To dip his brush in dyes of heaven

I have a really CAS card to share today featuring a lovely chippie from Make It Crafty and one half of a Tim Holtz Crazy Talk sentiment.

I went with rainbow colours on my chippie as that’s the current theme over at AAA Cards, also added in a rainbow assortment of enamel dots to finish off my card.  I echoed the rainbow element in the designer paper I framed my top black panel with, wanted to break up all the black without making the card fussy.  I thought a multi-coloured ‘birthday’ would be too much so I added this in with some white embossing powder.

I let the chippie and stamp do all the work on this card so I could also play along at Inky Chicks where they’re challenging you to use a sentiment instead of an image.  A great way to produce a striking card in a lot less time that with an image.

Over at Watercooler Wednesday Heidi’s set a masculine.  This card is heading out to a male colleague.  I love enamel dots for a great embellie that keeps a card masculine and combined with my monochromatic base and just the splash of rainbow colour I think this is dramatic but still suitably masculine.

  1. Loving that rainbow chippie! Great card. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  2. Great colours and rainbow sentiment for this masculine card Emily. CAS but nicely laid out, and I love the pops of colour from the enamel dots, which I agree lend a real masculine feel. Thanks for joining us this week at the Watercooler Wednesday challenge.

  3. What a great masculine card, Emily! I love the way the narrow band of Designer paper visible echoes the bright rainbow colours of your sentiment and enamel dots. You've kept it clean and simple but with a touch of elegance. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  4. I love the white outline around the rainbow sentiment. Makes it stand out! Thanks for playing with us at AAA Cards. :)

  5. Gorgeous colors and shine. Thank you for sharing with us at AAA Cards.
