Birthday Rainbow Tune Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #188 + RCC #1)

Hello everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #188, Schwarz/Weiß + Regenbogen / Black/White + Rainbow.

And here is my take on the challenge: Birthday Rainbow Tune Card.

To make this card I used stamps from three stamp sets from various artists (find a detailed supply list below).

I stamped a super cute radio on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut it, colored the edges with a black marker, softened it with a stylus ball and glued it over another radio I stamped on a white cardstock paper. I fussy cut the radio again, this time leaving a thin white border around it.

And then my radio waited for three weeks to be placed on a card. Two days ago, I finally decided what to do with it and finished my card.

I stamped a sentiment on a white cardstock paper panel and glued it on a white side folded card base. I glued some foam on the radio and placed it on the card. Then I stamped four tiny stars as they are floating out of antenna.

As a finishing touch, I added white highlights with white gel pen and my card was finished. :o)
