March at Stamping Sensations

Good morning, It's time for our March challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we are looking for
****Somewhere over the Rainbow****
As the title suggest we would love to see your hand stamped creations that reflect that song or the colours of a rainbow. I am sure you will come up with lots of fabulous designs.
My first card this month features gorgeous teasel stamps from Woodware. I created the background with Distress Oxide Inks on to a craft mat, spritzing with water, then laying over a piece of watercolour card. Once it was dry, I stamped with Versafine Clair in Nocturne.The sentiment is from Crafty Individuals, and is much straighter IRL than it appears in this photo!
 My second card was a respray and second 'dip' onto the same craft mat. I stamped the gorgeous Pink Ink Design hare onto the background once dry, along with the grasses and teasels from the same set. I stamped it a second time onto some smooth white card, cutting out and matting into place with a little 3d glue just under the ears. I am very impressed with the quality of these gorgeous stamps and I definitely need more!
Our prize this month is a selection of fabulous dies, which you can find more details of on the challenge blog.

You're definitely rocking these rainbow backgrounds Mrs. H. Two wonderful cards and I think I have 'Pink Ink' envy looking at your second card, it's terrific. Great intensity of colour on your first card. I love them both. Wishing you a happy and colourful week x

Two lovely cards Sally, love the inky backgrounds. The hare is a must have on my list! I nearly bought him yesterday but settled for giraffe instead. You are right about the quality of these stamps, love mine.
