This week's challenge was to use dry embossing and rainbows...whether it be rainbow colors or the actual thing. So I decided to make a really complicated rainbow doily. Here's my tutorial on the how's...if it's confusing just email me any questions you may have..
First off I cut out small strips of Papertrey Ink cardstock (all the same size). I then glued it (I used a glue stick that would only slightly adhere it so it could be removed) to a thin piece of plastic. I ran it thru my Cuttlebug and used one of my PTI doily dies to cut out the shape. Here's the trick, it punches out the doily perfectly but leaves the plastic intact...so it's kinda lik peeling a sticker off something. I then removed my doily pieces and adhered it to another piece of cardstock, making sure everything aligned pefectly and cut out my doily with a Spellbinder Nestability.
The easiest way I have found to make a technicolored doily! I love the rainbow behind the October Afternoon clouds...and I still stuck some pink on my card! Can't make a card without a little pink.
