Simples Sunday Rainbow
Following the LIM challenge theme, Rainbows, I have a couple of cards to show you and a little technique tutorial. The card above is a super simple one and very quick to make. I stamped a flower from Petite Petals in a 'rainbow' of colours and punched them out with the co-ordinating punch. On a card blank I stamped one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps in Smoky Slate across the card and a sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts underneath. All that was left to do was to position the flowers and finish them with a Basic Rhinestone.
My second card is an easy one as well but a little more difficult than the first! I used an acrylic block and markers for the background, cut out a frame with the Squares Collection Framelits and added some tiny flowers punched with one of the Itty Bitty Shapes punches, finished with a tiny Basic Pearl for the centres. The sentiment is from the Hostess set, Express Yourself.
For those of you who may not have seen the technique to make the background above I have taken a 'step by step' set of photos, shown below.
(this can also be done with ink pads)
