Gallery Idol Round 2


I am soooo excited you are here with me today for Round 2 of Gallery Idol! Our theme for this round is all about color, specifically a rainbow/Color my world theme! First off, here is my Round 2 card...

IMG_7010_edited-1

Here is a little bit about my card.  I cut a piece of white cardstock down to 4"x 5 1/4" and masked off a long rectangle with sticky notes.  I wanted to use colors that were different from the normal rainbow colors, so I picked 5 of my favorite colors and added them as a unique muted rainbow of their own.  After they dried, I stamped text background right on top.  I wanted it to have a distress look, so I didn't press down on the acrylic block very hard, leaving some holes in the text here and there.  I ran the whole piece of cardstock through my Big Shot wtih the Linen Impression plate.  Last, I add my new favorite flourish, some black pearls and a sentiment from Clear and Simples Craft Room set.  I added this focal point to a card base with foam tape for some dimision. 

And that is it for Round 2!  I am thrilled that you could stop by today.  I am so honored to be in this amazing group of ladies.  They are all so talented and I am sure we are going to be seeing some jaw dropping cards!

If you like my card, I would totally appreciate your vote so I can continue on to Round 3.  You can click HERE to vote.  If you have voted in the past, all you have to do is log in!  Thank you so much in advance if you do choose to vote for my card! 

Hope you all have a great day and I want to wish all the girls good luck!  I'm a cheering for you all!
