Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog
In one small group I’m in a challenge is set each month. The title this month “Rainbow Storms” had me thinking a lot.
At one stage I was thinking of doing a rainbow of different coloured autumn leaves being blown about in a storm, but I’ve done something else lately with leaves so was trying to think of something else. In the end I thought I’d go for the obvious and include an actual image of a Rainbow and make a card.
What I Did
I used Microsoft Publisher to construct the rainbow and type out the wording. I then took the rainbow panel into IrfanView and cropped it as well as adding some raindrop effects. This was then printed out.
I stamped out the floral image and coloured it in. I stamped some different sized flowers and leaves from another stamp in the same collection. I started this several weeks ago, but the cateract operation has slowed things down a lot, and by now I can’t remember exactly what I used to colour in the flowers and leaves – though I’m pretty certain that I did a watercolour effect painting using Dinky Inkies and a purple ink from a different company.
I took a base card and attached the rainbow panel using fingerlift tape before putting on a frame made of strips of wood look cardstock. I then attached the flower and wording panels. The floral image was layered up with offset flowers using foam tape.
What I Used
Some of the things I’ve used I’ve had for some time so I am not sure where I got them or any details
