Subway Art Over the Rainbow


A perfectly timed challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments is all about rainbows.  You can make anything that includes this week's theme of rainbows.  It could be a card, scrapbook page, 3-D item, party favor or whatever comes to mind.

I have paired a quick and simple card with a yummy and adorable goodie celebrating St. Patrick' Day.  My card was fast and simple thanks to the Lucky Frameable Template for My Digital Studio.  I shrunk the subway art styled template to fit an A2 sized card added a few bits o' bling and Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine and walla a card.

My goodie bag is sweet with it's rainbow of licorice where you definitely find gold.  I know I have said it before that I love candy and Rolos are one of those many candies that I love.  I bite them once and let the chocolate melt in my mouth then I enjoy the caramel.

For a super fast bit o' holiday decor I resized the template to fit a 5" x 7" frame, printed it out on Whisper White card stock, added three more bits o' bling to the outside of the glass, and walla a framed piece of subway art.  Just a note to let people know that I am a tad goofy.  I really have a hard time saying subway art because in the Bay Area the only subways serve $5 foot longs.  So, since we have the Bay Area Rapid Transit, aka Bart, I will forever refer to subway art as BART ART!  You heard it here first.

Happy craftin, Elizabeth
