{Somewhere Over the Rainbow}



Hello and welcome to my blog! I hope you are having a good day! Today I am posting a card that I was inspired and challenged to create in this weeks challenge at  Moxie Fab World "Tissue Paper Magic".  After sitting at my craft table with a few sheets of tissue paper in front of me it came to me...how about a rainbow! When I started out I had no idea if this would even work, but as you can see from my card it did, and the results are ah-mazing! To create my tissue paper rainbow I cut several strips of white packing tissue about 1 inch wide. Next I chose 6 colors from my new A Muse Studio pigment ink: papaya, grass, orange, sky, and blackberry. I applied the ink to my strips of tissue paper using make-up wedges. I get them at the Dollar Store and cut them in half so I'm ok with throwing them away after using them.  I let the rainbow strips dry for a bit and then I began twisting them into shape. I used sticky tape to apply one color band at a time and using a twisting motion I created the color band.  The sentiment is from A Muse Studio as well as the pretty swallow die cuts that I added to my card. I cut them out in 2 colors to add a bit of depth. Those pretty dies come in two sizes and at only 5.95 for the set ya can't beat the price! I added glimmery brads to the corners and finished off the cards with lots of buttons to form the billowy clouds at the end of the rainbow. I had so much fun making this card and will be using tissue paper in my cards in the future. Thank you Moxie Fab World for the awesome challenge! Today I am playing along with a few other challenges as well:
