Painting Rainbows


Todays card has been created from another of the Country Cousins Stamps from Funky Kits, this one is called Painting Rainbows. Ive stamped the image onto white card and used my Faber Castell colouring pencils on this one, then Ive cut it out with one of my Nestabilitie dies, and used a larger one with a piece of Teal coloured pearlescard card for the mount, the greeting was also done in the same way.

The base card is another of the 8"x 8" inch white cards cut from an A3 piece of card, on which I have layered a piece of dark green card with one of the Bearly Mine Designs, I then used another piece of pale green card and run this through my cuttlebug with one of the embossing folders. The last layer is another piece of green card, and top of this I have layered up two of the patterned papers from the Bearly Mine Cd, and punched both of the edges with the Martha Stewart Border punch. I have then stuck a piece of striped ribbon across all the layers and stuck them to the back of the first one. I also used a smaller piece of the same ribbon to make the bow.

The stamped mounted image was then stuck across this ribbon by using some foam tape and the same was done with the greeting and attached to the card below to the right hand side. To finish of the card I made up two flowers with my prima flowers and hung a double heart charm from a brad at the back which had been fed through a spacer. I then attached the flowers to the card with silicone glue but first arranged some punched out leaves then positioned the flowers on top.

Oh my Shirley this is simply gorgeous those colours are beautiful. I love how you have mounted that image the blue pearlescent card really stands out looks quite luscious. The papers are lovely I must treat myself to a Bearlymine CD I have noticed them being used on a few blogs now, I did manage to download a couple of freebies and they look rather nice as well.
