Challenge Reminder: Lattice Rainbow
by Kim Singdahlsen
This month's challenge is Sending Rainbows.
My rainbow is a rainbow of color in all the little squares of the Lattice Plate. It was fun and easy to do and created a fabulous background for the bold "Hugs"!
I used a variety of the new cardstock from Memory Box. I didn't want to waste any. I figured I would use more than three squares of each color so I cut a small strip then just cut a small portion of the die.
I cut the Lattice Plate in white then adhered it to my card base. Then I just enjoyed piecing together my rainbow.
The Luscious Script Hugs seemed bold enough to hold its own with all of the color. After I cut and placed that, I wanted a way to highlight it. I used Three Intricate Cut Butterflies in the same rainbow colors. I wanted them to pop, so I actually ended up trading out the plain cardstock color beneath them for some coordinating polka dots. It's subtle, but I like that there's a bit of a difference under the butterflies.
This was so much fun to create. I've used the Lattice Plate in a previous card on this blog. On that card, I placed patterned paper behind it and it was a lovely look. This card is quite different - the Lattice Plate is a good basic die that can be used in multiple ways.
I hope to see you playing along with the Sending Rainbows challenge. As you can see, an actual rainbow isn't required - I've just used color for my rainbow!
