Rainbow circles ...

Finally I managed to create a card for my son ... it took me ages to come up with a design that I thought was his style and this is it:

I seem to have a thing at the moment for die cutting and using the negative space left behind rather than the die cut itself!  I also either use shades of one colour or every colour of the rainbow!

I'm going to enter the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #149, Clean and Simple
Stamping Sensations - June challenge, Dies and Punches


Edit:  Just popped back to list my ingredients:

Clearly Besotted Geometric Style II Stamp Set and dies
Distress Inks - Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves
Uniko Studio Background Builders, Round in Circles Stamp set
Memento Ink - Dandelion

Also, just realised I could enter the Uniko Studio Challenge - Anything Goes with the optional twist of Masculine Card - as I made this card for my son I guess it fits the optional twist!


  1. This is fabulous! Love the rainbow of colors and how you've used your die! So happy you could join us at ATSM!

  2. What a really eye catching card and fab design, I am guessing the patterns behind the circles are the stamping elements for your challenge as your posts doesn't actually say ?

    Super use of your dies and punches and perfect for our theme.

    Many thanks for joining in at Stamping Sensations challenge this month.

    1. Spot on Brenda! I've been back and added information about all the supplies I used.
      Thanks for the kind comment.

  3. Glad you shared this with us at Stamping Sensations Elaine! Love it!

  4. This card really strikes my fancy, Elaine! I love how it appears on the screens as striped 3D buttons until my eyes look again and realize it's a stripe inside the circle negative! So simple, but so utterly effective! I'm pinning this one and I'm sure your son loved it!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. I thought the same as Darnell - 3D buttons - until I looked at the second photo. What a fabulous effect! Thanks for joining in the challenge at Uniko.

  6. Simply fabulous Elaine. Love the colours and the fantastic stripy images peeping through the negative spaces. Super classy! Thanks so much for linking up and playing along at Uniko Studio & ATSM

  9. Great card! Love your use of the negative space on this. And the different patterns and color adds so much interest. Fantastic card for your son. Bev

  10. A fabulous design - so eye catching. It's one of those clever cards that look simple but actually takes a lot of work. I really like what you've done with the corners too.

  11. Wow, Elaine ... what a stunner ... circular negative space, rainbow colours, graphic patterns ... gorgeous ... and the sentiment banner is a fantastic contrast to all those yummy shades and delicious white space! It's Pinned! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Uniko! Anita :)

  12. Rainbows and geometrics = FUN! Loving the cascade of circles. Thanks so much for joining in on the Uniko Challenge. Hugs Bev x

  13. I think this is a great card - I love the geometric patterns in rainbow colours in the negative space. A super card and I'm sure your son loves it. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Uniko this month!
