August Rainbow Card Challenge


Today over at the Rainbow Card Challenge Blog. We have a NEW challenge! That is to use Radiant Ruby in your monochromatic card.

For today's card, I started out by ink smooshing onto watercolor paper. Then I stamped the image down and put heat embossing powder on top of it. Finally, I heat embossed. And then I laid the geode onto the card base and stamped the sentiment.

Stamps: Concord & 9th Geode
Paper: CTMH White Daisy, Canson XL Watercolor
Ink: Versamark Dazzle Frost, CTMH Intense Black, Ruby
Accessories: Concord & 9th Geode die, Ranger Snowflake Tinsel Embossing Powder

A complete list of the supplies is under the picture. The list, contains compensated affiliate links. If you wish to create a similar card. There is no cost to you for using the links. But it does provide funds to help continue this blog.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Crafting,
