Rainbow Card

Over at Moxie Fab World  is create a card in which stamping is the predominant element.  Combining several challenges at Embellish Magazine  is to create something based on Rainbow Colors and combining the challenge at Hero Arts with the theme "watercolour" and with challenge from CAS-ual Fridays is "Getting Edgy".   I used the sketch from Lily Pad for this card.

Firstly, I colored all the rainbow colours on the white cardstock and use my finger with some water to run over the colours till I get the required consistency level.  To bring out the colours of the rainbow better, I used black as my base with the matching black flower from HA Special Moment which is white embossed.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.



Temperature for today is about 30 degrees celcius with clear sky and  tomorrow will be about 35 degrees celcius followed by thunderstorm!  Before signing off, I would like to leave you with this beautiful shot, Mr. Bee enjoying his meal from our garden which I just took an hour ago.  Have a nice day!

How beautiful, Lai-Yoke! In fact, you inspired me to pick up some watercolours while I was out today - I tried to find some with the kids' art supplies, but no luck there. Now to play with them!
Gorgeous garden photo - hello, Mr. Bee!
