Art With Heart Team Creative Showcase August - Rainbows


With all that’s happening worldwide at the moment the Art With Heart Team are here with a Rainbow theme Creative Showcase to brighten your day.

Every month the talented ladies share their inspirational ideas in a monthly Showcase and this month our projects are inspired by Rainbows.

When I heard the theme was Rainbows, I just couldn't wait to get into my craft room and start playing with lots of ink and have fun! I mean who doesn't like Rainbows! They certainly put a smile on my face.

For my Rainbow project, I've created a wreath card using the Forever Flourishing Dies, coloured Inks and Watercolor Paper.

I started with preparing the coloured Inks and adding a little ink onto the two acrylic blocks. I've used Magenta Madness, Gorgeous Grape, Pacific Point, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody and Poppy Parade. 

Using a sheet of the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, I've spritzed water using the Stampin' Spritzer onto the paper. I've used the large flat brush tip of the Water Painters, adding colour to the paper and also mixing the colours together on the block. You can add more colour as you go. 

Once the Watercolor Paper is completely dry, I've die cut all of the pieces using the Forever Flourish Dies. I've added score lines to the larger/wider leaves for more detail.

To arrange the wreath as a guidance, I've punched out a circle using Whisper White Cardstock and the 2 1/4" Circle Punch.

I've used a lot of Glue Dots to the back of the leaves, starting with the larger leaves around the circle and finishing off with the smaller leaves.

As the Rainbow wreath is the main feature of the card, I've used Thick Whisper White Cardstock for the card base and the greeting in Memento Black Ink and fussy cut out. 

I hope I've inspired you with my Rainbow card  and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's Rainbow creation.
