Guest Designer - Stamping Sensations Challenge!

Today, I'm excited to be sharing with you a guest designer card for the Stamping Sensations Challenge! As the winner of February's challenge, I was invited to join them this month, where the theme is:

'Somewhere Over the Rainbow'

The prize for the lucky winner is a £25 voucher to Be Creative!

I started by masking off a strip across the middle of a square of watercolour paper using masking tape, then I painted a rainbow across it using watercolour paints. Leaving the masking tape in place, I stamped my 'Big Butterfly' stamp (by Indigo Blu) over the rainbow using black pigment ink, then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. I then removed the masking tape, and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment (from the 'Go To Words' set by Visible Image), before distressing the edges of the watercolour paper and adding to a kraft card blank.

For more inspiration from the fabulous design team, please pop over to the Stamping Sensations Challenge.

This is a stunning card, Helen! The rainbow background is so beautiful, against which the butterfly is a perfect focal point. Thanks so much for being our April Guest Designer at Stamping Sensations, you've really done us proud.
