Rainbows are among nature’s most beautiful, awe inspiring, sights, so it’s fun to try and capture rainbows on paper.
I began by painting stripes of color across Basic White Cardstock, large enough to accommodate two dragonflies. Four Stampin’ Blend colors were used, in an alternating pattern: Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo, and Highland Heather. Then, I stamped two dragonflies, from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink, on top of the rainbow stripes.
Next, I used the Dragonfly Punch for cutting, which made it very easy, and I placed them on Dimensionals.
For the background, I applied Balmy Blue Ink to a Blending Brush, and with a light touch in a circular motion, colored Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″.
After coloring, I cut an inch off the side of the sky background, and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Then, I glued both pieces to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, making sure the border was even.
For a bit more rainbow, I used the Classic Label Punch to cut a piece of the remaining stripe, and glued it in place.
Before attaching the dragonflies, I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue Ink. “Thinking of you” is from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set.
The Opal Rounds glisten in rainbow colors, so I had to add them as a final touch.
I was inspired by Fusion.
