Rainbow Puzzle

Hiya everyone!! I decided to play in the Splitcoast Stamper's Inspiration challenge (IC320). I used to play in them a lot. Then I stumbled on some other challenges I wanted to try, which left me with little time for the Inspiration Challenges. I wish I could do all of them, but as a mother of two young, active children with sticky fingers, I have limited time.

Today, I'm doubling up on challenges. In addition to the Splitcoast Stamper's Inspiration Challenge, I'm submitting this card as my second entry for the Runway Inspired Challenge.

The Splitcoast inspiration piece I chose was a geometric puzzle with colors of the rainbow. (See below) The Runway Inspired Challenge inspiration piece is also a colorful dress/purse with all the colors of the rainbow (also pictured below).

I am very happy with the outcome of this. I confess, it was not an easy card to make. I used my Silhouette machine and created seven layered circles - six on the outside and one in the center. Then, using the weld feature, I dived them into separate images and then cut them in various colors. Next I had to create the top layer in white using the negative of the first image. I basically made a copy of the image and used the internal offset feature. Sounds confusing, huh!?! Don't fear, because I like all of you, and because I know this sounds very confusing, I am going to make things a lot easier and give you the Silhouette file for FREE! It will be posted on the Free Silhouette Files page at the top of my blog. Yay!!

Thanks and happy crafting, my friends!

Wow! Awesome card - and done with the silhouette yet!! All of the crafters in my area that have a die cut machine have the cricut. I'm the only one with the silhouette and none of them really understand how much more fun and fulfilling (and cheaper) it is to do something on the silhouette. Thank-you for providing the file. I truly know how long you worked on it. Much appreciated.
