Rainbow Luggage Tower (CIC279)

It's time for another challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations! Come on over and join us. :)

This week our challenge is sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs.

Fresh Brewed Designs is offering our randomly drawn winner THREE digis! 

Wow! Thank you so much, Fresh Brewed Designs

This week our challenge to you is Around Town!! 

New York Skyline by Claire Gevaux

I am using Luggage Tower by Fresh Brewed Designs. I colored up my image using my Prismacolor pencils. I LOVE this rainbow look! Are you surprised? :) 

The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set called 'Life is a Journey'. I used Stampin' Up's White craft ink and put white embossing powder over to create a more vibrant white. I heat embossed it twice and on the second go, I had some powder stick. I also had a little trouble with the ink smearing from the baby wipe I used to wipe the pre-powder off the card. Silly me. Feel kind of dumb.

I dry embossed the panel (Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder) after I heat set and the heat emboss did crack a bit. This is the first time I have done that so if you have any advice, please let me know. So, a couple little problems. I guess if it was perfect no one would believe I made it, right? :) 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

  2. I'm a sucker for anything in 'rainbow' colours, so this just jumped out at me!! You've coloured so perfectly with pencils (I still colour like I'm 5yrs old....) and love that you used a black card, it really makes the colours pop. Gorgeous!! And I must ask, you've linked to so many different challenges. Do you have a secret fast way of doing all the linking?? It takes me so long when I have to link to even 3 or 4 challenges. Could you share your secret with me...please???

  3. What awesome colours Alycia and gr eat movie choice to go with the image.
