Thank you card using MFT Rainbow of Happiness stamps



Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. I hope your summer is going well and that you are enjoying some sunshine. 

This time we have a photo inspiration montage


and I used the top left-hand corner picture as my inspiration to produce this card that would be ideal for a man.


I began by using oxide inks to produce the background and once it was dry, I used a Papertrey Ink embossing plate to give the impression of boards.

The anchor die was a give away with a magazine and I cut it four times from red card, stacked them together and then added glossy accents to it.


The frame is from My Favorite Things and the little red dots at each corner were the fall away from the anchor die.

How would you interpret the photo? If you would like more inspiration, you will find lots of interest from the DT over on the ATSM blog.

I'd like to play along at
