a rainbow beach house card with mft

Are you craving a beach vacation? Me too! And while I can't really help you with the actual trip to the beach, I've got a cute rainbow beach house card to share with you!

I created this card with the MFT Stamps Beach Day card kit and a few other dies like the Sand and Surf and Cutest Clouds Ever.

I struggled at first to find a way to make precise rainbow stripes on the beach house. I tried masking (which is normally my go to) and then I tried Copic markers but I'm not steady enough to color a straight line, LOL!
I finally settled on making a stencil. I used the little porch die from the Beach Bungalow and cut it from a scrap of acetate. The opening was a perfect match for the "siding" on the beach house. I just moved the stencil down the house, ink blending the rainbow.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to pop over to the MFT blog to check out more Beach Day cards (and maybe treat yourself to the kit)!
