Update 4/29/2015: This card placed in the "Top Three" at the AHSC #104!
This card was made for Atlantic Hearts Sketch #104 as soon as the Triple Stamp design was published.
I printed a poem about rainbows that I found on the Internet using a large bold font on white cardstock (Rainbows Are Lovely by P. Kubicki). I cut three pieces of the text and three pieces of black cardstock using a die. I then used the triple stamping/coloring method to add the rainbow to the three pieces of text by using a homemade template for the stripes and sponging each color.
I adhered each text piece to its corresponding black piece and then the entire unit onto a black card base. The center piece was popped up with foam tape. Clouds and sky were added to the white background by sponging on the edge of a die. In addition to blue, yellow and orange were added to mimic stormy sky.
I also used a die to cut a cloud from white cardstock. I sponged the edges with blue, cut it into two pieces and popped them up with foam tape. For the inside I sponged the six colors of the rainbow on the right edge of the card. The sentiment was stamped, colored with markers, backed with a black die cut then popped up with foam tape.
