Big Hugs - Rainbow Background

Hallo everyone ;o)
I hope you are all doing fine and that you get to enjoy some nice summer days! Today I would love to share this super cute card with you which I made for the new "Create Your Own Background" challenge at the Crafty Cardmakers:

Even though it might look different there were only three Distress Inks involved in creating this background: Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers. I love how you can get a lot more colours simply by overlapping them. It still is magic to me ;o) Once I had the background piece ready I set it aside to let it dry completely and went on die cutting the sentiment three times. I glued the pieces together to make the word die stand out even more. 

In this picture you can see the effect quite well. I am lazy so I usually put "Stick it" behind sentiment dies. Do you glue them together differently? If so I would love to hear which adhesive you use, because all the ones I tried are too runny or too thick when I lay them down and my beloved snail glue doesn't work for me either... Well, back to this card ;o) I had stamped the image in a very light grey and coloured it in a no-line fashion. I thought it would work well on an elephant ;o) I added it to the sentiment strip, added an additional dot detail to the background and my card was done. I hope you like it and that you will join us at the Crafty Cardmakers ;o) Happy crafting everyone ;o)

... to you all!!!
