Some Odd Girl's First Challenge!

Hi All,

We are celebrating the first Some Odd Girl challenge! The challenge is for your project to use a rainbow theme!  Now, you can take that however you like, but rainbows have to be represented somewhere on your card!  Head on over to the SOG Challenge Blog to check it out!

Here is mine:

I am using the newly-released Sun image from SOG - soooo cute!

My card base is a Whisper White square, then a layer of Basic Black CS.  On top of that, I made another mat from 6 different colours/patterns of SU DSP.  This is obviously my rainbow representation : )  Next, I added a large white panel, where the top and bottom are punched with an SU punch, and I added rhinestones along both edges.

I added a Basic Black strip across that, and then I made the panel with the scene.  It is a Whisper White piece, and the grass is stamped in Wild Wasabi ink with a miscellaneous grass stamp from Michael's.  I used a scallop circle to create the clouds with Bashful Blue ink.  I stamped the sunshine sentiment (from Verve) in Versamark, and embossed with Black EP.

Finally, I printed the sun onto PTI White CS twice, and coloured both with Copics.  I cut the sun rays out with a Circle Nesty, and added some Shimmerz for sparkle.  I cut the sun out with scissors, and added it on with Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyed, and make sure to check out what the DT came up with!  Thanks for stopping by!
