Two rainbow cards

Last week's challenge at StampNation was to CASE a card of SN member Michelle Allison and here's what I came up with this weekend.

I focused on Michelle's rainbow stripes with sentiment underneath, partial black border and black and white sentiment on top of the rainbow.

I used:
Stamps - Blue Skies (Papertrey Ink), sentiment from Birdie Banners (Concord & 9th)
Dies - Smile (SSS), circle die (Lifestyle Crafts)
Inks - Versafine black, Catherine Pooler inks (Royal treatment, Juniper mist, All that jazz, Grass skirt, Melon ice, Sauna, Rockin' red)

Today, I decided to create another CASE, adapting my design for a couple of current challenges in blog land.  I used the same CP inks, but this time I blended them over a masked area onto which I had black heat embossed the music stamp from the SOA Winterhaven collection (CP). For the inlaid sentiment I used the Noel cutaway die by Winnie and Walter and I added a little shimmer using a Spectrum Noir shimmer brush.

I'm linking up my card at:
