BG Blueprint Challenge

Kelly Rasmussen: I love to browse art prints on Etsy and when i came across this one, I knew it would be great jumping off point to create a few cards. So I pulled out my stamps from the Second City collection and got busy!


I was inspired by the gradient of rainbow colors for my first card. I white heat embossed the City Map background onto watercolor paper and then painted a rainbow of Distress Inks mixed with water over the top.

I also masked off a section in the middle for the bold “hello” sentiment from the
Totally clear stamp set.


I love all the white space in the inspiration photo, so I mimicked the layout and design for my next card.


All the images are from the
Bright Lights clear stamp set. I think this would make a great card for a loved one!
