TAKE 5 ~ You are my Rainbow by Lynnda Worsnop

 Four fold card - For Martin

It is our wedding anniversary this week, so I need to make a card for Martin,
 I also wanted to make something colourful to be part of this months TAKE 5. 
I and just to make sure I am on theme I used the rainbow words set, I think they they really helped me thank Martin for all he does for me.

Time has been short recently so no real time to make anything with with lots of work, but think I managed something for the man I love. 

The card was made from 4 panels. the inner panels is 14 cm square. I used the large Thorseby Stamp and treated it a little like a geli plate. The colour is the form of Pure inks over some pigment inks. 
For a spot of double inking. 
If that is not something you have seen me do, I ink the stamp in the normal way using the pigment ink pad. The PURE inks are splashed on my glass mat and spread them around a little.
The inked stamp in then  bounced  into the PURE inks.

Pure inks I used Lemon, Bottled Sunshine, the Jubilee Blue and French Mint.... not all at the same time.

Pigment inks I used Sea blue and Spring Green on different panels
The Rainbow words were stamped in Midnight Pigment ink.
I have used linen card for the panels which are then mounted on black linen
The long card is hammered card.

The new challenge starts for August and the new theme is words. 
So what are you waiting for?

Fantastic card and I'm sure Martin will love it. Great mix of inks and use of the Thoresby stamp as a gelli type plate!
