even more individuality to each card.
MT's Neon Gradation Trio of Slim Tapes makes the easiest variegated border imaginable, around the stamped rainbowscape. I created a coordinating panel of plaid using the same Slim Tape set and adding in MT Shocking Pink and Shocking Green Washi, as well as accents of Matte Black Slim Tape.


I hope this fun card has added some sunshine to your Thursday!
