You Make My Day Brighter! -- Rainbow Cottage Scene Card

 Happy Wednesday my friends! Today I'm sharing my card featuring Honey Bee Stamps' Spring Cottage Village Honey Cuts and the Rainbow Accents Honey Cuts!  Rainbows, to me, are a sign of hope after a storm, and I love this sentiment that fits my card perfectly!

The card base is layered with a piece of Neenah embossed with the Spring Medley embossing folder. After I used Bee Creative glue to adhere it to the A2 card I die cut the Layering Vintage Labels frame two times from 80# Neenah. On one of the frames I taped off the edges with removable tape and blended on some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a detail blender brush. I added water and white paint splatters. When it was dry I used foam tape to pop it up on the card.

I trimmed the center from the second piece and then used my scissors to cut a hill shape. This piece is about 2 inches tall. I blended on Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide, added splatters of water and diluted ink.

I only used the three smallest piece of the rainbow in the Rainbow Accents Honey Cuts. I die cut it from 80# Neenah and then colored the pieces with pastel colors of Copic markers. These are the colors I used: RV10, Y00, YG11, B000, BV01, and V12.

I glued the rainbow pieces on, then the green grass layer. The Spring Cottage Village house is die cut from pink, white and gray cardstock scraps. After I glued the house onto the card, I arranged the tree, bushes and gate around the house. I decided to add a few clouds and the ones in the Cottage Countryside Honey Cuts are just the right size!

I stamped the sweet sentiment from one in the Daisy Layers Bouquet stamp set. I stamped it with Intense Black ink and then cut it out with the coordinating Honey Cut. Since I seem to really like all the dimension on my cards (LOL!) I popped up the sentiment with foam tape strips!

I love that I was able to take an idea I had in my head and make it work for this card!  I hope this makes your day brighter, and that you have found some inspiration too!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
