Welcome to another month of Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful Challenge!  (BBB23)!  This month is all about The Beauty of a Rainbow!  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet -- combine all and you have
the colors of the rainbow! For this challenge, show us how you can combine at least three of those hues to celebrate The Beauty of a Rainbow on your card or creation!  Remember, too, that while we spotlight three true beauties  winners per challenge, our FAVORITE entry this month will also be asked if they would like to join the team for the August Challenge!



For my card today I chosen to go all guy with the colors of the rainbow.   Muted earth tones in hues of golds, greens, blues, and a touch of red.  With Father's Day just around the corner, I am in need of a few cards.  I am using Flourishes Guiding Light stamp set.


I used Flourishes Classic Ivory card stockI used the lighthouse image stamped with Memento Tuxedo black.  I inked the main sentiment with some navy ink.  The Happy Father's Day was inked with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink.  I ink disressed the edges with Ranger Brushed Corduroy ink.   I layered the focal image with a Spellbinder's die.  I added textured to it using one of the newly released Spellbinder's M Bossabilities folders for a more rugged distressed look around the edges since you cannot actually see the pattern itself.  


I finished the card with some sewing machine stitches, paper distressing, and Linen Burlap  knot topped with an oxidized antique gold button crest from my stash for a more manly effect.  


I use Ranger Ink Blending tool, replacement foam, and Ranger inks to slightly ink distress the edges of all my card  stock and designer papers.  I also use Scor tape as my main paper adhesive.  Love this stuff.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure to check out all the other beautiful creations from the Bring Back Beautiful Designers!
