Rainbow Stripes ...

Good Afternoon!  I hope you are all well ... if you are in the UK I hope you are managing to make the most of the wonderful weather.

I'm on holiday from work (the paid type) and I'm trying to catch up with all the household chores in between spending time away with my family.  I'm just back from visiting family in Lincolnshire and tomorrow I am heading to Edinburgh, with my daughter, for a long weekend to see my son - it's ages since I saw him and I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am!!  So in a break from chores and to help the day pass quickly I decided to create a couple of cards ...

A one layer wonder ... two stamps, eight ink pads and a pokey tool!! ... and all completed in less than 10 minutes (9 minutes and 40 seconds!!)

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #376

Inkspirational #166

The Male Room #91



  1. This is fab Elaine. I'm loving the use of those inkpads to create a beautiful rainbow of stripes, and the detail with the pokey tool is super. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

  2. This is so eye-catching with your beautifully stamped rainbow stripes, Elaine! And all under 10 mins.! The piercing detail is a fabulous finishing touch. Thank you for joining us at Less is More. x
