Somewhere over the rainbow

Naughty or Nice have an over the rainbow challenge this month and a DT call too, so I thought I'd have a go!

Debby Hughes had a fab watercolouring tutorial over on her blog today, if you fancy having a go with watercolours I'd definitely recommend it.   I used red, blue,green, yellow, orange and purple - think I could have been a wee bit braver with the depth of my colours, it turned out more pastel than I'd planned but I do like it :)
I also added some Spectrum Noir sparkle to the petals, clear gloss to the flower centres and some sequins and bling to finish.

My 2nd rainbow card uses this gorgeous DP from Taylored Expressions :)
Stamp from Lili of the Valley - coloured with watercolour pencils.  Silver sentiment sticker and silver sequins and bling from stash.  Nice and simple!

  15. Lynne your cards are stunning! I particularly like how you did the jar of daisies. Getting water to look right is tricky!
