DD2 ~ We Are A Rainbow!


Hi there friends!

Today's card is for the Dueling Darlings 2!

The DD2 is a card group with rotating hostesses

and this month I was the hostess not with the mostest 

for the May 2022 card kit.


We're crafters and sometimes you just have to roll with it :/

My theme this month was simple:

"We are a rainbow!"

 "Each of us brings a light and color to life ~~ 
from the quietness of the pastels to the boldness of the brights! 
 Each of you are in important "band" of the rainbow, 
because in order to have it we all need to be together as one."  

Since there are 8 of us in the Dueling Darlings 2,

and there are only 7 colors in the ROY-G-BIV of the rainbow,

I chose to be the ''odd man out."

Everyone was assigned a color in random selection

so I settled on brown since I didn't have a color to chose 

and it is a composite color.

Fun fact:   IF it were in the rainbow,

it would be somewhere close to really dark orange

between the red and green!

So here's how I made this!

The instructions were to use ONLY your color

so a monotone card would be created.

I started with the same rainbow dienamic from My Favorite Things

that everyone received in their color - mine is kraft-ish brown.

I used the Cloud Edger stencil and Tim Holtz distress oxide ink

in Vintage Photo and created a background.

And used it to stamp the sentiment from Altenew.

I wasn't able to find the rainbow sentiment I wanted to use

so I improvised and created an uplifting, positive vibes cards!

  2. Kelly, your card is gorgeous! I love the way your "Kraft" color added to the rainbow to give us each our own color. Such a fun duel! THANK YOU!

  3. You card is dang cute. I may not be one of the original members of the rainbow color crew--but I love your take on the challenge. It was a fun challenge and I am enjoying all of the sweet cards I have seen. Thanks for a fun kit for this challenge.

  4. Great card, Kelly!! Adorable in the craft/brown color. You could have used black because it's a combination of every color (if memory serves). Very creative theme for us this month!
