Rainbow Blooms

Good evening y’all,

There is nothing more cheerful than to look in the sky and see a colorful rainbow peeking out beyond the clouds. So today I thought I would share a little bit of the rainbow, in a card form.

First thing I did was cut down a card base using 110lb black cardstock. Then I cut down two mats, for the front and the inside of the card, using some 80ln Neenah solar white cardstock.

For the inside of the card I used my WRMK corner chomper and rounded the edges of the white mat. Then I used the brush stroke stamp from Maymay’s Patina Stamp set and stamped the edges with my distress oxide inks in rainbow colors (fired brick, spiced marmalade, fossilized amber, peeled paint, faded jeans, and wilted violet). I then used the sentiment happy thoughts from Maymay’s Sunflower Wishes Stamp set and stamped it using some versafine black onyx ink. Last two things I did was put some spectrum sparkle on the paint strokes and added a few pearls around the sentiment.

For the front of the card I used my WRMK corner chomper to round the corners of the white mat. Then I went ahead and used the ink splot stamp and stamped them off at the top of the page using oxide inks in rainbow order. I then took the stem from the sunflower wishes stamp set and stamped it under the ink splots to make them look like flowers using the oxide inks, I then took coordinating brads in rainbow color ad used my tonic studios craft pick to put a hole in the center of the flower. Then I used the leaf stamp from the same set and stamped them off the stems. Last thing I did was stamp the sentiment wishing you from the Sunflower Wishes stamp set using the versafine black onyx ink in the bottom right hand corner, and then I added some sparkle to the flowers and leaves using my spectrum sparkle glitter pen.

Thank you all for joining me today and I hope this card brings a little cheer abd sunshine in your life.
