Beauty Abounds for Retro Rubber 155

 Welcome to the Retro Rubber's new challenge. This time it's a rainbow theme challenge: use either a rainbow, or rainbow colours, to create your card. Make sure that you use at least one stamp that is a year or more old, and tell us the approximate age of the stamp.

With the posting of the retiring list last week, I've been looking through my shelves and beginning my goodbyes. The Beauty Abounds stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty dies will no longer be available after the end of April and have been with us since January 2019. It was nice to be reminded of them so I decided to use them for this challenge. 

I started with a piece of Shimmery Cardstock and painted a rainbow stripe all over it using inks and a waterpainter.  Once it was dry, I cut out one layer of the Butterfly Beauty die from it and cut the second layer from Whisper White.

Once the two layers were together, I attached them to a piece of Whisper White and added it to a Thick Whisper White card base.

The sentiment, from Beauty Abounds, is white embossed onto Basic Grey card. To finish off the rainbow effect, I added is some sequins from the retired Iridescent Sequins while keeping to the rainbow colours.

You can see what the rest of the team have done and link up your entry by visiting the Retro Rubber Challenge site.
