Rainbow Bright

Rainbow Bright



Good morning! It's Deborah here with you today. I've got some rainbow cards, using Concord & 9th's wonderful Rainbow Wishes stamps, to share with you. My first card has been inspired in part by the super rainbow pictures that the kids in my village have posted in their windows, and also as a thanks to all those key workers who are working so hard right now.


This card is super easy to stamp - each rainbow arch is a separate stamp and you can either have them flush or with a gap. I've gone for both - such a forgiving stamp set. I used a variety of inks for the stamping. My favourite yellow is Versafine Clair Cheerful - it gives such a bright, clear yellow. I stamped the sentiments directly on the rainbow. I used some shaped dies to cut the white panel and also a black panel for the mat layer. I die cut a couple of clouds from the matching Rainbow Wishes die set and added some texture to them using the image from the stamp set. I added a touch of colour to the edge of the clouds. I die cut the bold 'Thank you' from black card and layered it on several white die cuts. I adhered the clouds and die cuts to the card and added some shimmer to the die cut words. 



On the inside, I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel I added a greeting that matched perfectly with the front. The verse comes from another Concord & 9th set - Thankful Leaves Turnabout.



My second card has a much softer, pastel rainbow. I decided to use pale grey for the words as black would have been much too strong. I added flowers under the rainbow for a lovely spring look. I coloured the flowers with Copic markers. I cut a stitch edged die to cut out the panel and also the design paper mat layer. 



On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale grey design paper for the mat layer. On the white panel I stamped a simple greeting from Beautiful Butterfly, and added another of the flower clusters.


I know that Tara is getting the new release from Concord & 9th, but if you can't wait do visit the shop to see some of the older stamp and die sets - they are so versatile. That's all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping be. Be safe.
