Rainbow Aloha

Thanks to the hubby I've been able to get some time in for me to play!
So happy to finally have a day off from work and oncall and
 just be able to spend time in my crafty space. 
It truly is so therapeutic...haha.

I wanted to jump in to the latest Avery Elle Challenge

This was totally my kind of challenge as I realized I don't usually use too much white for 
my card bases.  I do love COLOR and went with this idea that popped in my head...

The Stay Fresh stamp and die set is one of my favorites from Avery Elle!
Super easy to do with die cutting a rainbow of cardstock from some scrap pieces and adhering 
to a black cardbase with multi medium matte glue.  Then I heat embossed the pineapple on 
vellum using Ranger Liquid Platinum powder and adhered with the same glue 
(tip: to keep the glue from showing through, I placed tiny dots 
in places where the stamp lines would cover).
I'm gonna enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge as well:  Make it colorful!

Hope you liked this fun way to use your dies and a non white card base!
Mahalo for stopping by!!
