torn edge rainbow heart

This challenge intrigued me enough that I put my thinking cap on until I came up with this idea. I thought doing a rainbow effect with actual torn strips would be a bit different and then that the idea of adding them behind a negative opening would also work. I actually like the look and it worked better than I thought it would.

After going through my scraps, picking out those that would give a rainbow effect, I tore them roughly. Using a Hero Arts infinity heart die I cut the heart shape out of the same CS as the card front and lay the aperture over the now glued scraps. Although it isn’t showing in the photo, there is a slight shimmer to both the CS and the rainbow bits. Once it was added to the card front I thought about the sentiment, which in retrospect I should have decided on prior to gluing the focal image down. Fortunately the focal image wasn’t so dimensional that I couldn’t add the sentiment underneath.

It took me a while to find the right sentiment but in the end I chose this one from Hampton Arts as it seemed the best one. I added some tiny pops of color around the frame for added interest without detracting from the CAS look. I’m quite happy with how this one turned out, which is always a bonus to my mind. Thanks for taking a look.

  1. Sometimes I want to try something a bit different and when this worked I was pleased with myself. Thanks for the love.


  2. I was really pleased with this one as initially I wasn’t sure if it would work. Glad you like it too. Keeping it CAS is a challenge when doing something like this.


  3. This is beautiful! Love the torn strips inside the heart, such a clever idea! Love the colours too! Thank you for sharing and playing along with us at AAA Cards, hope you’ll join us in future challenges too. Take care, keep crafting and have fun!
