Two Card Tuesday ~ Part 1 NBUS

I'll try to keep this short and sweet because I have 2 cards to share with you and a challenge I hope you will go visit.  My cards today are a part of the NBUS challenge #5.  You can read all about it HERE.  Basically NBUS stands for Never Before Used Schtuff.  If you have been stamping for any amount of time you probably have new schtuff that hasn't seen any love yet.   I know I do.  I made 3 cards today alone!  I'll be sharing the 3rd card with you on Thursday.  You can see the second card  HERE.  



My first card uses the background piece I made in the video I posted last week.  You can CLICKY if you want to see how I made this yummy rainbow.  The sentiment comes from a stamp set I bought a couple of months ago and never got inky.  :(  Poor wonderful stamp set.  It stamped like a dream for me.  :)


Did I mention there are prizes for participating in the challenge?  Oh my goodness, there are a TON of fabulous prizes.  The best prize though just might be playing with your new but unused toys.  ;)

This so gorgeous! I am so excited to see this. I am having trouble viewing videos at the moment. I am going to be hanging my internet provider at the end of the week.
Can't wait to see how you did this.

I saw your video using this technique (I subscribe to your channel)-- this one turned out so cool! I love how it looks almost wavy. I wonder if other watercolor mediums will do this (I don't have the zig brushes - color me sad)? I'm gonna have to experiment.
