Chasing Rainbows Blog Hop & a Birthday Month Giveaway!

We’re chasing Rainbows this July and the blog hop starts on 10 July 2017 and will close on 20 July 2017. That’s TEN full days of catching rainbows across our blogs!

After a long mojo-searching period, I've chosen a CAS styled card for my Rainbow.


I doused my watercolour paper, using the brush, then picked up each colour of my rainbow-hued Distress Inks.


 I was going for a more pastelised version of the rainbow.



The Great Impressions birds and unknown sentiment stamp were inked with Versafine Black Onyx and heat set with clear embossing powder.


I'm celebrating my "birthday-month" so time to share the prezzies. Leave a comment and I'll draw a winner on the 20th July.

Each blogger has designed and showcased their card, along with a quick tutorial on the making of their masterpiece. Some blogs will offer a surprise crafty gift too! This blog hop is going to be full of surprises and oh so much fun!

Here are the July 2017 participants:

Where have I been?

Moved home and business - changing my focus of what I want to do with my crafty life - learning a new skill - and getting to love making cards once again...
